On 24 August, the seventh match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) took place in Basseterre between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots (SKN) and Jamaica Tallawahs (JMT). JMT were looking for their second win while SKN were looking for a win also as their first two games got abandoned due to rain.

However, JMT managed to bag the win and Salman Irshad won the Player of the Match award for his exceptional bowling performance. He picked up four wickets for 27 runs in four overs. But, apart from him, Mohammad Amir also came up with a three-wicket spell of four overs for just 20 runs to derail the innings of SKN. The bowler looked absolutely delighted and that video of him taking wickets has gone viral.

Speaking about his scalps, his first wicket was Evin Lewis, which took place on the fourth delivery of the third over. Lewis tried to hit the ball hard to the offside but he only found Fabian Allen at the deep backward point. Then, on the third delivery of the 17th over, Amir rattled the stumps of Cottrell with a slower delivery. His last wicket came on the fifth delivery of the 19th over which Muzarabani tried to heave across the line. 

But, he only found Green at deep midwicket. Speaking of the match, SKN batted first and scored 156 runs for nine wickets in 20 overs. In reply, JMT chased down the target in just 16.3 overs with eight wickets in hand. JMT skipper, Brandon King came up with another top knock to seal the victory for his team. 

After the win, King said: “(Pakistani contingent) have been great. Surface gave Irshad assistance and he made sure to make most of it. I decided to bring him early, with his (slingy) action, it's difficult to pick variations. We tried to get a very good start to make rest of the chase easier. It's good to have consistent scores which comes from consistency of approach. In Caribbean, you have to assess early. I have tried to add some skills in my batting and it's working well for me. Hope we continue to win.”
