Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir scalps three on first-class return
Taunton (United Kingdom): Pakistan's Mohammad Amir marked his return to first-class cricket in England with three wickets as Somerset collapsed here yesterday.
Left-arm fast bowler Amir took three for 36 in 11 overs, all top-order wickets including former England opener Marcus Trescothick.
Somerset slumped to 128 all out in reply to Pakistan's first innings 359 for eight declared — a deficit of 231 runs.
Amir's career came to a shuddering halt at Lord's in 2010 when, during a Test against England, he and Mohammad Asif were caught bowling no-balls to order on the instructions of captain Salman Butt as part of a tabloid newspaper sting operation.
