Pakistan’s fast-bowling asset Mohammad Amir is aiming to make the “best memory" of his life in England by beating the Lions on their own backyard when they will lock horns against the hosts in final Test at Headingley on June 1(Saturday).

Sarfraz Ahmed-led Pakistan has already taken a 1-0  lead in the two-match Test series and would be certainly favorites against England at Headingley to whitewash the hosts.

Amir, who played key role in Pakistan’s 9-wicket win over England at Lord’s with 4 wickets in their second innings wants to make this tour memorable, as the pacer believes that it will be a great achievement for the touring side to beat Joe Root and his team in their own backyard. 

As per reporters in AFP, Amir told reporters, "It's a big achievement winning in Test cricket in England against England at home. If we win the series I think it will be the best memory of my life.”

On Pakistan’s massive win in the first Test, the 26-year-old Amir, who is able to bowl regularly at 140–145 kph, said, “Winning games at Lord's - the home of cricket - it is very hard to win (in England). We did well at Lord's, but it's passed now. Everybody knows England are a very good side - I think one of the best sides in Test cricket - and they will come harder at us here. But we are ready for that challenge.”

The fast-bowler signed off by saying that Pakistan is looking forward to repeat their Lord's performance at Headingley to notch up an elusive Test series win against England.
