#PAKvsSA: Fawad Alam’s Brilliant Century Saves the Day for Pakistan

Fawad Alam century saved the day for Pakistan against South Africa on the second day of the First Test at the National Stadium, Karachi,

Pakistan batting lineup was reduced to 33/4, at the end of Day 1 of the Karachi Test, but bounced back on the 2nd Day with Fawad Alam’s efforts.

Alam’s brilliant match-defining hundred, the third Test century, helped the home side end the day at 308/8, a lead of 88, against South Africa.


Alam’s century formed the bedrock of Pakistan’s efforts on the second day, as he put on sizeable partnerships with Azhar Ali, Mohammad Rizwan, and Faheem Ashraf to ensure Pakistan keep hold at the match that seems to be going out of hands at the end of the first day.

The home side was under pressure at 27 for 4, but Fawad’s experience stood tall against South Africa and he brought up a hundred from 220 balls including 8 fours and 2 sixes.

The batting line made Kagiso Rabada wait for his 200th Test wicket for another day at least.

Here is how social media reacts to Fawad Alam’s brilliant knock today as PCB neglected him to include in the playing eleven for the past 11 years.
