Profile

A tall fast bowler, Saleem Jaffar made an impression from the off. He took 5 for 11 on his first-class debut in 1983-84, and in 1985-86 finished the season with 80 wickets at 19. His international call-up was no surprise, and he made both Test and ODI debuts against West Indies that season. His tour of England in 1987 was ended by injury, and when he returned for the World Cup later that year he suffered a terrible mauling by Australia. Against England at Karachi in 1987-88 he took five wickets , winning selection for the tour of the Caribbean that followed. That was followed by his best outing, against New Zealand at Wellington in 1988-89, where he took match figures of 8 for 134, including his only Test five-for. That was the real issue - he wan't penetrative enough - and his career fizzled out.
