Former England all-rounder Ravi Bopara has branded Pakistan left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir as one of the best bowlers in Twenty20 cricket.
Bopara’s comments come after he played for the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Amir also represented the Kings and claimed 13 wickets in nine matches at an average of 19.76.
Prior to the PSL, Amir featured in one Twenty20 International against South Africa and took three wickets at an average of nine.
“Amir’s bowled really well in recent times as in Twenty20 cricket you cannot bowl with tight figures and take lots of wickets in every game you play,” Bopara was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “That is simply not possible in the same way it’s not possible for a batsman to score a half-century or better in every innings he plays in Twenty20s.
“We all know that Amir is a quality bowler, one of the best in the world in the T20 format and one who will always do well, so I am not worried about his bowling at all.”
