The ongoing eighth season of the Pakistan Super League has truly been remarkable and spectacular so far. Pakistan’s very own franchise cricket league has already completed seven editions since its inception. Now, the eighth edition has indeed lived up to the expectations of the supporters. Multan Sultans are on top of the points table with three wins from four games.
Case in point, Karachi Kings’ fast bowler Mohammad Amir made the headlines recently after he came up with an obscene celebration during the game between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars at National Stadium, Karachi on February 19. The incident happened during Lahore Qalandars’ run-chase when their wicketkeeper-batsman, Shai Hope was finding ways to go about his work.
Coming out to bat at No.3, the West Indies international did face a delivery off Mohammad Amir’s bowling. However, he was dismissed in the third ball of the sixth over. Shai Hope made his way back to the dressing room after he scored just 1 run. Mohammad Amir took his first wicket of the game and he couldn’t be any happier after getting the better of the opposition batsman.
Fans unhappy with Mohammad Amir’s gesture
The left-arm fast bowler hogged the limelight after he came up with a bizarre celebration after dismissing Shai Hope. While he produced a range of celebrations in a sequence, the fans spotted Amir mimicking former WWE Superstar Triple H’s signature ring celebration. The video clip of the same went viral in no time on social media channels.
