Fawad had performed well and scored a lot of runs before experiencing a rough patch of form
Former interim chief selector Shahid Afridi has expressed surprise at the dropping of middle order batsman Fawad Alam from the Test team.
He acknowledged that Fawad had performed well and scored a lot of runs before experiencing a rough patch of form.

“Fawad Alam’s performance has been very good before. Dropping him is a surprising decision,” Afridi said.
Despite being dropped from the side, Fawad had a successful run in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, where he scored 706 runs in 10 matches for Sindh, including two centuries and five fifties, at an average of 64.18.
However, Afridi feels that the veteran batsman should not have been dropped in the first place, given the stability he brought to the Test side when he was in form.
