In one such instance during the Pakistan-India match at Eden Gardens, an Indian fan mocked Muhammad Amir and tagged Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson in his post on Twitter.

Instead of keeping himself as silent spectator, Johnson instead replied to the man, saying “…and he got Sharma again [with a emoticon tongue sticking out].”
His comment drew praise from Pakistanis and scores of other fans of Amir.
Let’s take a look how Amir dismissed Rohit Sharma in the World T20 match at Kolkata.
Sharma made headlines when he dubbed Amir an ‘ordinary bowler’ and hype around him. However, his comments rebounded on him when some of the ex-cricketers and cricket analysts took exception to his remarks and said Amir was one of the great fast bowlers in the contemporary cricket.
Amir had also sent Sharma to pavilion on his second ball of the first over in Asia Cup match last month.
