LONDON: Mohammad Amir claims playing Pakistan to a Test arrangement win in England would be “the best memory” of his life.
Started up Amir was a key figure in Pakistan’s nine-wicket prevail upon England in the main Test at Lord’s.
The 26-year-old pace bowler took five wickets in a triumph that put Pakistan on course for an arrangement triumph.
The second Test of the two-coordinate arrangement starts at Headingley on Friday and Amir has his sights set on finishing a win that would positioned as the finest accomplishment of his profession.
“It’s a major accomplishment winning in Test cricket in England against England at home,” he said on Wednesday. “On the off chance that we win the arrangement I figure it will be the best memory of my life.”
Amir was pleased with Pakistan’s predominant show at Lord’s yet he expects England’s injured pride will guarantee the hosts push them considerably harder in Leeds.
“Winning recreations at Lord’s – the home of cricket – it is difficult to win (in England). We did well at Lord’s, yet it’s passed now,” he said. “Everyone knows England are a decent side – I think one about the best sides in Test cricket – and they will come harder at us here. However, we are prepared for that test.”
Mohammad Abbas was Pakistan’s most strong seamer at Lord’s, with eight wickets, while Hasan Ali took four in the main innings.
Amir trusts they all have Pakistan playing mentor Azhar Mahmood to thank for the harm they caused to England’s creaky batting line-up.
“Credit goes to every one of the bowlers, particularly Mohammad Abbas. He’s knocking down some pins extremely well – and Hasan Ali,” Amir said.
“Be that as it may, credit goes to Azhar Mahmood too. He’s buckling down with us and continues letting us know, ‘Pitch the bunch together, pitch the roll together’. I believe that was the fundamental contrast at Lord’s.
“We are appearing to be identical here, and I generally give the credit to Azhar Mahmood in light of the fact that he is working so hard – and he is the man behind this.”
