Fawad Alam, the left-handed batsman, has been one of the highest performing individuals in the domestic cricket of Pakistan. The bloke holds the record of the highest First-Class average in the country. Despite his staggering records, Fawad has been ignored for the National side for a long time now.
He has become an unwanted hero in the country. He has played 247 First-Class innings, in which he has scored 11559 runs at an average of 56.39 (31 centuries and 58 half-centuries). With these records, you need a very placid heart to ignore a player.
Fawad played his last Test match in 2009, since then he has not been named in the National Test side which is quite surprising. After the retirement of Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan, it was on the cards that Fawad would make it to the side but still, he was not selected. Pakistan’s new selector, Misbah-ul-Haq, might have to think about this point and consider him for the selection in the ICC Test Championship.
