After waiting for 128 months, Fawad Alam has finally made a comeback in the Test playing XI against England in Southampton.
His fans, who fought for him during the last decade, were over the moon after seeing Fawad’s name on the team’s line-up for second Test.
Here’s how they react to Fawad’s inclusion in the team and wished him best of luck for the match:

Last time Fawad Alam played a test match, Shoaib Akhtar & Mohammad Yousuf were still playing for Pakistan, Butt, Amir, Asif were yet to be involved in match fixing and Misbah was yet to take over captaincy.

It must be noted here that Fawad was dropped from the Test team despite scoring a 100 on his debut. He played his third and last Test back in 2009 against New Zealand.
Meanwhile, the left-handed batsman scored plenty of runs in domestic cricket to knock the doors of selectors in every regime but was often ignored. The 34-years-old cricketer has scored over 10,000 runs in First-Class at an average of 56.78 with 34 centuries and 60 half-centuries.
