Amir responded to a question on Twitter as he answered questions from his fans and also expressed his views regarding other memorable moments from his cricketing career till date. On being asked by a fan about his favourite moment from the Champions Trophy final, he answered that his first spell in the final where he dismissed Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan was his best moment.
