Aamir Jamal joins Warwickshire for County Championship

Pakistan all-rounder Aamir Jamal joins Warwickshire as an overseas player on a multi-format contract until the end of July. Aamir Jamal became sensational in international cricket right after his 18 wickets in three matches in his maiden Test series for Pakistan in Australia late last year.

Aamir Jamal made his T20I debut on 28 September 2022, against England while made his Test debut on 14 December 2023 against Australia.

Jamal will be available until the end of the T20 Blast group stages and has been named in Warwickshire’s 14-man County Championship squad to face Nottinghamshire at Edgbaston tomorrow.

“He really captured the cricket world’s attention in Australia,” said Warwickshire performance director Gavin 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 Jamal to have been awarded that title.”

Jamal has taken 94 wickets in 31 first-class matches in his career, as well as 37 wickets in 37 T20 matches. His batting average is over 21 across both formats.

“When we found out Aamir was available we did our due diligence and made an offer. He’s jumping out of his skin to be on the park on Friday. He was on the same Pakistan training camp with Hasan so we know he’s fit and strong”, Larsen added.

Aamer 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. He will join international colleague Hassan Ali at Edgbaston, who is already signed up with the club until July.
