Left-handed batsman Fawad Alam once again stayed calm and replied positively to former Test cricketer and chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq’s remarks against him.
Fawad, who considers Inzamam as his legend, said that the former cricketer might have his own opinion but he never learnt to respect his elders.
“I am not even close to him [Inzamam]. I always admired him as a legend. My parents have always taught me to respect my elders and I don’t think of replying to him,
“I think comparing me with Mark Ramprakash is yet another pride for me. He has scored more than 100 centuries and I don’t even score half of them,” he said after being insisted to reply to Inzamam.

It is pertinent to mention here that Inzamam is reported to compare Fawad with former English cricketer Mark Ramprakash who had a strong track record in First-Class cricket, with 114 centuries, but failed to deliver at international level. He had a handsome average of 53.1 in FC cricket but managed to score 2350 runs in 52 Tests at an average of 27.3.
Earlier in 2018, when Inzamam was the chief selector of the national team, stated that there are better cricketers than Fawad in the country.
Fawad remained out during Inzamam’s tenure despite being consistent at the domestic level. He has now scored over 12,000 runs in FC cricket at an average of 56.4
