Fawad Alam Biography


Fawad Alam was born on 8 October 1985 in the Karachi district of Pakistan. He is a left-handed batsman and a left arm slow orthodox bowler who plays for Pakistan national team, National Bank of Pakistan and Karachi Blues.


Background


Fawad is the son of cricketer Tariq Alam, who has had a long stint with the first-class cricket. Fawad was thus interested in cricket since childhood. He began his career playing for Pakistan Customs and Karachi.


Debut


Fawad made his List-A debut against Khan Research Labs on 21 December 2003, playing for Pakistan Customs. His first-class career came the next day against the same team in Karachi. Fawad played well and was included in the squad for the 2006 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, which the Pakistan team won.


He played his first ODI match against Sri Lanka at Abu Dhabi on 22 May 2007. A few months later, he also made his T20I debut against Kenya at Nairobi on 4 September 2007.


His Test debut came a couple of years later on 12 July 2009 against Sri Lanka at Colombo. He scored a majestic 168 in the second innings, becoming the first Pakistani player to score a century on debut in an away Test series.


Rise to Glory


Fawad’s biggest break came in the 2006-07 season where he caught eyes with excellent performances across formats. His knocks in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy bagged him various awards including Man of the Final, Man of the Series, Best Batsman and Best Bowler.

Failing to impress in his international debuts, Alam was dropped from the national squad for three and a half years. After his hiatus, Fawad was selected for Pakistan Academy's tour of Africa in September-October 2008. He scored 302 not out in a four-day game against Kenya and was the highest run getter.


The 2014 Asia Cup held in Bangladesh saw Fawad being called up to the national squad. In his first match against the hosts, he scored a 74 ball 70 to chase a target of 326. His form continued as he hit his maiden ODI century, hitting 114* against Sri Lanka in the final. Unfortunately, his side lost the match and finished runners up in the tournament.
