Fawad Alam who was taken for granted and many thought that if he is part of team or not a part of team it doesn’t make a difference. He was known as a player who can’t take pressure of international cricket. He remained on and off in the team but never made impact in team he was also known for his slow run rate and many predicted that he can only perform in domestic cricket.
He once again performed in domestic and got selected in national team but this time it seemed that Mr.Fawad Alam is on a mission. The energy, enthusiasm, courage and desire to prove himself was prominent in his game he was giving more than 100 percent and what a performance this young lad has given in this Asia cup. The under estimated, slim size Fawad Alam rose like a giant in front of the oppositions . His power pack performances amazed everyone around the world he really played like lion and proved himself a headache for bowlers.
His two special performances were against Bangladesh and SriLanka in final. In a match versus Bangladesh Fawad and Afridi combined to take Pakistan home and achieve a very tough target it was the highest ever run chase by Pakistan and Fawad Alam played great knock of 74 on 71.
In final against Sri Lanka when Pakistan lost early wickets and huge pressure build up on the team but Fawad stood like a wall in front of Sri Lankan bowlers and scored his first century and what a marvellous performance that was although we lost final but it was Fawad Alam who took us to score a dependable target. In this regard Fawad Alam was awarded gold medal by Nadeem Omer director of Omer associates. We appreciate the step by Omer Associates and our players need to be encouraged so that they can perform better and boost their confidence.
