Fawad Alam

Pakistan’s head coach, Mickey Arthur talked about Fawad Alam on Thursday and said that the left-handed batsman needs to score quickly to get into the national team.

Arthur told Dawn News that Fawad Alam was invited to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) to evaluate his technique and fitness for the longer format of the game.

“(We invited Fawad Alam to NCA) to look at his techniques to see how many pulls and the types of strokes he has in his armoury, and how many boundaries he hits,” told Arthur.

The South African feels that Fawad Alam needs to score more boundaries in order to get in national selectors’ radar.

“It was good to have Alam at NCA. We got to know about his fitness for the longer format,” he further said.
