Fawad Alam hits heroic century to put Pakistan on top in first test

Pakistani batsman Fawad Alam has earned praise for his stellar knock against South Africa, scoring a century when the green shirts were under pressure.

Pakistan were four wickets down for 33 when Fawad Alam came to the green shirts’ rescue. He scored a century on a pitch that offered turn to spinners and provided a deceptive low bounce for fast bowlers, where Rabada in particular, thrived.

However, his classy strokes, mental grit and ability to survive on a tricky pitch earned him a much-needed century. Alam scored it in brilliant fashing, advancing on to the crease and smashing the spinner for a six to reach his first hundred on home soil.
