“Jamshed was an 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.

The former leg-spinner expressed happiness on coming back to the city where he has very good memories. “I was a member of the Pakistan team when we came here in 1960-61. We had lost six quick wickets for 120-odd runs before myself and Mustaq Mohammad put on 100-odd run partnership,” said Alam.
