Pakistan Test batsman Fawad Alam scored his second Test hundred against the world Number 2 Test team New Zealand at the Bay Oval. Pakistan was chasing 373 runs, but they lose the wickets of their openers Shan Masood and Abid Ali without even a run on the scorecard. Alam came to bat after Tim Southee got his second wicket as Haris Sohail with Pakistan's score at 37 for three.

Yet, rather than going into his shell, Alam demonstrated nerves of steel. At the point when he came to bat, he had previous skipper Azhar Ali as his accomplice. Yet in the 40th over, Trent Boult got the wicket of Azhar Ali. Boult got his second wicket of the innings. With Pakistan already lose their four wickets, Alam neglected to go into his shell. Or maybe, he demonstrated nerves of steel and sewed together a stand of 165 runs with Mohammad Rizwan.

Fawad Alam's incomplete business for Pakistan

He took upwards of 149 balls to get to his fifty run mark. He achieved his century off 236 balls. Exactly when it appeared to be that he would convey Pakistan over the line, Neil Wagner took the wicket of him. Alam's knock was bound with 14 fours. The veteran got the well-suited help from Rizwan, who put his head down and piled up 60 runs off 191 balls with the assistance of six brilliant fours.

All things considered, it turned out to be his second Test ton after a gap of 4,188 days. Alam made his Test debut back in July 2009 against Sri Lanka. In the first innings, he got out to Angelo Mathews in the wake of scoring just 16 runs. In the second innings, the then youth crushed 168 runs off 259 balls and his knock was cut with 15 fours and one six.

Regrettably, his knock went to no end as the Lankans chased 171 in their fourth innings and won by seven wickets. Back in August, Alam played his fourth Test following a gap of 11 years. In his rebound Test against England at the Rose Bowl in Southampton, he showed a duck. Be that as it may, he has, well and really, had the option to offer some kind of reparation.
