Fawad Ahmed joins Aussie Team in Pakistan as a filming consultant

Fawad Ahmed, Australian-Pakistani diver is visiting his hometown as an Australian spinning consultant in their first historic visit to Pakistan in 24 years.

The striker has played 10 first-class matches in Pakistan. A decade ago, while living in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, he became involved with a local NGO that advocates for women’s education. The Taliban threatened him for it and made him flee to Australia in 2010 as an asylum seeker.

He waited to get his Australian citizenship while working in a warehouse and playing for the University of Melbourne club. After being granted citizenship in 2013, Fawad played five international matches for Australia.

Fawad will consult with the team on the Test three series and the whiteball games starting in Rawalpindi on Friday. Team Aussi does not have a regular subcontinental cameraman Sridharan Sriram as he was unable to secure a visa for the Pakistan tour.

Sriram played eight one-day international matches for India between 2000 and 2004 and has been with Australia on the Asia tour since 2016.

Sriram’s absence paved the way for Fawad, 40, to represent the Aussi team as their turnaround consultant.

Fawad is in Pakistan and is playing for Lahore Qalandars, replacing Afghanistan Rashid Khan. His team won the final against Multan Sultans by 42 runs.

As of 2019, he played for the PSL and represented three brands while playing 23 games.

After arriving in Islamabad, Australian captain Pat Cummins told reporters: “It would be great to have ‘Fuzzy’ back in the team. I haven’t actually seen him in a few years so it would be nice to catch up. ”

“He has a lot of experience in Pakistan, he knows the locations quite well so it will be really helpful.”

In an exclusive interview with Geo Super, he said: “This is a really good thing for Pakistan and even for cricket. When I talk to people back home, team members or from the support staff or people at Cricket Australia, I would say, I ask them to ‘do it for the game itself. Let’s do it for cricket. ‘ So hopefully this will be a revival of Test cricket in Pakistan.
