Competing in a club match while serving a five-year ban for spot-fixing might have landed Mohammad Amir in trouble with the ICC but the Pakistan pacer has managed to earn the goodwill of the cricketers with whom he played.

Amir was described as dreadful while bowling but "nice and down to earth" off the field by the players of Addington, the club for which Aamir turned up.

Amir appearance in the match created a storm and the ICC is investigating if the Pakistani defied his five-year ban by playing for Addington.

But for Raheal Shafi, an Addington batsman, Amir's simplicity was heartwarming and he even prayed that the young bowler's appearance for the club does not land him in trouble.

"He arrived really early with a few of the other guys. He was very down-to-earth. No one would have known he was an international star.
