Pakistan’s Mohammad Amir took six wickets and smashed batters during the ongoing Bangladesh Premiere League (BPL).

Mohammad Amir helped Khulna Tigers reach the (BPL) final, as they defeated Rajshahi Royals by 27 runs in the first qualifier on Monday.

The left-arm pacer led Khulna Tigers to a 27-run victory against Rajshahi Royals by bagging six wickets.

He claimed career-best 6-17 to mark strong case for his national team before the ICC T20 World Cup.

Mohammad Amir’s scalps include Shoaib Mlaik who smashed the highest 80 runs for his team.

The other wickets of Amir were Liton Das, Afif Hossain, Alok Kapali, Andre Russel, and Taijul Islam.

Amir’s maiden six-wicket haul made it a cruise following Najmul Hossain Shanto’s unbeaten 78 had taken Khulna to 158 for 3 in 20 overs.

At the halfway mark, Rajshahi would have felt that they restricted Khulna to a small total despite Shanto’s long stay in the middle.

But Amir buried all hopes with his opening spell of three overs.

He became the first bowler in BPL history to take a six-wicket haul.

Amir began by removing the in-form Liton Das in the first over of the chase.

He then had Afif Hossain, in his next over, before adding Alok Kapali, caught at slip, later in the same over.

After Ravi Bopara was brilliantly caught by Rilee Rossouw at long-off in the fifth over.

Amir kept on for a third over with Andre Russell fresh at the crease.

He removed the West Indian giant with a superb delivery, for a duck.

Russell could do very little against the peach, apart from giving Rossouw his second catch in the space of six balls, this time at mid-on.
