Talking to the media, Fawad Alam said, ‘I have not reached any decision yet. I have neither severed ties with Pakistan cricket nor opted for retirement. I am committed to participating in domestic cricket with the aim of increasing my participation over the coming one to two years, I wish this journey of mine to be longer.

Indeed, the 36-year-old has done exceptionally well in first-class cricket. He has scored 14,526 runs in 201 matches at an average of 55.65, with 43 centuries and a best of 296*. The veteran player scored a century in his Test debut in 2009.

The Karachi-born cricketer scored centuries in New Zealand, Zimbabwe, and the West Indies. There was also a home century against South Africa. Alam’s career began to decline after the home series against Australia, as he managed only 33 runs in four consecutive innings. The left-hander was dropped after scores of 24 and 1 in the first Test against Sri Lanka last year.

With the likes of Saud Shakeel and Salman Agha making their mark in this format, Alam’s road back to the Test side has become all the more difficult. In Test cricket, Fawad has 1,011 runs in 19 Tests at an average of 38.88.
