Jamal was one of two players making their debuts for Pakistan in their opening Test match in Perth. Jamal, Shahzad’s and Shaheen Afridi’s first replacement, bowled a controlled but unspectacular first over.

Pakistan gave debuts to 27-year-olds Jamal and Shahzad before the Test match since they did not have a specialist spinner. After taking his fifth wicket, he let out a loud cheer and planted a kiss on the stadium floor.

As Australia’s innings came to an end, he lifted the ball to a resounding round of applause from the crowd before heading off with his colleagues.

Who is Aamer Jamal?

Aamer Jamal, a right-arm medium-fast bowler for Pakistan, was born on July 5, 1996 in Mianwali, Punjab, Pakistan. The 27-year-old measures 5 ft 9 in (175 cm) tall.

A look at Aamer Jamal’s career

Jamal spent most of his cricketing career in and around Rawalpindi, beginning his domestic career in 2013 with inter-region Under-19 and departmental Under-19 championships. He played league and club cricket in England following his debut for the Pakistan U19 team.


He debuted in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy for Pakistan Television for the 2018–19 season on September 1, 2018 as his first class debut. He was included in Northern’s 2020–21 Pakistan Cup team in January 2021.

He was added to Pakistan’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad in September 2022 for the series against England. On September 28, 2022, he faced England in his T20I debut.

He was selected for the Pakistani Test team against Sri Lanka in June 2023. He was called up to the Pakistani Test team again in November 2023 for a three-match test series against Australia. On December 14, 2023, he played in the first test of the series and it was a fire one where he grabbed six wickets.


With his haul, he became the first foreign player to take five wickets on debut in Australia since 1967, when Abid Ali of India took 6-55 at Adelaide Oval.

On day two, Jamal’s pace seemingly rose with his newfound confidence as his delivery speeds approached 140 kph and his 6/111 were the third-best bowling figures in an innings for a Pakistan pacer on debut.

His T20 debut only came last year, for Northern in the National T20 Cup, where he picked up a three-wicket haul, dismissing Pakistan internationals Ahmed Shehzad, Shoaib Malik and Faheem Ashraf and in this year’s National T20 Cup, he picked up nine wickets from eight games at 26.55, at an economy of 8.53. He’s also a powerful hitter down the order – his batting strike rate from 13 T20 innings stands at 176.86 and in the 2022/23 National T20 Cup, he scored 165 runs at 41.25, at a strike rate of 194.11 – the highest among anyone with at least 150 runs in the tournament.
