Khalid Wazir was an aggressive right-hand batsman, a medium-pace bowler, and a sound fielder. An 18-year-old student, he was a surprise choice for the 1954 England tour, playing in two of the Tests as a specialist batsman without any success. On the tour he scored 253 runs at 16.86 and took nine wickets at 62.66. He didn't play first-class cricket after returning to Pakistan.
