Profile

An attractive right-hand batsman and a natural stroke-maker in a class of his own, he filled either the opening slot or at the No. 3 position for Pakistan. He possessed a handsome, upright style and was a vigorous driver and cutter of the ball. Though performing brilliantly on the first-class scene he failed to live up to his potential in international cricket and played in only six Tests. He scored a mammoth 51 centuries in domestic cricket and is one of the four Pakistanis to have a first-class career average of more than 50. He was also an occasional medium-pace bowler.
