Sealed with a six, brilliant Pakistan Batsman Fawad Alam completes his centrality in the first test against South Africa at National Stadium, Karachi.

Pakistan middle-order batsman Fawad Alam on Wednesday scored his century on home soil against Proteas.

Fawad has joined Ravi Bopara of England as the only other batsman to have three Test centuries without a fifty.

Fawad came to bat when Pakistan were four down after a top-order collapse in the last session on day one of the Test.

The batsman helped the team gain back its confidence as he continued to bat all day long helping Pakistan take lead over Proteas.

Earlier today he also took over social media when he dropped down to the ground in a sweep shot.

After reeling at 33/4 on stumps day 1, Pakistan managed to recover courtesy a strong partnership between Fawad Alam and Azhar Ali.
