"It was his own fault and one shouldn't cry on that. He (Amir) is definitely world class and is getting better and stronger with every match. Even Virat Kohli has acknowledged that he is world class. He is an inspiration for young fast bowlers. Today the length at which he especially bowled and swung the ball at that pace was simply outstanding," Waqar said about the 'Enfant Terrible' of Pakistan cricket.
Even Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni conceded that Amir's length was the key. "It was a great spell by Amir. His advantage was he bowled full. In this Pakistan team Amir and Mohammed Sami are the two bowlers who bowl a fuller length while the other two (Mohammed Irfan and Wahab Riaz) don't bowl too full," Dhoni said.
