Aamir Jamal's Six-fer as Australia Scores 487 in Perth Test

In a captivating turn of events during the second day of the opening Test in Perth, Test debutant Aamer Jamal carved his name in history with a stunning display of talent, seizing six crucial wickets that led to the dismissal of Australia for 487.

Australia, starting the day’s play at 346-5, looked solid under the command of Mitchell Marsh at 16 and Alex Carey at 15, building upon David Warner’s commanding 164 from the preceding session.

However, the narrative swiftly changed when Marsh, on the brink of a century, succumbed to Khurram Shahzad for 90, disrupting his formidable innings just after the lunch break.

While Shahzad made his mark with figures of 2-83, it was debutant Jamal who stole the limelight, showcasing remarkable prowess with an impressive 6-111.

Pakistan’s historical struggle in Test series against Australia, having not claimed a Test victory in the country since 1995, added weight to Jamal’s exceptional performance. His extraordinary six-wicket haul on the second day in Perth marks a monumental achievement, placing him among the esteemed ranks as the 14th Pakistani to achieve this milestone on a Test debut.

In company with legendary players such as Arif Butt, Mohammad Nazir, Shahid Nazir, Mohammad Zahid, Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Sami, Shabbir Ahmed, Yasir Arafat, Wahab Riaz, Tanvir Ahmed, Bilal Asif, Nauman Ali, and Abrar Ahmed, Jamal’s debut triumph stands as a testament to his skill and promise.

The significance of Jamal’s feat is further highlighted by his distinction as the second Pakistani, following Arif Butt in 1964, to achieve this landmark on Australian soil. His exceptional performance not only shapes a new chapter in Pakistan’s cricketing history but also hints at a promising future for this talented newcomer on the international stage.
