The announcer has been censured and told it was 'inappropriate and disrespectful' to goad the fast bowler on his return to international cricket after serving a five-year ban for spot-fixing.
Amir has also been subjected to abuse by spectators but New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White stopped short of asking fans to leave the 23-year-old alone.
Amir is on his first tour since serving a prison term and ban for his role in a 2010 spot-fixing scandal. During the third Twenty20 in Wellington last Friday, ground announcer Mark McLeod played the sound of a cash register when Amir was running in to bowl.

"I think it was inappropriate and disrespectful, and has the effect of trivializing one of the biggest issues facing cricket at the moment," White said.
"I've contacted the Pakistan team management to apologize, and to assure them there will be no repeat," he added.
