Profile

This tall and gangling fast medium bower had a tendency to invoke a very lively pace from most pitches which made his natural outswinger a nightmare for most batsman. Competing against great bowlers of the time he was usually underestimated. He made headlines by breaking the arm of English captain Mike Brearley during a one day match in Karachi. His finest hour came against India in Delhi in 1979/80 when he demolished them on a placid wicket by taking 8/69 with devastating penetration. ( Contributed by Umair Tariq and Abdul Rehman BSc.
