Pakistan’s prolific batsman Fawad Alam, in an interview with Cricket Pakistan, said he felt honored to be able to score hundreds against five different nations in Test cricket.
The 35-year-old has scored centuries against New Zealand, South Africa, Zimbabwe and recently West Indies, three of them in foreign conditions, keeping aside the one against South Africa.
“I am really grateful to Allah [for my recent performances]. I always try to perform for my country. I always try to give performances that benefit the team. I hope I can keep performing the way I am currently. Scoring five centuries in five different countries is a thing of honour for me,” said Fawad.
“As a player you want to perform to the best of your abilities for your country. I will try to deliver and perform wherever I can for my country in the future as well,” he said.
The 35-year-old emphasized that his job was to play cricket and perform for his team.
“My job is to play cricket. If I start enjoying things that other people say or do, then my cricket will stop there. I am just thankful to Allah and nothing else. Everything is according to the will of Allah, and we have no power over anything. I just try to follow a straight path. Things happen in everyone’s career. Everyone has ups and downs. If you keep on the right path, then good things happen. If people are praising me then it is an honor for me,” he added.
