Pakistan is lucky to have Nasir Jamshed: Intikhab Alam

Former Pakistan cricket captain Intikhab Alam on Thursday heaped lavish praise on compatriot Nasir Jamshed, who struck a masterly century in the second One-Day International (ODI) against India at the Eden Gardens here.

“Jamshed was a injury prone guy but is an exceptional talent. I am really very pleased with him. We are very lucky to have him in the team. It is good to see him fulfilling the expectations that we all have from him,” said Alam as the Pakistani opener played some classy shots in the match.

Jamshed scored 106 off 124 balls before getting out to Ravinder Jadeja. This was his second century of the series and the third consecutive three-figure knock against India.

Alam, Pakistan’s first ODI captain, is among the several former captains from his country and India who have been invited by the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) for a felicitation programme to commemorate the 25th year of 50 overs cricket at the hallowed stadium. Read more
