Middle order batsman Fawad Alam returned to the national team after a gap of 11 years and he was part of the last two Test matches against England.

While the domestic stalwart was unable to produce the same magic at international level on his comeback, he refused to accept that he was overwhelmed by the pressure.

“There is always some sort of pressure whenever you step out on the field, even if it’s a club game, but it does not mean that I was completely overwhelmed by it,” said Alam.

He showed great disappointment on his batting failures in the last two matches against England and stated that it was part and parcel of the game. 

“It was unfortunate that I was not able to perform well but that’s part and parcel of the game as you can’t always go out and score runs.” Alam added. 

According to Fawad, playing for Pakistan after a gap of more than a decade was the most satisfying feeling for him. 

“I must say it was a great experience and playing for Pakistan once again felt more satisfying as compared to my debut match. It was a great feeling to represent my country after a gap of more than 10 years,” he added.

The next major assignment of the Men in Green is in New Zealand and the little left-hander is hopeful of retaining his place for that tour. 

“I know that my performance was not extraordinary but I’m still positive about the future. I’m hopeful that I will be part of the team for New Zealand tour.” he said.
