We at Clitheroe Cricket Club are delighted to announce the signing of Fawad Alam as our professional for the 2017 Lancashire League season.
Fawad is a left-hand batsmen whose first-class average of 56.51 ranks him in the top 20 of all time! As a Pakistan international, he averages over 40 in both long and short forms of the game. In his international career Fawad has scored ODI 50's against England, South Africa, and Australia, as well as ODI and Test Match 100's versus Sri Lanka. He also bowls handy left arm spin (with a T20 international best of 3 for 7) and is an excellent fielder.
1st team skipper Paul Gaskell commented "we look forward to welcoming Fawad to the club and him being part of our exciting journey into the Lancashire League. The Lancashire League have a proud history of top-class professionals and Fawad's credentials certainly put him in that bracket".
New chairlady Helen Hewitt also enthused "We are really excited to welcome someone of Fawad's cricketing pedigree to Clitheroe. We hope that his involvement on the field and within training will have a positive impact on our junior and senior cricketers, and the club as a whole".
