& News

Pakistan fast bowler, Mohammad Amir, will join the Falcons for the final six Vitality Blast group fixtures, starting with Leicestershire Foxes away on Saturday 6 July. 

Amir, who has claimed more than 300 T20 wickets, will join up with Mickey Arthur’s side upon the conclusion of the ICC T20 World Cup, where the fast bowler will represent Pakistan.

Renowned as one of the finest white ball bowlers of his generation, Amir will bring even more winning experience into the Falcons dressing room, having lifted the ICC Champions Trophy, T20 World Cup, Pakistan Super League and the Vitality Blast in his career.

He will be available for six T20 fixtures, including home games against Yorkshire Vikings at Chesterfield, as well as the visits of Lancashire Lightning and Durham to The County Ground, as the Falcons target a place in the knockout stages.

Head of Cricket, Mickey Arthur, said: “The addition of Mohammad Amir to our T20 bowling ranks will give us a real boost for the second-half of the group stage, and he will be a key member of our attack as we look to progress.

“Since we found out he’d be going to the World Cup, we’ve been keen to make sure he is back with us for what is a key run-in in the Blast and I’m pleased that we’ve been able to get this over the line.

“I’ve often described him as the ‘Porsche’ of white ball bowlers, he’s a world-class player in this format and I’m looking forward to working with him again.”
