Pakistan left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir reached the 100 Test wicket mark during the fourth day’s play in the Dublin Test against Ireland.

Amir took to the field despite a persistent knee problem that forced him off the field late on Day Three. The pacer reached the milestone when he had Gary Wilson edge an away moving ball to Haris Sohail at second slip.

Amir became the second left-arm fast bowler from Pakistan after the legendary Wasim Akram to pick up 100 Test wickets. Akram reached the landmark in his 30th Test while Amir did so in his 31st.

However, the day had started on an uncertain note for Amir after bowling coach Azhar Mahmood admitted the team was concerned about the nature of his injury and overall workload.

“Unfortunately, he came back after five years (out) and since he came back he has played every format for us,” Mahmood had said.

“We have to manage his workload as well so maybe that’s a sign for us to in the future to see where he stands. We are working on that, and hopefully we can come up with something.”
