Haroon Rashid was a Jekyll and Hyde batsman. On flat pitches he was one of the most handsome imaginable, pull-driving offspinners - especially England's in 1977-78 - to kingdom come, and cover-driving like Wally Hammond. On pitches where the ball moved around though, he was a different kind of Wally. He never got the hang of playing with bat and pad together, and scarcely made a run in England. Still he will be remembered for keeping Pakistan afloat when World Series Cricket took their very best players, for being one of the most hirsute of all cricketers ... and for being shot at when a Test selector.
