My mother had said that today you will definitely score a Century

KINGSTON: Fawad Alam, the middle order batsman of the national team, said that his mother had said that in the second match against West Indies, you will score a century.

Fawad Alam scored 124 in the first innings of the second Test against the West Indies and remained unbeaten while the national team declared their first innings at 302 for nine.

National batsman Fawad Alam, who scored a century on the third day of the Kingston Test against the West Indies, said that our goal is to get the West Indies out as soon as possible.

Referring to his century, Fawad Alam said, “I name today’s innings after my parents.”

Speaking about the tough times, Alam mentioned it was his father who helped him get through life’s ups and downs.

“Walid Saab (father) told me to go and raise your bat once in West Indies as well. My motivation and inspiration has been my Walid Saab. He himself was a cricketer.”

“That makes a lot of difference. Ups and downs happen in everyone’s career. He has gone through that himself. He always motivated me. He told me to keep performing, to do whatever is there in your hands,” Alam added.
