Profile

A big, burly Punjabi, Sarfraz formed a potent partnership with Imran Khan, and was one of the pioneers of reverse-swing. His most prolific spell came in the Melbourne Test of 1978-79, but he kept going admirably on some heartless Test pitches in Pakistan. After retirement he became an outspoken MP and cricket commentator.
