New Delhi :  

It was Mohammad Amir's three wicket haul that decimated the top order of the Indian cricket team and led to Pakistan's win at ICC Champions Trophy final. The fast bowler dismissed the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma & Indian skipper Virat Kohli in the match and snatched away victory from the hands of the Indian team.

Back in 2016, Rohit Sharma had labelled Amir as an ordinary bowler and said there was no need to hype him after one match. This was after the pacer had dismissed the Indian opener in the T20 Asia cup.

Amir was interviewed by Sky Sports and asked if the wicket of Sharma carried special importance after the latter's comment on him. The left arm pacer answered back by saying that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and he doesn't pay much heed to others opinion. He also said that he respected the Indian star and even called him extraordinary batsman. He applauded the record of the batsman and said that he doesn't worry about what others comment about him. He ended by saying that he only concentrates on his performance and his contribution to the team.

Amir made a return to international cricket in 2016 after serving a five year ban due to match fixing. Since then he has picked up 43 wickets in 13 test matches.
