Fawad Alam, Pakistan Batsmen
Fawad Alam of Pakistan broke the record for the fastest Asian cricketer to score five Test centuries in the shortest 22 innings. Against the West Indies, Alam scored an unbeaten 124.In a match marred by rain at Sabina Park in Kingston, Alam was forced to retire hurt at 76* on day one with what appeared to be a cramp in his left leg, only to return at the WIndies with a resolute innings, reaching an unbroken 124 after having recovered thanks to the rain interruption.
The 35-year-old southpaw's outstanding performance placed Pakistan in perfect control of the game, as the Asian giants declared at 302-9 on day three. Alam celebrated his tonne against the Windies in Jamaica with a fist-bump and a sajdah, making up for all the lost hundreds in a hurry.With four centuries in the last eight months since returning to Test cricket, Alam has created headlines across the world by becoming the fastest Asian batsman to reach five international Test tonnes in only his 13th Test for Pakistan after an 11-year absence.After being pulled from the lineup after only three matches, he has scored all five of his hundreds in just eight Tests (including his century on debut).
Vijay Hazare - 26 innings
Sunil Gavaskar - 25 innings
Sourav Ganguly - 25 innings
Cheteshwar Pujara - 24 innings
Fawad Alam - 22 innings
Alam has proven his doubters wrong time and time again with his exceptional batsmanship in the twilight of his career, which has been tarnished by his inability to play for his country due to unfair criticism from the PCB, despite his consistent performances in the domestic season each year.Since his return to the team after eleven years in red-ball cricket, only England captain Joe Root (5) has scored more hundreds than Alam (4).On his YouTube channel, Pakistan icon Shoaib Akhtar praised Alam's efforts, saying:"He sincerely plays for Pakistan despite being out of the side for 11 years. Hats off to him. Fawad Alam is a genius."The outcome of the Test in Kingston will be interesting to watch, as the Windies lead the two-match series 1-0 after winning a dramatic first Test by one wicket.
