Profile

After Wasim Bari, a worthy successor was found in the form of Saleem Yousuf who not only proved himself to be an agile and adept wicket-keeper but also strengthened Pakistan's batting lower down the order through his powerful stroke play. He proved his worth behind the wickets on innumerable occasions with athletic catches and sharp stumpings. He also chipped in with useful innings in both forms of the game to guide Pakistan to numerous victories. One of his most memorable innings was a gritty innings in the match against West Indies in the World Cup 1987 which turned certain defeat into victory for Pakistan.
