Galle Gladiators fast bowler Mohammad Amir on Monday claimed the first-ever five-wicket haul of Lanka Premier League (LPL) history.

The left-armer achieved the feat in the Gladiators' 5th match of the tournament against Colombo Kings.

Amir picked up just a single wicket in his opening spell but returned with some superb death bowling later, picking up two wickets each in the 18th and 20th overs.

His historic five-for helped bowl out the Kings for 171 and boosted Galle's hopes of getting their first win of the tournament.
