Fawad Alam grabs the chance

Fawad Alam after scoring his début hundred against Srilanka in Srilanka

His average is about 50 in the first class cricket but it was unnoticeable  by chief selectors. The time he grew a big moustache he was caught by selectors and was given the chance. Lolzz… the last part is of course wrong yeah he grew his moustache and it is a good trend in Cricket now.

THE MOUSTACHE EFFECT:

But why a player who scores a 100 in his début didn’t played consistently. If he had played for Pakistan since 2009 consistently I am sure he had score at least 12 or more hundreds up till now as the way Pakistani top order has been crumbled in the recent past against many sides.  He was the part of T-20 world cup 2009 and he impressed with his splendid fielding but since it was the time of Muhammad Aamir,  Boom Boom Shahid Afridi that’s why he was not caught by the media. But now when he got the chance to play in the final against the team whom he scored a hundred in test he grabbed it and played a responsible inning.

He is the fifth Pakistani batsman to scored a ton in playing at number five. Others were Imran Khan, Basit Ali, Ijaz Ahmed & Yousuf made twice.

He has an unorthodox way to bat a bit like Chanderpaul. He has the ability of taking frequent single and doubles which you normally don’t find in Pakistan team batters. His temperament of batting is better than Umer Akmal; even when he was batting a commentator said if Umer Akmal was there instead of Fawad Alam he would have played a stupid shot and was out.

I hope he play more and more for Pakistan and play great winning knocks which he can do. Because he has proved that he is not only the best batsman in domestic but also of PAK XI after scoring in a pressure.

Afghanistan Team can be dangerous in upcoming T-20

Star of Afghanistan team

Asia Cup was ended last night by an impressive win of Srilankans against Pakistan. The tournament was very important for all the teams in different perspective. But the team who has got the thinnest chance of winning-Afghanistan, yeah they don’t win it also has shown a great team effort and a great performance in the tournament.  They beat home team Bangladesh which was surely there one of the  target to do. Apart of that they played well against Pakistan but were not so great against Indians and Srilankans.

There matches in Bangladesh pitches can help them of showing great effort of and better performances in upcoming T-20 world cup. Afghanistan team will be dangerous in upcoming T-20 world cup.  They have a fine bowling attack and they could restrict teams like Bangladesh,  Zimbawe, Hong Kong Nepal in upcoming T-20 world cup. But their problem is there batting they are unable to chase or put a good total on board and they are heavily depend on their wicket keeper batsman Shehzad. But what’s the good thing about T-20 format is it suits their batsman and they played a nail-biting t-20 match against Pakistan couple of months ago.

Mighty Moustaches Making Strong Come Back in Cricket

Currently it is moustache trend in cricket.From Mitchell Johnson of Australia to Pakistani middle order batsman Fawaad Alam this is now getting popular and popular.  

Now let us have a type of Moustaches in Cricket:

Dangerous Moustache:

MJ

Australian had glories with moustaches in the past. Johnson Moustache had made the Ashes Series nightmare for English players.

Come Back Moustache:

FA1

SD

One of the strong come back from these moustaches. Fawaad Alam played superbly against Srilanka and Shekhar Dhawan has been great after having a moustache.

Reliable Moustache:

RJThis guy has become one of the most crucial player of Indian team not only from his bat not only from bowl but also from his fielding and that is making him the most reliable player for Indian team.

That’s why Boom Boom was not in Q-Mobile ads

I was just surprised and thinking for the past few months that why #LALA #BOOMBOOM #Shahid Afridi is not in Q-mobile ads. Q-mobile is one of the leading mobile phones in Pakistan. They took Fawaad Khan who is one of the most popular guy from Pakistan media industry, Humayun Saeed and then they fly to Bolly wood and signed Kareena Kapoor known as Bebo. There is also news that Q-mobile is negotiating Angelina Jolie in their next ad which will be the biggest victory for Q-mobile and a great chance to enter in International market.

Also best of luck to Lala’s Smart phone Haier which looks to me appealing and similar to my favourite brand- Samsung. Best of Luck to Javed Afridi. My best wishes are with him!!!

Pakistan Team Cruises in to the final of Asia Cup in Style

Since I start writing blog again, Pakistan team has started playing well. Pakistan team won the match against the Indian rivals in a very dramatic way, and we need just to avoid an embarrassing loss against Bangladesh. But it was changed in to dramatic and historical win against the Bengali tigers.

Pakistan team who lost the toss and bowl first there bowling. There bowling was not the 50% of what they put effort against India in the previous match. Sunil Gavaskar said about Pakistan Cricket team that ” Pakistan team is an exciting team because they are unpredictable” They could lose the match which no one thought they could and they could do it vice versa.

Today it was not the orthodox way of Pakistan winning the match it was there batting who did it for Pakistan Cricket team. Hafeez and Shehzad give a great start then once again a cracks came up in Pakistan cricket team Misbah and Maqsood (!!! He was given wrong out!!!) went out early. Then it was an unsung hero Fawaad Alam. The person who got his place in the team after 1200 days( more or less 4 years) has shown his talent and told everyone what he could do is really beneficial for Pakistan. And in the last but the greatest the show of the Match Mr. Shahid Khan Afridi who was given license to Boom as hit some powerful raining sixes and took it from the Bangladesh team. Yess Shehzad scored a century.

Crucial and Exciting Moments:

Pakistani Bowlers and fielders were ordinary

Fawaad Alam and Ahmed Shehzad played with responsibility.

It was Shahid Afridi’s day (I think that’s enough)

Misbah gone out on 4 off 4.

Pakistan team will play the final match against Srilanka and will defend the title of best team in Asia.
