Profile

There is almost no role in a cricket side that Shoaib Malik hasn't filled, so much so that over ten years into his career, nobody is sure what his precise and best role is.

Timeline
    • October 14, 1999
      Beginning at No. 9
      • Fails to get a chance to bat on his debut ODI, but picks up the wickets of Sherwin Campbell and the dangerous Ricardo Powell in the Coca Cola Champions Trophy against West Indies in Sharjah.
    • February 14, 1999
      Allrounder you say?
      • Advances his credentials as an allrounder with a dazzling unbeaten 111 against West Indies yet again in Sharjah. His maiden hundred off 130 balls also earns him his first Man-of-the-Match award.
    • May 11, 2001
      Throwing a spanner
      • The PCB's group of bowling advisors examines Malik's action after the ICC sends a tape for review. The board clears his offbreaks, but recommends training with former spinner and umpire Mohammad Nazir (jnr) with regard to the doosra. He would be reported once again in October 2004 and would undergo surgery in May 2006 as the kink had resulted from an accident suffered two years ago.
