Pakistan’s leading batsman Fawad Alam has given a big reaction after scoring a century in the first Test match against South Africa. He has said that even though he remained out of the Pakistan team for 10 years and he was not selected in the team, he would not blame anyone for it.
In the Karachi Test match, Fawad Alam scored a tremendous 109 runs against South Africa with 245 balls with the help of 9 fours and 2 sixes. The special thing is that his innings came at a time when Pakistan’s team was struggling losing four wickets for just 27 runs.
Not blame anyone
After this innings Fawad Alam said, ‘I will not blame anyone for the fact that I stayed out of international cricket for 10 years. The honor that I have got from the team while on the sideline might not have been available if I had played continuously for the team. I feel a quite good scoring this century because I scored runs when the team needed it. Allah helped me succeed.’
Fawad Alam made his Test debut in 2009
Alam and Ravi Bopara of England are the two cricketers from the world who have three Test centuries but not a single half-century. He made his Test debut in 2009 and scored a century in the second innings itself. However, he flopped in the next two matches and the selectors dropped him from the team after that. After 10 years, Alam made his return to international cricket in 2019.
