Fast bowler Aamer Jamal will continue being backed as he is “our emerging player”, spin-bowling all-rounder Shadab Khan said.
Jamal has played two T20Is to date, with both coming against England in September 2022.
Despite not having featured for the men in green again, Shadab acknowledged that the 26-year-old is a cricketer on the rise.
“Even if he conceded a lot of runs, we would have backed him because he is our emerging player,” he was quoted as saying by Cricwick.
