Pakistan top order batsman Fawad Alam has rubbished the rumors that he has been involved in fixing, which is why he was not selected for the upcoming tour of Ireland and England.
“I think I don’t need to explain myself, as I have done nothing wrong. My entire cricket career has been clean, committing fixing is one thing I cannot even think about it,” said Alam, while talking to local media. “If there were such issues, I would not have been playing in domestic circuit like a lot of players who are out of domestic cricket as well,” he added.
Alam has not been selected in the 16-men squad, which didn’t sit well with the cricket fans as they have called for justice for the domestic cricket superstar. the top order batsman remains one of the star performers at domestic level for quite some time added with maintaining extraordinary fitness levels, remained unsuccessful in grabbing a place for the Ireland and England tour, despite being a hot favorite.
Pakistan cricket chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq, has announced a 16-member squad for the upcoming tour of Ireland and England, featuring five uncapped players including nephew Imam-ul-Haq.
Meanwhile, Pakistan, under the leadership of skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, will play against Ireland, which will be their first-ever Test against Pakistan from May 11 to May 15 in Dublin. Pakistan will then play two Tests against England at Lord’s from May 24 to May 28 and Headingley from June 1 to June 5.
