Pakistan paceman Mohammad Amir has demonstrated his recuperative powers for the second time in the ongoing Test series, returning from a hamstring injury to bowl on day one of the SCG clash.

Amir limped off the field shortly after lunch on day one of the third Test, clutching his left thigh after delivering a total of seven overs.

The paceman also left the field for treatment on his hamstring in Tuesday's morning session. Pakistan management confirmed the left-armer was hurt but he returned to bowl in the day's final session.

Amir was far from restricted after tea, bowling at good pace and striking the helmet of Matt Renshaw with a rearing delivery on an awkward length.

Amir proved on day one of the three-Test series that he is capable of miraculous recoveries.

He was taken from the Gabba on a motorised stretcher after suffering what appeared to be a serious knee injury during the first Test.

Amir was in immense pain after digging his knee into the turf, but returned later in the day to not only field but take the second new ball.

Australia hold an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-Test series.
