    With an unbeaten 73 in a record 10th wicket partnership of 103 against New Zealand, Pakistani tail-end batsman Mohammed Aamer’s performance with Saeed Ajmal was nothing short of awe-inspiring. After the rest of the Pakistani batting collapsed in chasing a paltry total of only 212 runs, Aamer and Ajmal put on a fierce fight, almost clinching the series.

    In his impeccable batting against NZ that featured three huge sixes and seven confident fours, 17-year-old Aamer put his senior team-mates to shame and showed the way for Pakistani youngsters to never give up—-in play or in real life. It is an absolute confidence booster for a nation that really needs it in this difficult hour. rs-inspiring.html
