In 12 Tests Pakistani offspinner Haseeb Ahsan took 27 wickets at an average close to 50. His best figures came at Chennai in 1960-61, when India piled up 539 and Ahsan took 84-19-202-6. He never bowled in a Test in England for fear that he would be no-balled for throwing, and was actually called against India in the first Test at Bombay in 1960-61. Ahsan returned to England as Pakistan's tour manager in 1987.
