The ousted Pakistani cricketer Fawad Alam has come up with a unique batting stance which has surprised everyone around in the cricketing fraternity. In the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, the first-class cricket in Pakistan, the cricketer displayed a hilarious stance similar to the legend of West Indies Shivnarine Chanderpaul. Fawad though could not muster runs with his new stance and was dismissed early.
Fawad is leading Sui Southern Gas Corporation side in the tournament and is striving hard to make a comeback in the national side. He has captained the team well and they are at the top of the points table in the pool A of the competition. However, Fawad himself has been unable to lead the team from the front and has only scored 225 runs in 8 innings at a mediocre average of 32.14. Though he has smashed a century and a half-century, he has lacked consistency and would love to come back in form soon.
What about his batting stance?
The world cricket has already seen a completely different batting stance from Chanderpaul. But Fawad Alam now has the weirdest of stances with his feet pointing nowhere. In the game against Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited (SNGPL), he was found leaving all his three wickets open for a bowler to aim. Though he went on to play at the delivery way outside his off-stump off the bowling of Hussain Talat and edged it to the gully fielder Ali Waqas on just 10.
His team lost their first match of the season against SNGPL by eight wickets as the match winded up in just two days on Sunday. Batting first Alam led side was bowled out for just 129 in 40 odd overs. In reply, SNGPL too could only muster 144 and took a mere 5 run lead. However, Sui Southern side fared even worse in their second attempt and were skittled out for a paltry total of 74. The required target was chased down without much fuss by SNGPL and won the match handsomely by eight wickets.
