A chequered career for Aamer Malik. He is one of only three men to score a century in both innings of his first-class debut (Arthur Morris and Nari Contractor are the others), he made a seven-hour unbeaten 98 in his second Test, made back-to-back hundreds against India in 1989-90, took a Test stumping as stand-in keeper (Richie Richardson), took one Test wicket (Australia's Peter Taylor - batting at No. 2) and was recalled after a four-year absence to face Australia in 1994-95. He helped save the second Test with a crucial second-innings 65 ... and was dropped, this time for good.
