In Pakistan Cricket Board’s continuous efforts to chastise and reconcile established players for their mistakes, it’s young Fawad Alam who has most been affected. Stellar performances in almost every form of domestic cricket, sweeping awards in tournaments to gather additional recommendation, Fawad was part of Pakistan’s fresh wave that were presented an opportunity following the 2007 World Cup debacle.

As a left-handed opener/lower order batsman and part time orthodox spinner, Fawad was a batting all-rounder that Pakistan lacked. Vital innings in limited and longer versions, like an 8-ball 23 to guide Pakistan to a T20I win against Sri Lanka in Canada in 2008, a century on Test debut also facing the Lankans at their capital Colombo in 2009 and various fifties in pre-tournament preparations (in Australia) were still rendered unworthy of extended stints. In 2012, he participated in the first edition of the Sri Lanka Premier League, representing eventual winners Uva Next.

Yet, few would dispute Alam’s technical nuance, as a batsman debuting at 21, is superior to many a regular in the side. It’s only a matter of time before Alam becomes a mainstay in the Pakistani middle order.
