Aamer Yamin expresses his desire to become the best allrounder of Pakistan
Pakistan’s emerging allrounder, Aamer Yamin has expressed his wish of becoming the best allrounder of the country.
The 25-year old Yamin, who made his international debut against Zimbabwe last year, told Pak Passion in an interview, “I know that I need to continue to perform to the best of my abilities.”
The youngster from Multan is determined to perform well and he is not at all disheartened after being ignored by the Chief Selector, Inzmam Ul Haq for the A team tour to England, “I completely understand the decision [of the selection committee] as a professional, so there wasn’t anything to be disappointed about,” he said.
Aamer, who struck on his first delivery in the T20 internationals, is working hard to improve his technique and fitness for a comeback, “The selectors have a tough job and they do it well. What I need to do is to perform well going forward and work my way back into the team. I’m working on my technique and my fitness so that when I get another opportunity I’m ready for it.”
Aamer Yamen was selected as a batsman at the U-19 level, however, it seems like he has switched to a bowling allrounder, “I do enjoy bowling more than batting,” he added, “Given I’ve scored most of my First-Class runs batting at number eight position, my bowling is probably considered the stronger one.”
Peshawar Zalmi’s allrounder revealed that many of his ideals were part of Pakistan’s 1999 World Cup, “They were largely out of the 1999 World Cup side that reached the final; so the likes of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Inzamamul Haq and Shahid Afridi were people I looked up to.”
