Curious Case of Fawad Alam A Potential Star Ruined By PCB:

Fawad burst on to the scene throughout the 2006/07 domestic Twenty20 tournament, wherever he won each award price winning: man-of-the-final, man-of-the-series, best slugger and best bowler. This causes his choice into Pakistan’s Twenty20 facet, wherever he was given a good likelihood to prove himself in twenty-one T20 matches however it appeared as if nobody knew what to try and do with him. On a mean, Fawad featured six balls and bowled four.3 balls during a match.

His most unforgettable T20 performance came against Sri Lanka in the provincial capital, wherever his blistering knock of twenty -three off eight deliveries helped the Islamic Republic of Pakistan win the match. During this innings, Fawad came in at variety 9, behind Sohail Tanvir.

Fawad’s ODI career tells the same story. In his 1st seven innings, Fawad was created to bat at each position from variety 5 to 9 however once settled into his most popular position, he scored some valuable half-centuries.

Fawad’s average still hovers higher than forty that is over what the present crop of batsmen will boast. At the domestic level, Fawad has scored nearly 2000 runs in sixty-six ‘List A’ matches with a mean of forty-three.46. Despite a formidable ODI record, he still remains Pakistan’s most unnecessary player, having given up his position.

Earlier Career Starting:

He started his cricket career at his young age when he was only 17 years old boy. He works hard in his first match and shows his brilliant talent when he scored 43 in the semifinals against India, and helped Pakistani team to reach the final U-19 world cup which they want to win.

The real breakthrough for Fawad came within the 2006-07 season wherever he out-performed everybody during a native T20 tournament. Despite losing the ultimate, Fawad went home with all the awards of the tournament Man of the ultimate, Man of the Series, Best hitter, and Best Bowler award. He considered as the fifth-highest run-scorer and highest wicket-taker in the competition in Karachi.

Merit Selection:

When we mention benefits, we tend to mention performances and statistics. Analyze each and you may understand that the claims of ‘merit base selection’ from PCB is utter nonsense.

Fawad Alam presently averages fifty-five.77 in fantabulous, that is that the third-highest among batsmen beginning their career in the 2000s. The sole players with higher averages square measure Steve Smith (56.92) and Chiteshwar Pujara (56.77), World Health Organization square measure famous international cricketers, unlike him. Each square measure top-ranked within the longest format of the sport.


In the last thirteen seasons, Fawad has well-tried himself to be not solely a decent run-scorer however conjointly extremely consistent. In his last twelve domestic seasons, he averages fifty-two.82, 53.60, 49.11, 55.27, 97.70, 83.60, 64.00, 62.47, 48.54, 54.83, 71.90, 56.00, and 55.44.

Haris Sohail, World Health Organization created his debut against land in 2017, didn’t play any fantabulous match within the 3 years before 2017, however, he was most popular over Fawad Alam and Asif Zakir. Throughout those 3 years, Fawad Alam scored 2070 runs with a median of fifty-nine.14, whereas Asif managed 2415 runs (63.33 average).

Shan Masood is another player World Health Organization has been given probabilities, however, for the most part, he didn’t impress; he has fifteen take a look at matches underneath his belt and solely averages twenty six.43 with a better of one hundred twenty-five. His fantabulous performances square measure obscurity close to as convincing as Fawad Alam either.

Haris and Tai Long square measure solely the surface of however Fawad has been mistreated; the matter becomes even worse once PCB is truly considering Salman Butt for an attainable come — the person accountable for wrecking Pakistan’s name on the international stage and dragging Muhammad emeer down with him. To prime it all off, Butt’s performances haven’t been something special and his slow paced-innings solely hints towards stingy play whether or not it’s a domestic T20, sooner or later or a primary category matches.

The claim isn’t why Haris and Tai Long square measure enjoying rather than Fawad, which will ne’er be the argument since there’s no comparison between the 3. The comparison is merely drawn to replicate the odd choice method of PCB; it isn’t supported benefit however maybe favoritism.

Former PCB Chairman Shahryar Khan argued that he would have Fawad “among centrally contracted players.” He is conjointly additional that maybe age can be an element concerning his come. However, if that’s the case then why is Butt, 34, being reviewed? Why were Misbah-ul-Haq (42) and Younis Khan (38) within the team? Azhar Ali (33), Asad Shafiq (32), Yasir Shah (32) and Wahab Riaz (33) square measure all that includes for the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

This confusing scenario causes you to assume that maybe second probabilities don’t exist once it involves Fawad Alam. The left-handed baseball player was unnoticed throughout the reign of Mickey Arthur and despite being given hope for a come underneath Misbah-ul-Haq, he has been once more unnoticed for the future series against Australia.

This injustice points towards a transparent bias against Fawad Alam, which is entirely attainable given PCB has shown incalculable samples of such behavior towards players. I sincerely hope that the captain forces PCB’s hand into choosing a jock World Health Organization has given up his life for the game that we tend to all love.
