On Friday, fast bowler Aamir Jamal became the 14th Pakistani player to get five wickets on their first Test match.

On day 2 of the Perth Test, Aamir ended with 6 for 111, which was the sixth-best bowling line for a Pakistani player making their debut. Australia was bowled out for 487 right after lunch.

Some of the other players who had taken five wickets on their first test match were Arif Butt, Mohammad Nazir, Shahid Nazir, Mohammad Zahid, Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Sami, Shabbir Ahmed, Yasir Arafat, Wahab Riaz, Tanvir Ahmed, Bilal Asif, Nauman Ali, and Abrar Ahmed.

This is also only the second time in Pakistani history (after Arif Butt) that someone has done this in Australia.

This record was set by Arif Butt in Melbourne in 1964.

Australia was out for 487 runs on the second day of the first Test in Perth on Friday.

On the second day, the hosts were 346-5 after opener David Warner hit a brave 164. Mitchell Marsh was on 16 and Alex Carey was on 15.

Marsh looked like he was going to get his fourth Test hundred when he was bowled by paceman Khurram Shahzad for 90 on the first ball after lunch.

Shahzad finished with 2–83, but Jamal, who was also making his debut, stole the show with 6–111.

They haven’t won a Test series in Australia since 1995, and they haven’t won a Test there either.
