Test cricketer Fawad Alam enters Pakistan’s drama industry


Pakistan’s discarded cricketer Fawad Alam finds his feet in the drama industry after making his maiden appearance in PTV World’s comedy-drama ‘Ghar Damad’.

Fawad, who got chance in only three Tests for Pakistan since his debut in 2009, played a cameo role in PTV’s one of the famous serials.

The drama had Fawad as a cricketer who’s car got stuck in front of a house. A fellow actor takes the cricketer inside the house and then Fawad spends a full day with the people there.

The family members make the most of his appearance in their house and call all the relatives and neighbours to meet the left-handed batsman. Fawad featured in the whole episode of the comical serial and his acting pulled the attraction of the entire drama community.

The 33-years-old Fawad is usually overlooked by the selectors despite scoring runs heavily in domestic cricket. He has 10,000 above runs in First-class cricket at an average of 56.08.

He has also played 38 ODIs for Pakistan scoring 966 runs at an average of 40.25 including a century and six half-centuries. His blistering century knock helped Pakistan beat Sri Lanka in Asia Cup 2015.
