Mohsin Khan was not alone in being a Pakistani who was handsome both in appearance and in batting. But he could claim that as an opening batsman he came closer than any of his countrymen has done to mastering the extra bounce of Australian pitches: in successive Tests in 1983-84 he scored 149 at Adelaide and 153 at Melbourne. Before then he had also become the first Pakistani to make a double-hundred in a Test at Lord's, so it was quite a loss when he married an Indian actress, moved to Bombay and dabbled in film acting himself. He had it in him to be a star of the crease if not the screen.
After his playing days, Mohsin was appointed Pakistan's chief selector in March 2010 and was also involved in the PCB's fast-track coaching programme at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore, where he coached batsmen. When Waqar Younis stepped down as as Pakistan coach following the 2011 tour of Zimbabwe, Mohsin doubled up as interim national coach.
