“I don’t think like that (10 years have been wasted) because If I would, the number of runs I made in domestic cricket and piled up records couldn’t have been possible,” he added.
On the other hand, Fawad praised team management for awarding him the opportunities after he failed in two innings in England.
“Team management encouraged and believed in my potential. They are supporting me and that confidence has allowed me to do well in the middle. Misbah Bhai said that I know you will do it and I have full faith in you.” he added.
