One of three brothers to play - and keep wickets - for Pakistan, Adnan is the best pure wicketkeeper of the trio; he replaced elder brother Kamran in the Test side when making his debut in October 2010 and he did nothing thereafter to dispel that assessment.
Had it not been for a selection miscommunication back in 2004, Adnan may have played for Pakistan much earlier and longer. Both Kamran and Adnan were called up by accident for a national camp before a tri-series tournament and after much confusion over who was wanted, Kamran was kept. The late Bob Woolmer, Pakistan's coach at the time, felt Adnan to be the best wicketkeeper in the country.
Consistent domestic success, however, and the continuing errors of Kamran kept him in the frame. Ultimately it took the flight of Zulqarnain Haider for him to earn a Test debut, but polished performances over four Tests justified the pick. In his fourth Test, against New Zealand in Wellington in January 2011, he took eight catches, but was then surprisingly dropped from the Test side, without explanation. He returned to the Test side later that year, hoping to get a longer run as specialist wicketkeeper.
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
