Mohammad Amir’s career started in 2007 when he showed himself as a promising young player. That year, Akram’s talent was first noticed at a cricket camp in Lahore. However, Amir’s reputation was tarnished by spot-fixing allegations in 2010.

2009 was a great year for Amir in Pakistani domestic cricket and he manage to take 53 wickets for the National Bank of Pakistan in his first season. This earned him a spot in the Pakistan T20I team for the World Cup. He replaced Sohail Tanvir, bowling with courage, accuracy and pace. Amir helped Pakistan win the 2009 T20I World Cup with his bowling speed reaching up to 90 mph. He continued showing great results in following ODIs, bagging 4/28 in August against Sri Lanka.

Amir got six scalps in his debut Test match on an away tour in Sri Lanka. He noticeably matured during the next tours to Australia, New Zealand and England, developing both reverse and new-ball swing. During the 2010 England tour, eighteen-year-old Mohammad set a record, being the youngest bowler to bag 50 wickets in Tests.

However, Amir was suspected to have been involved in spot-fixing on that tour and said to have bowled pre-planned no-balls during a Test. As a result, in February 2011, the ICC banned him for 5 years. Amir pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 6 months in prison in England. He made a comeback to international cricket in 2016.
