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.
However, his sublime batting outings in the domestic circuit helped the voices in favor of him to gain momentum. This club was recently joined by the Pakistani wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal who believes that the middle-order batsman should feature in the playing eleven against Bangladesh. Sharing his insights in a recent interview, the 28-year old said that Fawad’s flabbergasting consistency needs to be rewarded.
“Fawad has been scoring heavily from many seasons. There’s no reason why he should sit out of the playing eleven after such a strong domestic record. We need to pay respect to our domestic circuit like India does. There’s a reason for their emergence in the cricketing world” - Kamran said while urging Pakistan selectors to value the domestic circuit.
