Mohammad Munaf was a right-arm seamer and a capable late-order batsman who played four Tests in two series against Australia (1959-60) and England (1961-62). His best figures of 4 for 42 came at Dacca in the first Test against England, but after one more appearance he was dropped. He toured the Caribbean (1957-58) and India (1960-61) without making the Test side.
