Shafqat Rana was a very good right-handed batsman, strong on the drive and cut, who was not given that many opportunities in a broken career in which he played five Tests in six years. The highlight was an appearance against New Zealand in 1969-70 when he made a career-best 95, and a total of 167 runs, in the third Test at Lahore, and 65 at Dhaka where rioting caused the abandonment of the game.
