Profile

The youngest of the five Mohammad brothers, the softly spoken Sadiq was also the only left-hander, something he was encouraged to cultivate because the other four were right-handers. His natural right-handedness meant he was a strong - and wristy - off-side player, but he was a strong puller as well: he loved to take on the fast men. Like his more famous brothers, Hanif and Mushtaq, Sadiq was short and stocky. Some thought he owed his place in the team to his family connections, but his record, as an opener at a difficult time, stands up.
