MANCHESTER: It can be said that this is apparently Mohammad Amir’s match, as he has take the two wickets so far fallen for England on the first day of Old Trafford Test.Alex Hales was his first hunt who went off for 10 runs. A fast in-swinging ball was all that opened him up to go through his defence and hit the timber.
Alastair Cook, and Joe Root built a very handy partnership of 185 runs, that not only recovered an early scalp but also put pressure back on Pakistan.
Cook went on to complete his hundred, a brilliant innings at the time of need.
However, it was Mohammad Amir again who removed English captain for 105 runs. What a ball to get rid of a set batsman. A batsman of Cook’s class.
Here is the video how Amir clean bowled Alastair Cook.
