  • 'Chance pe Stance': Twitter world erupts over 'weirdest' scenes at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.

  • Cricket fanatics took a hilarious dig at Alam's unique stance.

Left-handed batsman Fawad Alam and his unorthodox batting stance were back in red-ball cricket on the opening day of the second Test match between England and Pakistan at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.


And needless to say, cricket fanatics were not ready for what they saw.

Fawad was picked for his first Test in 11 years on Thursday as Pakistan included him in the playing XI at the expense of all-rounder Shadab Khan.


Coming in at No.6 with his side reeling at 117-4, Fawad stunned fans and commentators with an utterly open batting stance.

In shades of West Indies’ veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fawad was facing front-on to the bowler as he waited for the ball, before turning side-on when it was delivered.

Unfortunately, Fawad’s stay at the crease only lasted for four balls, but not before the fans took to Twitter to take a hilariously dig at his unique stance.


Facing Chris Woakes, Fawad blocked the first ball, left the next, played and missed the third, and was given out lbw on the fourth delivery.

Here’s how Twitterati trolled Fawad:
