Profile

With a steady, angular approach between umpire and stumps, and a low trajectory that pushed the ball through, Iqbal Qasim was a miserly but penetrative left-arm spinner. Among slow bowlers, only Abdul has taken more Test wickets for Pakistan. A short man, he was more concerned with accuracy than flight, rarely going for much more than two an over, but he was a regular for over a decade. His batting was less reliable, but his close fielding was occasionally spectacular.
