ISLAMABAD: Former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne has said that Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir is a fine bowler, adding that he will be at his best for the series against England.

Amir will likely be resuming his Test career at Lord’s on July 14 where he played his last Test match nearly six years ago in 2010. Warne said Amir will get a good reception in England.

Amir made his domestic comeback playing for Omar Associates in the Grade II Patron’s Trophy on March 13, 2015. He took a wicket in his first comeback over.

On August 19, 2015, Amir was declared completely free to play all forms of cricket from September 2, 2015.

He made his return to international cricket on January 15 this year, in a Twenty20 match against New Zealand. In February 2016, Amir recorded a hat-trick in a Pakistan Super League match for Karachi Kings.

Speaking about the Pakistan-England series, he said both teams were great bowling sides. “Their top order batting will be tested by opposition bowlers,” he said while talking to a private news channel.

He said the weather has been bad in England so the ball will nip around and seam, making it tough for the batsmen.
