In a Lancashire League match between Clitheroe Cricket Club 1st XI and Colne Cricket Club first XI, the former’s one-down batsman Fawad Alam got out in the most unlikely manner “dismissed timed out”. Fawad was so frustrated as a result that supposedly smashed the glass pane of the dressing room.
Clitheroe CC lost its first wicket of opener Thomas Lord for 19 runs and immediately lost another as the next batsman Pakistan’s Fawad Alam took more than the designated time to come out on the field. The umpires waited for the stipulated time and then adjudged him “timed ou”.
A fan, who was there to watch the game posted the picture of a broken dressing room window on Twitter. Without taking any name, the fan said how the “pro” of Clitheroe CC team smashed the window after getting timed out.
Here’s the tweet:

Fawad Alam in Clitheroe CC
Fawad was signed up by the Clitheroe Cricket Club earlier this year for playing as their overseas professional player in the Lancashire League. The Pakistani batsman had already been a part of the squad and represented the domestic club team in the previous edition of the league.
In the 2017 season of Lancashire League, Clitheroe CC was the champion and Fawad played an important role there. So when he was offered to come back during the 2018 season of the league by Clitheroe CC, he readily agreed to it, especially after being continuously overlooked by the national selectors.
Alam’s snubbing from the Pakistan team has been quite a topic as the chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq was under severe criticism for the decision.
However, his unique and early dismissal in the Friday match did not stand in the way of his team winning it. Chasing Colne CC’s total of 97, captain Jack Dewhurst was the highest scorer with 35 runs (unbeaten). He took the team to victory with 6 wickets to spare.
