Profile

Mohammad Farooq was a tireless and genuinely fast bowler whose career was all too short - he was also an entertaining and aggressive late-order batsman. He made his debut in the first Test against India in 1960-61, taking 4 for 139, including the wickets of Pankaj Roy and Abbas Ali Baig in his second over, and although dropped was recalled for the final Test where he again went for a hundred, ending with 2 for 101. He toured England in 1962, taking 33 wickets in eight matches, including 4 for 70 in the second Test at Lord's, but broke down and had to be sent home. He returned against New Zealand in 1964-65 with success, his 10 wickets costing 25.30. With the bat he also shone, hammering 47 from the No. 11 berth at Rawalpindi. The three Tests were his final first-class matches.
