Pakistan and the world’s fastest bowler Shoaib Akhtar has criticized Pakistan team management for not selecting Fawad Alam in both the Test against Sri Lanka in the ongoing series.
The Rawalpindi express has tweeted and wrote that no possible justification has been given yet by the management despite Fawad is in top form in domestic cricket and it is unfair to bench him.
No possible justification of not playing @iamfawadalam25 in both the Test matches.
He is in form. Playing domestic season so well. Unfair.

It must be noted that Fawad Alam was selected in the Pakistan Test squad after ten years and also scoring four centuries in the 2019-20 Quaid-e-Azam trophy.
Pakistan is in a spot of bother after winning the toss against Sri Lanka in the Karachi Test. They are struggling on 183-8 with Asad Shafiq batting on 55*. Pakistan made one change, Leg-spinner Yasir Shah replaced Usman Shinwari who is hospitalized because of typhoid.
