Saleem Elahi's international career started with a bang when, brought into Pakistan's one-day team without having played a single first-class match, he slammed an unbeaten 102 on debut, against Sri Lanka at Gujranwala in 1995-96. Since then, Elahi has flitted in and out of the national team, and has been far more successful in the one-dayers, where his stand-and-deliver style has fetched him plenty of success -on the tours to Zimbabwe and South Africa in 2002-03, he struck three centuries in four matches. He was among a crop of players dropped after Pakistan's poor display in the World Cup, but spent only a few months in the wilderness before coming back in the ODI line-up. A Test berth, however, has proved more elusive. He hasn't found one since 2002-03, and has only one half-century in 13 matches.
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
