Watch Video: Mohammad Amir’s Controversial Gesture In PSL Leaves Fans Fuming

Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir has time and again made headlines for his action in the Pakistan Super League.

The left-arm seamer earned plenty of flak for his on-field antics while bowling to Pakistan national team skipper Babar Azam. The incident even saw ex-Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi reaching out to Amir and speaking to him about his actions.

However, Afridi’s words seem to have had no impact on Amir, who left fans disgusted with another poor action on the field in a PSL match.

Mohammad Amir, who is currently plying his trade for the Karachi Kings, was bowling in the 6th over of the game against Lahore Qalandars. On the first ball, Irfan Khan Niazi took a brilliant catch off Amir’s bowling to dismiss the dangerous Shai Hope. After taking the wicket, Amir took a leaf out of WWE Superstar Triple H’s book as he imitated the famous but controversial ‘Suck It’ gesture made famous by the pro wrestling legend.

Watch the controversial gesture below:

In an earlier match between the Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi, Mohammad Amir and Babar Azam were embroiled in quite a heated exchange, and this in turn angered fans and ex-cricketers alike, including Shahid Afridi who had quite some harsh words for the fast bowler.

Reacting to Amir’s antics, Shahid Afridi had said: “Whenever a player doesn’t perform, or even if he does, I drop him a message to call him. Likewise, I messaged Amir yesterday. I talked to him respectfully, but I also scolded him. I told Amir, ‘what do you want?’ You have gained so much respect, you faced a blot on your reputation and from there, you made a return. You got a new life, in a way. What are you even trying to do?”

Ye koi tareeka hai? (Is this the way to play?) There are juniors around you, you are using bad words. There are fans who are disheartened to see that. Even we have used such words and sometimes, the camera used to catch us. There are families, kids watching you on television. Aggression is fine, but keep it under control,” Afridi had further said.
