Fawad Alam, the middle-order batsman of Pakistan, is one of the most astonishing stories of the cricketing world. Despite being a sturdy and consistent performer of the domestic circuit, the veteran player has failed to impress the Pakistani selectors, who don’t find the batsman good enough to play at the International level.
Nevertheless, there’s no stopping the 34-year old batsman who keeps reminding everyone about his prowess. Another episode of this series was on display in his team Sindh’s fixture against Southern Punjab in the ongoing edition of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.
Battling against all the odds in a troublesome position when his team was 34-3 in response to Southern Punjab’s mammoth total of 517 runs, the prolific batsman smashed his 34th century to reach 12000 runs in the first-class cricket. The party didn’t end here as Fawad went on to convert it into an enchanting double hundred.
With a spectacular knock, Fawad once again found himself in the news as fans are raising their voices to see the Karachi born donning the green jersey in the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka. However, it remains to be seen if the elite batting outing was able to win the hearts of national selectors.
