With PSL 2023 commencing and with just two matches in, the audience has witnessed its first “heat of the moment” clash between the players. Yesterday, 14 February, the second match of PSL 8 was held at Karachi National Stadium. In the game, Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings squared off. Cricket is a game full of aggression and strong feelings, both from the players and the fans. So, fights and heated moments like these are quite common in such tournaments.
Mohammed Amir is a Pakistani cricketer and bowler for the Pakistan national cricket team. He is notoriously known for being the “angry young man” of the team. It is never new news to the public when they read or hear about Amir losing his cool during a game. Something similar happened in yesterday’s match. Mohammad Amir angrily threw the ball after getting a four from Babar Azam.
Muhammad Haris, a new player, blasted Mohammad Amir for an amazing four to open the innings. In the first over, Babar also smacked a powerful cover drive against Amir. In the sixth over of the game, the two stars squared off once more. Amir erred by drifting off his line and bowled an easy delivery down the leg side. Amir’s annoyance increased when Babar simply flicked the ball to the boundary. Have a look at the video first.

When Babar played a defensive shot directly at Amir on the following delivery, the bowler lost all control of his anger and flung the ball in the direction of the batsman. But as the wicketkeeper caught the ball, it was not intended for Babar. During the same match, just before this incident, Amir also abused Haris after being smashed a four.
Maybe Amir just wasn’t having a good day yesterday. But cricket fans definitely did not like Amir’s aggressive attitude. Have a look.
Who tf Amir thinks he is?? He needs to calm tf down. First he abused Haris and now showing unnecessary aggression to Babar. pic.twitter.com/HFkv2X15MF

Mohammed Amir has a lot of resentment built inside him. He takes it out immaturely on others. The day he realises that the resentment is for himself and what he did to himself, he will sleep easier.

That Cover Drive to Mohammad Amir was enough to tell the world who is Babar Azam?
