Pakistanis Are Lambasting Inzamam-ul-Haq And The PCB On Not Selecting Fawad Alam For England Tour!


After the successful conclusion of the Pakistan Super League Season 3 and the West Indies’ tour of Pakistan in Karachi, the country’s cricket is said to be going on another level with the future tour of Ireland and England.

Pakistan are set to play 1 Test match against Ireland in Dublin, among other matches that are to be played in England against the hosts. The squad was yesterday announced by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), something which has not gone very well with the general public.


Even though there are many young and new recruits in the team, namely Fakhar, Saad Ali and Faheem Ashraf, the inclusion of one name and exclusion of the other has caused a huge controversy on social media. Yes we’re talking about Inam-ul-Haq and Fawad Alam.

Fawad, who performed brilliantly in the Quaid-e-Azam trophy and had a pretty decent average, was once again, rejected by the PCB. Instead, the inclusion of Inzamam-ul-Haq’s nephew, Inam-ul-Haq has been condemned on the basis of nepotism in the team, as Inzi the legend is Pakistan’s Chief Selector.

This is what Fawad Alam had said on him not being selected last year: “You shatter the confidence of players if you keep ignoring their performances. If you perform for your country and do well and then get dropped, well that is just confusing and demoralizing.”



People on Twitter have rallied to Fawad’s support, trending #JusticeForFawadAlam and stating their anger on the issue. Here’s what the masses have had to say:

Apart from rallying to Fawad Alam’s aide, people also targeted Inzamam-ul-Haq for selecting his nephew Inam-ul-Haq instead, this is what people said:

The Justice for Fawad Alam hashtag keeps bringing new mentions and people are not letting Inzamam and the PCB escape so lightly. They want answers for why Fawad wasn’t finalized after his name was initially proposed in the squad.
