    "No point being bitter about my non-selection" : Fawad Alam

    Regarded widely as a more than able replacement for either of the retired duo of Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan, 32-year-old Fawad Alam has been unable to make a comeback in the Pakistan Test team since November 2009. With a highest score of 168 which he scored on his Test debut against Sri Lanka and with a current First-Class average of over 55, his exclusion from the Test side currently touring England has raised a few eyebrows.

    In an exclusive interview with PakPassion.net, Fawad Alam spoke on a variety of topics including what he is looking to gain from his current stint in the Lancashire League, his thoughts on his continued exclusion from the Pakistan Test side, the responsibility of experienced players to perform against England in the upcoming Test series and why he feels that Pakistan are capable of holding their own against an England side featuring the likes of James Anderson and Stuart Broad.





    PakPassion.net: You are back at Clitheroe in the Lancashire League after a successful first season, what are the aims and plans for this season?

    Fawad Alam:
    Club cricket in the United Kingdom can be a big plus for batsmen as you are gaining experience in conditions that are alien to you and you are expected to carry the team forward as the overseas professional. You are being paid and you are expected to deliver performances in every match and there is pressure on you to perform week in, week out and that I feel gives you a buzz. The way I look at it is that expectations are very high, but you use those expectations to polish your skills and improve as a cricketer. There is not much cricket at the moment in Pakistan, so the other advantage is that I am getting game-time. The standard of cricket is good in the Lancashire League and I am getting the opportunity to play mainly on bowling-friendly surfaces which are a rarity in Pakistan.


    PakPassion.net: On the surface you have taken non-selection for the series against Ireland and England on the chin, but inside you must be hurting?

    Fawad Alam:
    No, honestly, even inside me it's the same reaction. I have to be positive or there is no point playing cricket in future. If I keep thinking of my non-selection as a negative then nobody will get harmed other than myself. Selection matters are out of my hands, what is in my hands is the need to work hard and do my best. Scoring runs in every match is also out of my hands, but ensuring that I am fit, practising and ready and performing is in my hands and that is all I can do really. I have always felt that the harder you work and the more you practice, the better the player you become and that is a philosophy that I will continue to adhere to.


    PakPassion.net: A first-class average of over 55, many first-class hundreds and fifties, yet you are still not good enough for Pakistan. Seems strange doesn't it?

    Fawad Alam:
    Keep on trying is my motto and my objective is to keep on scoring runs for my region and for my department and then hope for the best. All I can do is to perform and do what is in my control. I just think about maintaining my standards and not letting my standards slip. In fact, my aim is always to improve my standards. Every year I think about improving and scoring runs whenever the chance comes and in whatever the situation is for the team. So let's see what happens in the future, who knows maybe one day another chance may come to wear my country's colours again.


    PakPassion.net: Was there much interaction between you and the coaching staff at the training camp in Lahore ahead of the Ireland and England tours?

    Fawad Alam:
    The atmosphere was fine and it was no different to any other camp. I was treated fine, the same way as the other players. It was enjoyable and at the same time it was hard work. I think the training camp was very good and well-structured in all areas. It helps when you are involved in such camps as it gives you an idea of what the current Pakistan coaches are expecting and what their priorities are. It was good to be involved in the camp and to be around the coaching staff like Mickey Arthur and Grant Flower and show them my skills and my levels of fitness.


    PakPassion.net: Come on, spill the beans, who have you upset in the corridors of power in Pakistan cricket?

    Fawad Alam:
    I'm not sure who I have upset, I don't think I've upset anyone as far as I am aware. All I am trying to focus on is to convince Allah and when Allah is convinced then everything will be fine for me.


    PakPassion.net: Some former players have said you haven't got the technique to bat in England. What's your response to that?

    Fawad Alam:
    They are entitled to their opinion, that's what they do. Maybe they know more about cricket than me as they are experts. It is their job to give opinions but my job is to play cricket and perform, wherever that is in the world and for whatever team that is. I've performed in different parts of the world and I don't think I have to go into the details of those performances. If you are selected to play for Pakistan, that is a huge honour and you are only picked if you are good enough and in my opinion that usually means that you are capable of playing around the world. As a cricketer, I don't look at which conditions suit me and which conditions don't, I just go out there and do my best and to the best of my ability.


    PakPassion.net: There were reports that when you were not selected for the tours of Ireland and England, Sarfaraz Ahmed came up to you and he was very upset. Is that accurate?

    Fawad Alam:
    Nothing like that happened. Everything was fine.


    PakPassion.net: Can you clarify what happened then, was he in tears?

    Fawad Alam:
    I don't know anything about that. If he said it, then it's best to ask him.


    PakPassion.net: Have you spoken with Sarfaraz Ahmed since the squad was announced?

    Fawad Alam:
    We had a discussion, it was nothing out of the ordinary. He just said to me don't give up and keep trying and keep working hard.


    PakPassion.net: No Younis Khan, no Misbah-ul-Haq and no Fawad Alam. This is one inexperienced squad currently in England isn't it?

    Fawad Alam:
    The Ireland win will have boosted the confidence of the boys and a win is always a positive sign especially in tough conditions. That win was very important for the squad and it will have given the boys a lot of confidence. Whoever has been selected, experienced or inexperienced needs our backing. This is Pakistan's team, it's not mine or anyone else's and as Pakistanis we should back our boys. My prayers are with the boys and I hope that they perform really well especially as two of our most experienced players aren't with the squad and I hope our players don't let us feel that we are missing both Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq. Experience comes with opportunities and you only gain experience by being in tough situations against the best opposition. But Pakistan also has some players in there who have been around for 8 or 9 years in international cricket and they have to deliver. The responsibility is with them and it's crucial for Pakistan that they deliver and carry the younger players forward with them. If the experienced guys are performing and showing the youngsters the way, then that makes it a lot easier for the younger guys.


    PakPassion.net: Do you believe that you are better than some of the players selected on the current tour?

    Fawad Alam:
    Look, whoever has been selected has my best wishes. If I was in the squad then I would want my countrymen to back me too. There is no point being bitter about my non-selection and I am backing them all to do well against England. It's important for Pakistan Test cricket that some of the younger guys perform and step out of the shadows. A good tour of England can only be a positive sign for Pakistan and for the young guys in the squad.


    PakPassion.net: Replacing Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan is easier said than done, isn't it?

    Fawad Alam:
    True, but we have to get on with it. They aren't coming back to international cricket but we have to remember at one time they too were inexperienced rookies and it took them time to settle into international cricket. So we have to be patient and we have to back the younger guys and allow them ample time to settle into international cricket and become the replacements for Misbah and Younis.


    PakPassion.net: Are you surprised at some of the players who have been selected in the current Test series?

    Fawad Alam:
    I'm not surprised because some of the players who have been picked have done well recently in the 50 over and 20 over formats and they have now been picked in the Test format. I think the selectors know best and can talk about this because one would hope they are planning for the future and have one eye on what lies ahead. There are a couple of new boys in there who have done well in domestic cricket too and deserve their chance and I hope they do well for Pakistan and for themselves.


    PakPassion.net: James Anderson and Stuart Broad must be licking their lips looking at the Pakistan batting line-up?

    Fawad Alam:
    Conditions will be important and at the moment, the weather has improved as have the wickets. As we saw in Ireland when the weather improved, the wicket got easier and if the weather is good in London, which it has been of late, that could play into Pakistan's hands and really make a difference. If the English bowlers don't get the conditions they want, then that could lead to some frustration and that could benefit Pakistan. Last time in England, Pakistan drew 2-2 and that proved that if conditions are good for batting then Pakistan are more than capable of holding their own against England.

    I've seen him bat live and don't fully appreciate the hype. I feel he deserved a go but pretending he is the saviour of Pakistani batting is just wrong. In some ways he is lucky as I think his technique would have been badly exposed by Anderson in these conditions and the Fawad hype machine would finally be broken.

    Lets be fair and accept that Imam has done well so far and is deserving of his spot.

    You dont get a First Class average of 55 by luck.

    If you were the selector of Australia, Steve Smith would never be selected either. The way he bats it looks like he would get out on zero facing the swinging ball, but he has a way to make it work.

    You can only judge by what a guy does. Its like saying, oh well done you got 100 out of 100 in your exam, but I wont recommend you for an award cause I don't like your hand writing.

    I have said it many times here but I feel he will be in for the Aus/NZ UAE games.

    In a way it might be a blessing in disguise as it will allow him to establish himself better in conditions he knows well.

    Your comment is appreciable. I agree fully.

    Some people ( Asad Shafiq and Umar Amin fans ) unnecessarily always draw the the matter of how Fawad's batting looks like.Chanderpaul ,Smith didn't have any pleasant batting style but they knew how to score how to stay on the crease and that's why they were so successful.Most importantly their respective country cricket board understood their value.But Pakistan cricket board coundnt. PCB invested on Asad,Umar Amin,Maqsood, Masood,Shehzad,Umar Akmal who seemingly had eye pleasing batting style but ended up very midiocre or poor career.

    I always think one has to sacrifice fawad Alam can be a good test player but his days are over. Thanks to misbah
    Better to give chance to youngsters Saad Ali , Usman and Harris.
    Or there will be another fawad/ misbah story and it will continue.

    Experienced players have to deliver: Fawad Alam

    KARACHI : Middle-order batsman Fawad Alam has stressed on the importance of experienced players leading the way in a relatively young Pakistan squad as the team gears up to face England.

    Due to the retirements of Misbahul Haq and Younus Khan, Alam believes that the rest of the senior contingent has to perform and carry the burden.

    “Pakistan have some players who have been around for eight or nine years in international cricket and they have to deliver. The responsibility is with them and it’s crucial for Pakistan that they deliver and carry the younger players forward with them. If the experienced guys are performing and showing the youngsters the way, then that makes it a lot easier for the younger guys,” said Alam according to PakPassion.net.
    When asked about his non-selection, the left-handed batsman is still looking at the brighter side of things despite being overlooked for the series against Ireland and England.

    Alam, who has scored over 10,000 runs in first-class cricket at an average of 55.37, is constantly knocking on the door of the selectors by piling loads of runs in domestic cricket but has failed to earn a spot in the national side.

    “I have to be positive or there is no point playing cricket in future. If I keep taking my non-selection negatively, then I will only be harming myself and no one else. Selection matters are out of my hands; what is in my hands is the need to work hard and do my best,” he said.

    Alam was not agitated by the comments made by some former cricketers regarding his technique and hinted towards how well he has performed in varying conditions over the course of his career.

    “They [critics] are entitled to their opinions; that’s what they do. Maybe they know more about cricket than me as they are experts. It is their job to give opinions but my job is to play cricket and perform, wherever that is in the world and for whatever team that is. I’ve performed in different parts of the world and I don’t think I have to go into the details of those performances” said the Karachi-born player.

    He added: “If you are selected to play for Pakistan, that is a huge honour and you are only picked if you are good enough and, in my opinion, that usually means that you are capable of playing around the world. As a cricketer, I don’t look at which conditions suit me and which conditions don’t, I just go out there and do my best and to the best of my ability.”

    Alam was pleased about Pakistan’s confidence boosting win over Ireland especially bearing in mind the stiff conditions they had to encounter.

    “The Ireland win will have boosted the confidence of the boys and a win is always a positive sign especially in tough conditions. That win was very important for the squad and it will have given the boys a lot of confidence,” said the 32-year-old.

    Mickey Arthur on Fawad's chances:


    PakPassion.net: Where do you see Fawad Alam in terms of international chances?

    Mickey Arthur: That’s a tough one. I guess the answer right now is that I am not sure. What I will say is that the doors are not closed on any player. But if we look at the way we are going with our Test line-up, if we have Azhar Ali and Imam-ul-Haq at the top, then Haris, Asad and Babar and we are only going for 5 batsmen then it's tough for anyone to get into that side. On top of that, the pressure on incumbents is big as well to maintain their position. What we are trying to do is to create a ‘depth chart’ so we know who the best players are for each position and who is the next deserving player for that same position which is something Inzamam and I will always discuss so we know where we are at. I will also say again that the door isn’t closed for anyone; everybody has an equal opportunity to play for Pakistan and we are very open-minded with that.

    Don't agree with this conception at all.A guy with highest first class average in history of Pakistan isn't best!!! Everybody in Pakistan associated with team selection are just ridiculous people.They have invested on a hack like Asad Shafiq instead of truely capable bat Fawad.Just ridiculous.No logic is suitable here behind this decision.

    First if all do you what a hack is? I have seen enough of fawad to know he's rubbish he can avergae 100+ buy the fact is he's awful can't play fast bowlers and just above average against spinners. Suad shakeel, Saad Ali are far better options then him if he was any good Mickey would have selected him but he's not.

Suad shakeel, Saad Ali are far better options then him if he was any good Mickey would have selected him but he's not.
    He is not a hack.He always scores at a reasonable rate.He is not Afridi,he is like Asif Mujtaba who likes to grind runs.He can hit boundaries in bad ball too and when necessary.. Pakistan need him in middle order in tests and ODIs.I don't think you have seen him bat.He is the most unlucky guy who hasn't got justice from his own cricket board.The amount of chances Asad and Azhar have got,if Fawad got same chances I am sure he would have been an ATG. Please don't talk too much too early about Saud and Saad who haven't played yet in few internationals yet.Fawad have better FC,List A and international records than both of them .No comparison.Micky isn't a person above all mistakes.He has made a mistake about Fawad, no doubt in my mind.

    Don't like his attitude in the interview. Even Misbah had better attitude when rejected - he wanted to burn his kit.

    Fawad is much too nice and agreeable for Mickey. He has a 57 average for crying out loud - he should have been making a big noise.

    I suggest he sell Ice cream instead.

    Our test championship itinerary has away tours against Australia, NZ, England and playing at home vs SL, , and South Africa.
    It’s fair to ask whether this itinerary justifies fawads selection in the test team

    No surprises that he isn't included in the central contract list, what a shame.

    Fawad Alam scored 141* of 390 balls, one of the best performers in Pakistan domestic constantly but can't find a spot in his most suitable format Tests.

    Doesn't have the spine to fight for himself. Always makes noises about "all I can do is perform."

    This lack of spine shows up when he bats in big games too.

    He should have moved to Ireland or UAE or something.
