***Unofficial*** Fawad Alam discussion thread

He didn't look that good to me the recent odis tbh.
He's averaging 77 this year, there is no argument to support him being dropped (if that is indeed what this is rather than him being rested because they already know they want him in the WC first XI and are simply trying to sort out the rest or something)

I just don't understand why noone isn't outraged? If he is indeed dropped, surely the whole CW community should share my sentiment?

Fair enough. Was just giving my own impressions of him, that's all. I do remember him playing a damn good knock in the Asia Cup final, so yeah, he's probably hard done by.

It's not too surprising though. I've heard nepotism runs deep in the Pakistani cricket setup. Take Shan Masood for example. His father is a member of PCB's governing body and he's getting undeserved opportunities repeatedly for absolutely no reason.

That's more to do with the general lack of Pakistani membership and generally people who follow Pakistan's domestic scene. Pak and WI are very poorly represented here.

He was woeful against Australia yeah but he deserved the series or at least a few games against NZ. The fact he is has been dropped to bring back a long term failure in Younis Khan is very sad.

Oh wow, look at his last 10 matches. 800+ runs at an average of 90. WHY IS HE NOT IN THE TEAM HE IS AN ANIMAL!!!!

Good news for Fawad?

After failing so hard against NZ, end of the line for Shafiq in this format.

Bad news?

Younis getting a century after years of doing nothing, guarantees his spot for the next five years no matter how crap his contribution is.

Fawad Alam is one of the saddest stories in cricket. Players who have never performed play over him based on technique and class of which others do not have, but supposedly do such as the touted and extremely disappointing Shafiq, is one of the biggest insults in cricket.

One of the biggest jokes was Nasir Jamshed being recalled to the Pakistan ODI recently. Absolute shambles.

Fawad goes to Kenya and piled so more runs there I think too. Not that it means too much.

I think you mean when Kenya came to Pakistan?
