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.
