After picking up the prized wicket of batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, Pakistan's teenage pacer Mohammad Aamer is living a dream but he is still looking to have more fun.

The lanky left-armer made an impressive international debut at the World Twenty20 in England last June and is making waves at the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa.

After Tendulkar, Aamer has now set his sight on another batting great - Australia captain Ricky Ponting.

"I was ecstatic after getting Tendulkar out. Now I want to realise another one of my dreams and that is to get the wicket of Ricky Ponting, who is another great batsman," said Aamer on Monday.

Pakistan are in a good position to reach the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy after winning its first two matches against West Indies and India and will top the group with a win against the Australians.

Aamer said that Pakistani bowlers were ready to take on the Aussie batting, saying that his team is looking forward to ending the pool stage with another win ahead of the last-four stage.

"We are all very spirited and I'm confident that the team will also do well against Australia," he said.
