KARACHI: Test cricketer Fawad Alam has on Wednesday finally stated that ‘personal dislike’ behind his exclusion from national cricket team.

While addressing a presser, Fawad said “Yes [personal] liking/disliking is there and it’s obvious as well. I don’t have to say anything about that,” Fawad replied when asked if he’s out of the Pakistan setup for non-cricketing reasons.

Fawad said that he is also looking to get the answers. Maybe if he get the answer then he will try to overcome that thing [but then] every year or two there’s a new reason to drop him.

“Sometimes it becomes so difficult when a player has been neglected but I have to keep myself motivated because cricket is my bread and butter. Besides, what else would I do if I quit cricket?”

He added “Like any player, my job is to perform and keep on performing. A player who is dropped from the national team tries to perform in domestic circuit to make his comeback. Let’s see when I get my chance.”

It is pertinent to mention here that Fawad Alam has 11,830 runs to his name in 162 first class matches.
