Fawad Alam denies report of retirement

Experienced Pakistani cricketer, Fawad Alam, has quashed the ongoing retirement speculations and reiterated his unwavering dedication to international cricket while being part of the national squad.

In a recent interview, the proficient left-handed batsman dismissed any rumors concerning his departure from the Pakistan national cricket team in favor of relocating to the United States of America (USA).

Just yesterday, media reports emerged suggesting that the 37-year-old player had contemplated a transition to the United States, envisioning a fresh chapter in his cricketing career on American soil.

It was brought to light that the cricketer hailing from Karachi was in the process of preparing to join the ranks of the Minor League Cricket (MLC) T20 as a prominent figure, set to play a pivotal role for the Chicago Kingsmen team.

It’s noteworthy to mention that Fawad Alam’s most recent appearance for the national team was during the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka in 2022, resulting in a draw.

Subsequently, the middle-order batsman found himself excluded from the lineup during the three-match Test series against England and the two-match Test series against New Zealand.

Commenting on his absence from the team, Mohammad Wasim provided an explanation, stating, “His performance in the past three series was not up to par, which led us to select Saud Shakeel.”

Fawad Alam’s record includes 19 Test matches, where he accumulated 1,011 runs with an average of 38.88 and a strike rate of 46.58. This tally includes an impressive count of five centuries and two half-centuries.
