The Desert Viper has signed Mohammad Amir for the second season of the ILT20 league 2024. Amir will be joining his compatriots in the Vipers squad. Amir has an impressive career in T20s.

He has bagged 303 wickets so far in T20s and he played in CPL 2023 for Jamaica Tallawahs last year. He emerged as the highest wicket-taker.

He also played in Abu Dhabi T10 in the UAE where he was part of the New York Strikers who won the title after his five-wicket haul with an economy of 7.85. In the PSL last year, he was the leading wicket-taker for Karachi Kings along with Imad Wasim.

“In signing Amir, we have lined up a player who knows both the format and the conditions in the UAE, inside-out,”

The Vipers director Tom Moody was delighted to sign the player and praised the player for his contributions to the T10 tournament.

“He was playing in Abu Dhabi as recently as last month, for the New York Strikers in the T10 tournament, under one of our coaches, Carl Crowe, with the Strikers going on to win that event in large part due to Amir’s contributions with the ball.

“And in a world where player availability is not always guaranteed because of international commitments, the fact he no longer plays for Pakistan means call-ups for his national team are not an issue.

“Amir adds further depth to our quality pace attack and we look forward to welcoming him to the Desert Vipers and to him contributing to what we hope and expect will be a successful campaign,” said Tom Moody

“The dressing room has some very talented and experienced players like Alex Hales, Colin Munro, and Sheldon Cottrell, and some exciting new faces and I am really looking forward to playing with my fellow Pakistanis Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shadab Khan and Azam Khan,” he said in the release.

“I always enjoy playing in the UAE because the cricket fans always support Pakistan players and cheer us on. I know the local conditions as I have played a lot of cricket there, so that will be an advantage for me.”

“I cannot wait to come to Dubai, and meet the team and all the amazing coaching staff, including Carl Crowe, who I worked with in the T10 tournament last month,” he concluded.

ILT20 will kickstart on January 19 with Desert Vipers playing their first match of the season against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders on January 21 at Dubai International Stadium.
