We are beginning a new era in Pakistan cricket: Aamer

July 14, 2010 14:03 IST

Pakistan's young pace sensation Mohammad Aamer feels the back-to-back wins in the Twenty20 Internationals against Australia will give his side an edge over Ricky Ponting's men in the two-Test series which began at Lord's on Wednesday.

In the run up to the Test series, Pakistan defeated Australia in two Twenty20 matches at Birmingham last week and Aamer was instrumental in both the victories, scalping six wickets.

"The T20s went well for the team and me personally. However, as we all know Test cricket is a completely different game. Of course, the confidence we were able to gain from the T20s will be an advantage for us," Aamer said. 

He also believes that the Test series against Australia will mark the dawn of a new era for the team, especially after the recent changes in Pakistan cricket. 

"We are beginning a new era in Pakistan cricket which I am really excited about," said the 18-year-old left-arm pacer. 

Aamer took 21 wickets in the first eight Test matches of his career, including eight wickets in the two games against Australia.
