After having played his last Test over a decade ago, left-handed batsman Fawad Alam has been named in the 16-member Pakistan squad announced on Saturday. With an aim to bolster their batting unit ahead of the historic home series, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) decided to draft Fawad in the squad. The 34-year-old batsman earned his recall in the national side after displaying a fine form in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy Pakistan’s domestic first-class competition. He accumulated 781 runs at an impressive average of 71 in the competition, racking up four hundreds and six fifties. In his last six outings for Sindh, he has scored 116, 211, 65, 107, 29* and 92. Interestingly, Fawad’s three hundreds came at the National Stadium in Karachi (December 19), which is coincidentally the venue for Pakistan’s second Test against Sri Lanka. The first Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be played in Rawalpindi, beginning December 11 (Wednesday). Fawad has so far played three Tests for Pakistan in which he has scored 250 runs, including one century. His last Test appearance came in 2009 against New Zealand. Besides, he has also represented Pakistan in 38 ODIs and 24 T20Is. Squad for #PAKvSL Test series. pic.twitter.com/wglKwflMDe… Read full this story
