We all knew the boy had pace.
We all knew he could swing the red ball both ways.
We all knew he was touted to be Pakistan's next pace sensation.
We all knew he was one for the long term for Pakistan.
We all knew he would get wickets in heaps.
All that, Mohammad Aamer showed during his debut in the first test against Sri Lanka, with a match haul of 6-112.
The best part about that though, was that all his 6 wickets were top order batsmen.
Aamer got the best of them, 3 in each innings, 1 bowled, and 5 caught by the keeper or in the slips.
Just goes to show how well the left armer bowled.
King Sanga twice, Jayawardene, Dilshan, Paranavitana, and Warnapura - that's 5 of Sri Lanka's top 6 that Aamer managed to topple over in his debut test.
He has a lot of promise and a long road ahead of him; hopefully a bright one.
And hopefully he follows in the foot steps of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis and not Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif.
