Pakistan left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir dominated in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) on Monday as he took career-best figures of 6-17.
Amir, whose figures are the second-best for a Pakistani bowler in Twenty20 history, accomplished the incredible feat in the Khulna Tigers’ qualifier against the Rajshahi Royals.
He also became the first player to take six wickets in a BPL match.

Overall, Amir has claimed 18 wickets in 12 matches at an average of 17.77 and an economy rate of 6.90. He is currently the joint third-highest wicket-taker in the tournament.
