Pakistan batsman Fawad Alam has said his century in the first Test against South Africa was extremely important “because the team needed it”.

The men in green were struggling at 27/4 in their first innings before Fawad came in and scored a superb 109, which came off 245 balls and included nine boundaries and two sixes.

Fawad ended up being named Man of the Match as Pakistan won the first Test by seven wickets.

“It was an important hundred at that stage because the team needed it. We were [27/4] so we needed to bat long in [the] first innings so that the second innings [was] easy. Pressure is always there in international cricket, especially when playing as a comeback player, there’s pressure,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

The second Test will begin in Rawalpindi on February 4.
