KARACHI: Pakistan's left-arm fast-bowler Muhammad Amir made a return to domestic cricket with a wicket on the first legal ball of his over.

Amir, who was banned for five years for spot-fixing by the International Cricket Council (ICC), was allowed to participate in domestic cricket under the council's revised laws.

He was given the ball in the second over of the Cool & Cool Presents Haier Super8 T20 Cup Group A match between Abbottabad Falcons and Rawalpindi Rams.

Falcon's batsman Sajjad Ali was bamboozled by an in-swinging delivery from Amir on the score of nought as he saw his off-stump flying.

Earlier, the Rams opted to field first after winning the toss in a rain-delayed match. Amir started the over with a wide but he recovered well on the first legal ball to blow away the opposition batsman's stumps.
