“Over The Moon Now”: Aamer Jamal About Playing For Pakistan Against Australia in Tests

<p>Aamer Jamal, the all-round batsman for Pakistan, expressed his pride on Friday in representing his nation in the current three-match Test series in Sydney against Australia. Speaking during the third day’s tea break of the Test match, Jamal described representing his nation in the long-format game as a major “achievement” for himself. He went on to say that he has the confidence to play well in the series because of the captain, vice-captain, and coaching staff. Speaking about his 82-run strike in Pakistan’s first inning, Jamal said that the visitors were able to tie the game because of his collaboration with Mir Hamza.</p>

<p>“I am ecstatic right now. Being able to perform for my nation and represent it at this level makes me proud. For me, this is a fantastic accomplishment. Even though it has been a long time, I still remember the times I visited to see the Pakistan Tea Games; now, I am a representative of my nation. All I do is support myself each time. I believe in myself even when I give up runs. Giving boundaries is a part of trying to gain a wicket. The coaching staff, captain, and vice-captain have been a source of confidence for me. They desired that I bowl in the manner that I was. We were seven down for 227, but Mir Hamza’s partnership with him got us back into the game, and now we’re even up by a few runs,” Jamal said.</p>
<p>In five innings of the current Test series against Australia, the 27-year-old has amassed 125 runs at an average of more than 31. Along with his outstanding bowling performance, he shared the most wicket-taking record with Pat Cummins in the three-match Test series with 18 wickets.</p>
<p>Recalling the second session of the third day, Australia and Pakistan were playing their third Test match in Sydney when Mitchell Marsh’s half-century in the third Test and his partnership with wicketkeeper-batter Alex Carey placed Australia within striking distance of a lead.</p>
<p>Australia scored 289/6 at Tea, led by 50* Marsh. With Travis Head and Marsh both undefeated at six, Australia opened the second session at 199/4. Head’s miserable series continued when he was trapped leg before wicket by Aamer Jamal for only ten runs. At 205 runs, Australia was five down.</p>
