Profile

Although Najaf has been playing first-class cricket for seven years, it wasn't until the 2004-05 season when he grabbed over 60 wickets on the local circuit that he got noticed. The tall and well-built Najaf, one of the handful left-arm pacers that Pakistan has produced since the retirement of Wasim Akram, had been on the verge of international selection ever since.
