Iconic Pakistan spinner Mushtaq Ahmed has heaped praise on batsman Fawad Alam, saying not many players can play like how he did in the first Test against South Africa.

Fawad was named Man of the Match for his knock of 109, which came off 245 balls and included nine boundaries and two sixes.

The 35-year-old came in when Pakistan were reeling at 27/4 in their first innings and Mushtaq admitted that Fawad showed incredible grit and determination to succeed under immense pressure.

“This was a very important win for the team and the management as it [helped] improve their confidence,” Mushtaq told Cricket Pakistan.

“Fawad Alam played a gutsy knock and I can’t recall many players playing such an innings under pressure.”

Pakistan won the first Test in Karachi by seven wickets and will now be looking to complete a 2-0 series whitewash in the second Test, which gets underway on Thursday in Rawalpindi.
