Pakistan and England face off in the sixth T20I in Lahore on September 30. The hosts lead the series 3-2 after winning the last two games consecutively. The hosts have won their last two games defending and both the games went down to the wire. This series has been one of the most closely fought bilateral series in recent times. The series has also prepared both teams for the T20 World Cup.
If Haris Rauf was Pakistan’s hero in the fourth T20I, a young debutant named Aamer Jamal helped his side win the match in the fifth T20I. He defended 15 off his last over as he nailed his wide yorkers not allowing the England batters to take him for runs.
Jamal was an emotional man after winning the game for Pakistan. In a recent video, he shared his journey from first-class cricket to making his debut for Pakistan.
“Feeling is different and I am speechless with happiness. Saqlain Mushtaq told me about the good news that I will be playing the match today and I had tears in my eyes. He then asked me about my plans for the match. I told him that I will stay on what I have the best command on and will act according to the situations in the match. I struggled a lot to reach here. I played for Pakistan U19 and then had a gap of 4 years. But I kept working hard and never gave up. I thank god that this season went well and now I am making my debut for Pakistan,” Jamal said.
