Profile

Pakistan offspinner Miran Bux's main claim to fame is that he was the second-oldest debutant in Test history. He was 47 years 275 days when, in his last season of first-class cricket in 1954-55, he was called up against India at Lahore. It was a short-lived experiment - he took only two wickets in his two Tests - but Miran did at least end with a first-class bowling average of 19.
