Fawad Alam benched after the surprise inclusion in the Pakistan vs. Srilanka test series squad. Fawad made the cut to test series after 10 years.
The fans were excited to see Fawad play after a gap of a decade but unfortunately, the Karachi based player was benched on the first day of the 3-day test match and Haris Sohail was included in the team.
This sudden dropping of a star player who performed 1200+ runs with 30+ centuries in his overall career till today. Fawad was replaced by Haris Sohail.
After the opening of today’s test match friends were fuming about the benching of Fawad and they started venting their disappointment on Twitter.
This one is seriously disappointed!
You need to be useless like Shan Masood to be in. Your 12000+ runs with 30+ centuries don't matter.
We're really sorry Fawad Alam 💔#PAKvsSL

The question is valid
If you didn’t wanted to play Fawad Alam when he is in terrific form then what’s the point of selecting him ? The never ending bias continues @captainmisbahpk @TheRealPCB @siasatpk @wasimakramlive @iramizraja

He has reservation about chief selector/chief coach Mishbah
According to some sources Head Coach Misbah is not happy with the decision of Chief Selector Misbah to select Fawad Alam, so the Head Coach Misbah in consultation with Batting Coach Misbah has decided to bench Fawad Alam for First Test match at Pindi.#PAKvsSL#CricketComesHome

And his predictions were on Point

Even Indian fans are not happy about this decision
I have a question, why there is no spinner, why there is 4 pacers, why fawad alam not playing, why haris sohail playing
Pakistan need to earn 120 points. #PAKvsSL

As per the cricket experts, there are now bleak chances for Pakistan to win the first test match of the series as the squad has no spinner and a good batting line. Let’s hope the players give their best as the nation is disappointed after a below-average performance by the team on Australia’s tour.
