Cricket News: Twitter reactions to glorious Fawad Alam century | Twitter reactions to Fawad Alam scoring a fine century vs West Indies

Fawad Alam, the crisis man. The resolute Pakistan batsman is the perfect example of both persistence and taking your opportunity with both hands.

After playing his first Tests way back in 2009, Alam had to then wait 10 long years before playing his fourth. Fawad churned out huge scores season after season in domestic cricket.

Since his recall to the Test team, he has been outstanding.

This innings in challenging circumstances and conditions was something else. Walking in on day one with Pakistan sitting precariously at 3/2 after a heartbreaking first Test defeat, Fawad and skipper Babar Azam dug deep to put Pakistan in a position where they could put the Windies under pressure.

Fawad had to retire hurt not out on 76* due to cramp owing to the hot, humid conditions. The nuggety left-hander was back on the third day, picking up where he left off to score his fifth Test century.

It was challenging. The conditions weren’t easy on Day 1, the heat, it was humid and hot,” said Alam after the third day’s play.

He then spoke of the impact his father had on his comeback trail.

“And we were 2 for 3 so we needed to come back, had to build partnerships. That’s what me and Babar did on the first day. I am very happy right now, Alam continued. “Whenever you score a century for your country, you feel proud and that’s exactly what I’m feeling right now. I make things very simple. My dad always motivated me, and told me to just perform and your time will come one day. I just waited for my time and kept focusing on performing.”
