Alam hit a century in Sri Lanka in 2009, but was dropped after just two more Tests and had to wait more than a decade for his next opportunity, which came last year in England.
Meanwhile, Shaheens reached 374-6 at the end of the day, thanks to Fawad’s unbeaten 108 and opener Imran Butt’s patient 91 earlier in the day, giving them a 198-run lead over Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club.
