Pakistan left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir bowled one of the best spells in T20 cricket in the match against India in the recently-concluded Asia Cup.

There has been a lot of hype about the speedster, and after his performances in recent times, Pakistan can afford to bank on his four overs during the ICC World T20 2016.

But, India star batsman Rohit Sharma thinks otherwise. He feels the media should stop giving him so much hype.

Amir has also been compared to the legendary Wasim Akram, and the Mumbai Indians captain feels it is wrong on the people's part to do so.  

"Stop talking about him already. He isn't the only bowler, Pakistan have five other bowlers who are doing well for them. There is just so much hype around him, I don't think it is right to give him too much hype after one match," Rohit was quoted as saying by ESPN Cricinfo

"He is good but he needs to prove it over and over again. Now people are comparing him to Wasim Akram and all that. He is just a normal bowler, on that given day if he is good, he is good. It is not as if he turns up and blows everyone away."

Rohit Sharma was dismissed by Amir during that incredible spell in the Asia Cup encounter between the two archrivals. Amir also dismissed Ajinkya Rahane and Suresh Raina, and that had put India in a spot of bother, until Virat Kohli came to the rescue. 

Kohli had congratulated Amir for that outstanding spell of fast bowling after the match, which India won by five wickets. 

"I would like to compliment Mohammad Amir for the way he bowled. I actually congratulated him while he was bowling. I was so happy to play such an amazing spell. He is a world-class bowler," Kohli had said. 

India are scheduled to play Pakistan in a Group B clash of the ICC World T20 2016 on March 19 in Dharamsala.
