Amir goes flat out in nets as Pakistan team hit straps
All eyes were predictably trained on the maverick Mohammed Amir, who came out all guns blazing during Pakistan team’s intense first training session at the Eden Gardens, on Sunday.
The inswinging yorkers were right on target as Amir aimed at the base of a single stump repeatedly and with consummate ease.
Getting the channel right was top on the agenda of the Pakistani pacemen as veteran Mohammed Sami and 7 feet giant Muhammad Irfan also practiced with a single stump under the watchful eyes of bowling coach Azhar Mahmood.
Another veteran Wahab Riaz bowled to the batsmen at the main nets.
Having landed here last evening following much drama about their participation that delayed their arrival by three days, Shahid Afridi and Co wasted little time and checked in to Eden Gardens less than 12 hours after their arrival, and went about their practice session for more than two hours beginning at 9.15 am.
