Fawad Alam is making a comeback into the Pakistan test squad as the team prepares to face England in one of their toughest challenges this summer.
“The English attack was accurate and good today (Tuesday) and their spinners especially Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid kept to a good length and line. However, I feel the Pakistan spin bowling will have the edge as we tend to be able to adapt to the conditions here far quicker,” Alam said this while talking to Khaleej Times. He is spot on as the series will revolve around how teams and especially the English side play the spinners.
Iftikhar Ahmed who played a gritty knock of 92 runs and remained not out was praised by Fawad as he stated ” Iftikhar Ahmed was consistent as usual which is why he is in the national squad for the English series here. In domestic cricket he has been brilliant and dependable,”
Fawad Alam will be looking to feature in the Pakistan’s test team that faces England which starts on the 13th of October but right now Pakistan team is a well knit unit in tests and selectors will think long and hard before making a significant change.
