    ***Unofficial*** Fawad Alam discussion thread

    This is a discussion on Fawad Alam because unofficially I think he is under-rated and unofficially definately up there with the unofficial great finds of Aamer and Umar.

    Details here:
    FAWAD ALAM

    Any official nonsense will not be tolerated and cheesecake.

    I thought he needed some more attention and I can't stand all the officialness.

    lol
    I will say it unofficially that i agree with u.. he is underrated because he doesn't have such explusive batting style as Umar akmal has.. but I truely believe that in couple of years both fawad and umar would be the backbone of pakistani bating line up in all formate of the game..I don't see any better batsman coming anytime soon from pakistan than these guys..

    Should be getting a gig for the test side before Manzoor, surely?

    Also a vaguely competent fielder, which is a bonus for Pakistan

    Both unofficially. But yes, Manzoor hasn't earned him spot as well as Fawad unoficially and as we saw him countless times he was there at the end of our batting line unoficially against New Zealand.

    This has a lot to do with his city of origin. Karachi......and historically players from Karachi have had a hard time making it to the top level because of the provincial lobbies.....Punjabis can't stand a captain from Karachi and can hardly see a player from their...and vice versa.....why do you think Miandad was betrayed by the players when he was captain? Why do you think Younis has been betrayed? the discrimination and racism is the part of the unofficial reasons why Alam a great find especially for tests in my opinion has not been given the proper chance...

    Its all that dirty political games that have plagued Pakistan cricket from the beginning.....i hate it....
    BE AFRIDI!
    Be VERY AFRIDI!!

    not very talented but seems steely an ideal player for a mediocre side who is looking to revive itself on the world stage.

    Seems a decent player to me, should be in the test line up tbh but I don't where he would bat. He scored a test ton agaisnt Sri Lanka batting at 3 IIRC.

    That wasn't the point the point of the thread, he has saved so many games for pakistan and people like you just belittle him and let talent like this fade FFS.

    This. Thread. Is. Coming. Back.

    My love for Fawad has led me to bring back this thread. Anyone up for match-by-match analysis of his games?

    Desperately needed in the side. Also Usman Salahuddin. Losers like Umar Akmal should get a kick in the backside.

    I officially say that he needs to be in Pak ODI and Test team,. but as long as PCB is running by jokers and there are culture issues within the team, players like Fawab Alam won't be part of Pak cricket team. Unfortunately the cultural issues is not only affecting cricket but the whole nation in almost everything.

    On a different note, I still believe If Younis Khan was was still captain, Pak would have been much better than they are right now.
