Fawad Alam strongly eyes maiden Test 200-run mark


HARARE: Left-handed batsman Fawad Alam is looking forward to scoring maiden 200 in Test cricket. 

Speaking to reporters in a post-day presser, Fawad talked about his performance and said his plan was to stay at the crease for long.

“My focus was to stay there as long as I could. When you see pitch isn’t offering you much to play your shots then you have to find gaps and sometimes hit the ball hard to score runs,” he said.

“Alhumdulillah, I succeed in my plan and scored a hundred. Currently, I am suffering from cramps, hopefully, we will get out tomorrow with a plan and I would love to score a 200 but my focus will be to score as many runs as I can,” he added.

To a query about scoring three back-to-back centuries, taking his century count to four in just five Tests, Fawad said he always believed in himself and tried to give his hundred percent every time.

“Every batsman wants to perform again and again. I am lucky that I have been able to perform since I got the chance. Pray for me that I continue this performance for my team in future as well,” he concluded.
