While the 'exposed' trends are usually used to bring forward a celebrity's misdoings, the Fawad Alam trend questions the way the middle-order batsman has been treated by the Pakistan Cricket Board's selection committee. The Karachi-born cricketer is part of an elite group of players who scored more than 150 runs on their Test debut but has only three Tests to his name. The 33-year-old has represented Pakistan in 38 ODIs and amassed 966 runs at an average of 40.25 with high score of an unbeaten 114. Fawad made 345 runs in eight ODIs at an average of 69 in 2014—only Kane Williamson and AB de Villiers scored more at a better average—but was dropped for the 2015 World Cup that began in February of that year. The batsman is a veteran in first-class cricketer with 11,441 runs to his name with high score of 296 at an average of 56.08, which is the highest for any Pakistani cricketer in history.
