Mohd Aamir just 18

Well, not much cricketers would have achieved the name and fame what the 18 year old Pakistani cricketer could manage in the beginning of his international cricketing career. This was just his 14th test match and see what he has been able to do in just one year of his cricketing life. Well before coming to his exclusion from ICC awards list, one has to acknowledge his inclusion for the list before his exclusion. It is a dream come true for many aspiring cricketers to emerge as the award winner of the one mentioned at such an early age and early life as well.

Of course, it would be a new comer who would be the winner of the award for the most emerging player of the year and but need not be at such an early age as is the case with Mohammed Amir. moreover, the player who might just win the award for the test cricketer of the year need not be at an early age and for Mohammed Amir to have been one of the contestants for that award is a pride in itself. However, the world has to feel sorry for this young leg for not making it to the elite list and being expelled from the same.

Whether the allegations against Mohammed Aamir are true or not being a different question, for now, if the decision taken upon by the ICC in Aamir is considered, it definitely gives the world an impression that there is a hand of Amir in the ongoing spot fixing controversy involving Pakistani cricketers mainly. Keeping in mind his age and his performance, this might not be the case also. Mohammed Aamir was awarded the man of the series jointly with England's Ian Trott in the recently concluded Pakistan - England test series despite Pakistan not only ending as losers but also losing all their ten wickets for a score less than 100 on 3 occasions.

Had there been a hand of Amir in spot fixing, he wouldn't have emerged a success in that series if one side of the coin is considered. There too, Amir made news but that time for the right reasons when he became one of the few cricketers to have been awarded the man of the series at such an early stage and also for ending as a losing team player. However, if any one wants to know How To Make Money? here it is and one need not go in for any unfair means like it is seen by the ongoing controversy called spot fixing.

And not at an early age of 18 with so much cricket left on you. Take guidelines from Azharuddin who ended his career by making money by unethical means.
