In a brilliant last over against Australia, Amir once took three wickets in his final over which was a maiden and total five wickets fell in it.

During a group match between Australia and Pakistan at the 2010 ICC World T20, the men from Down Under, after winning the toss and choosing to bat, put on a brutal display of big-hitting, giving Pakistan a target of 192 from their 20 overs in the process. Their target would have been much bigger, however, had the then 18-year-old Mohammad Amir not produced one of the greatest “death” overs in the history of T20 cricket.

Going into the final over, Australia were 191/5 and on course to cross 200, but Pakistan took five wickets in the over and not a single run was scored, with Amir taking three of the wickets to fall. The other two dismissals were run-outs.
