Breaking News: Pakistan Pace Bowler Aamir Jamal Signs for Bears

Pakistan Pace Bowler Aamir Jamal signs for Bears

Fiery Pakistan fast bowler Aamir Jamal has signed for Warwickshire and could be in line to make his debut in English cricket at Edgbaston tomorrow.

Jamal burst onto the international scene last December during Pakistan’s tour of Australia. There he claimed six wickets on debut in Perth. The 27-year-old bagged 18 wickets across the three-Test series and scored 143 runs batting nine, including 82 in the final Sydney Test when he smashed nine 4s and four 6s.

Aamir Jamal was part of a training camp at the Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul earlier this month but does not appear to be part of their T20 World Cup plans after missing out on selection against New Zealand.

Bears made inquiries about Jamal’s availability following the tour Down Under. And after securing international clearance Aamir Jamal landed in Birmingham this morning (25 April) and is pushing to start against Nottinghamshire in the Vitality County Championship this weekend.

Warwickshire Performance Director Gavin Larsen said Aamir Jamal has signed both red and white ball terms until at least the end of the Vitality Blast group stage in July.

“He really captured the cricket world’s attention in Australia,” said Larsen. “He took the Aussies on with good pace, bounce, and a combative approach, all attributes you want in a fast bowler.

“Pat Cummins was named Player of the Series but you could have made a very strong argument for Aamir Jamal to have been awarded that title. When we found out Aamir Jamal was available we did our due diligence and made an offer.

“He’s jumping out of his skin to be in the park on Friday. He was on the same Pakistan training camp with Hassan so we know he’s fit and strong.”

The Squad of Warwickshire

Jamal joins his compatriot Hasan Ali in Warwickshire’s squad, who was also left out of the ongoing New Zealand series after being invited to Pakistan’s recent training camp. They will fill Warwickshire’s two permitted overseas spots until the end of July, while Hasan’s contract includes an option to extend into September.

Warwickshire will be without Moeen Ali, their T20 captain, for at least the first half of the Blast as he is expected to be named in England’s provisional T20 World Cup squad next week. The club said in January when Alex Davies was appointed club captain that a decision over the T20 captaincy would be made nearer the start of the Blast.

They have strengthened their T20 bowling attack significantly in the off-season with the additions of George Garton and Richard Gleeson, though Gleeson could yet miss the start of the Blast. Aamir Jamal was recently signed by Chennai Super Kings as an injury replacement at the IPL, and they are on course to qualify for the play-offs which run until May 26, five days before Warwickshire’s opening match.
