LAHORE: Test captain Azhar Ali has lauded gritty batsman Fawad Alam for his determination and explained why the southpaw did not get any matches in the series against Sri Lanka last year despite being in the squad.

“Fawad Alam is a determined player. He is an example for youngsters. Despite being out of the team for so long, he continued his hard work and eventually made his way back into the team. He is currently part of our team and whenever he gets an opportunity, I am sure he will make it count and perform,” Azhar was quoted by Geo News.

The long and oft-ignored left-hander, after spending years in domestic cricket doldrums, was finally picked when the islanders visited these shores late last year. However, much to his fans' agony, he sat in the dugout and was again deprived of any action.
