Cricketer Fawad Alam’s mother passes away
KARACHI: (Web Desk) Pakistan Test cricketer and batsman Fawad Alam’s mother died at the age of 63 in Karachi.

Fawad Alam said his mother was seriously ill for a few months. Her funeral prayers will be offered on Saturday (July 6) after Maghrib prayers in Falcon City, family sources said.

Fawad Alam started his international career for Pakistan in May 2007. He was surprisingly overlooked for selection in Pakistan’s Test cricket team for more than a decade, despite scoring impressive runs in domestic first-class matches.

After more than 10 years of not playing international cricket for Pakistan, he returned to Test cricket against England in August 2020.

In terms of career batting average, Fawad is among the top 50 batsmen of all time in first-class cricket. He is the only Pakistani on this list.

Born in Karachi, Fawad plays primarily as a left-handed batsman. He also bowls the left-handed orthodox slow ball.
