    How would Fawad Alam's record be if he had been a consistent selection for Pakistan?

    I think he would've outperformed the likes of Shafiq for sure.

    He would definitely have been a beast in the UAE. Probably would have had a 45+ average.

    He would have been Yoni 2.0 for Pakistan with a UAE test average of 70+ with two triple hundreds and three doubles by now. Outside UAE too he would have been a respectable batsman if not phenomedulkar.

    Agree with that he would have outperformed asad for sure
    Poor guy could not get a proper chance in his strong format and now again comeback and will play on one of the toughest place to make a comeback

    Can't score quickly (important at #6) and outside Asia like Asad has.

    Most of his FC hundreds have been relatively quick IIRC. He’s not a tuktuk.

    In UAE would have averaged 60+ and around 30-35 outside Asia in my opinion. Was a far better batsman than Misbah who averaged in the mid 40s, so let's just say 50 at least.

    It is a shame he wasn't given the backing he deserved at the highest level. Based on his domestic stats he earned the right to be given an extended run to work out his deficiencies against the better bowlers and make the necessary adjustments to his style of batting so he can be successful batsman on the international circuit.

    Even with his shortcomings in his batting technique he could have easily fared better than then likes of Shafiq as has a much better temperament and ability to handle pressure than him. His excellent fielding and would have been an asset to the team.

    If he is recalled for the UK tour then that's the worse call back he could have gotten. But on the bright side an opportunity to show the anti-Fawad fans that he can perform on better wickets as well.

    I think he would've failed away and wouldve been consistent in the UAE. Shafiq until the past 18 months where he imploded was a much better fit for No.6 whilst there was no way Fawad was getting in ahead of Misbah and Younus in the middle order.

    All in all, I don't think PAK have lost much from not playing him.

    I assume it would follow the following pattern:
    played..dropped...played...dropped...played..dropp ed...made captain...dropped/losing captaincy...played..dropped for conspiring against successor captain...played...dropped...retiring as bitter commentator on tv.

    Would have Averaged around 45.
    50-55 in Asia and around 27-30 outside Asia.

    We already had Younis, Misbah and Sarfraz who were good players of spin. I would rather have invested in someone like Haris. World class player of fast bowling and even though he isnt as great playing spin but still would have done well in Asia like he showed in last SL series. Haris got injured in 2015 but before that his talent was wasted for almost 5 years


    Sarfi as captain'll lead us to glory.Babar'll be our best odi bat & Haris'll be world class in tests

    He has guts and tenacity which is why he would be decent abroad despite his joke technique

    Either he would fail to live up to his FC excellence or deliver the goods and his international record indicates he would've likely done the latter.

    He is very much like Younis, scores daddy 100s something which our team severely lacks after YK's retirement and in the very first series without YK, our middle order crumbled against a weak SL team!

    But apparently there are better players then Fawad going around!

    His career SR is 58 in tests and in domestic as well he tends to bat at 60+ SR which is terrific for test cricket!

    If the selectors had never selected Javed Miandad, there would probably be less outrage than there is over Alam...

    He would have done worse than Shafiq abroad, better at home - net result? inconsequential, if not detrimental, since we've been good at home through this time period I'm considering, woes have been away.

    well Miandad wasn't the most prolific domestic batsmen in the country history, Alam is - so I don't get your point

    Fact: Fawad is the most prolific batsmen in Pakistan's history
    Your opinion: He wouldn't score runs overseas
