Confident Fawad hits another ton in first-class cricket
SSGC skipper Fawad Alam scores 27th Century of his first-class career, during a match between SSGC vs UBL in super 8 round of Quaid e Azam trophy.
An unbeaten 123 runs by Fawad Alam helps SSGC take first innings lead against UBL.

The 32-year-old Fawad recently became the second fastest player to cross the mark of 10,000 runs in first-class cricket. It was his 211th innings of first-class cricket.

He was confident that his team (SSGC) would perform well in the super-eight phase of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

The left-hand-batsman was declared the fittest player alongside Younis Khan, Misbahul Haq and Shan Masood at a camp organized at Kakul last year. Nevertheless, he has been ignored continuously by the selectors.

Fawad is one among the many Pakistani openers who made promising starts but failed to kick on to the next level. He made an early start to his first-class career at the young age of 17, and some good performances got him selected to Pakistan’s under-19 squad for the World Cup.
Fawad should get the opportunity to showcase his class in the knockouts, and thereby continue to plug away at the ever-receding prospect of an international recall.
SSGC will now face WAPDA at State Bank Ground in Karachi.
