5) Mohammad Amir
A fairy-tale comeback is what defines Mohammad Amir’s career. Again, a promising start to a young career was marred by an unfortunate event. In an investigation it was revealed that Amir, along with his team-mate, Mohammad Asif, deliberately bowled no-balls in the Lords Test in return for payment from a betting syndicate. This resulted in Amir been banned for 5 years in February 2011. Amir was also sentenced to six months in a Young Offenders Institution in Feltham. He was released in February 2012.
The recent concluded test series against England saw the return of Amir in test cricket and his performance was up to the mark. Life has come a full circle for him.
