Pakistan head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq has lavished praise on veteran batsman Fawad Alam, and said people can learn from his “hard work, perseverance and dedication”.
Misbah’s comments come after Fawad was recalled to Pakistan’s Test squad for the two-match series against Sri Lanka.
The 34-year-old, who has not played Test cricket since 2009, has been in red-hot form in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, where he has scored 781 runs in 10 matches for Sindh, which includes four centuries and two fifties, at an average of 71.
Misbah"Congratulations to Fawad Alam. His selection's a reward for his continued hard work, perseverance & dedication. His selection isn't only a lesson to emerging players but also a testament of our policy of valuing domestic cricket & rewarding consistent performers" #Cricket
