Junaid didn't actually swing it around the corners like Aamer. But that determination to bowl long spells, capacity to utilize the wrinkle and bowl from around the wicket before long made him the ground tackle of Pakistan's pace assault. At the point when Junaid got through the Under 19 positions, he had a considerable amount of good and bad times regarding execution. but the selectors had the unnatural confidence in Junaid and he made his Test make a big appearance against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo in 2011.

Wrap Up Australia
- Early strikes from their new-ball bowlers, ably supported by the spin choke in the middle overs, helped Pakistan restrict Australia to 220 in the second One-Day International (ODI) of the five-match series, in Melbourne on Sunday (January 15).
- Junaid Khan and Mohammad Amir shared three wickets between them in the mandatory powerplay to leave the home side reeling at 49 for 3. Even as captain Steven Smith tried to restore some pride with a fighting half-century, Imad Wasim picked two key wickets to dent Australia's charge, leaving them with a sub-par score to defend.
- Pakistan made three changes to their side that included the return of veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik, while Australia dropped both their debutants from the series opener in favour of Josh Hazlewood and Usman Khawaja, and decided to bat.
- Glenn Maxwell, who hit a brisk 60 in Brisbane to revive his side's fortunes, got going with a beautiful cover drive and looked threatening enough to repeat his last-match heroics. What helped his cause was that Hafeez fed him with spin from both the ends. Maxwell hit the Pakistan skipper for the only six in Australia's innings but was sent packing soon after. The big-hitting all-rounder stepped out to Imad Wasim but a mistimed shot allowed the ball to sneak through the gap between bat and pad, before rattling the stumps.
- Matthew Wade, fresh after his maiden century in the previous game, was handed a caught behind decision early on, which the Australian wicketkeeper had overturned after the review detected no edge on the bat. Smith, who held one end tight, combined with the in-form batsman for the best partnership of the game adding 65 for the sixth wicket.
- Smith raised his 16th ODI fifty, off 91 deliveries, with a single off Hasan in the 37th over. It wasn't a fluent knock from the captain, but one that held the middle order together to put Australia on course for a 200-plus total. Wade gave him company, batting with the same confidence and hitting the occasional boundaries. With Australia managing to push the scoring rate up, Wasim was introduced back into the attack and struck soon after. Smith attempted to sweep the left-arm spinner but with the ball turning away, he could only drag an inside edge onto his boot that went on to disturb the bails.
- Wade too was dismissed in the succeeding over, off Shoaib Malik, that effectively left the tail to push for a respectable total. James Faulkner, Australia's hero with the ball in the first game, stuck around but perished in his attempt to fetch quick runs. Amir picked up two in his final spell to complete the formalities and wrap up the tail when Australia's scoreboard read just 220.
- How Australia's innings panned out today wasn't very different from that in the last game. Now for Pakistan to ensure they don't repeat their mistakes from Brisbane.
- Brief scores: Australia 220 all out in 48.2 overs (Steve Smith 60, Matthew Wade 35; Mohammad Amir 3-47, Junaid Khan 2-40, Imad Wasim 2-37) vs Pakistan.
