Profile

Wisden overview
Waqar Hassan was an attractive strokemaker, who was ideal in a crisis and and a fine field either at cover or further out. He made his first-class debut at 17, and toured India in 1952-53, making a stubborn 81 and 65 after Pakistan had been reduced to 60 for 6 on the first day of the third Test, at Bombay. India won on that occasion, but a five-hour 97 at Calcutta saved the day in the fifth match. His finest hour came in 1955-56, during the second Test against New Zealand. After six wickets had fallen for 111, he and Imtiaz Ahmed added a brilliant 308. New Zealand were narrowly beaten amid intense excitement. Christopher Martin-Jenkins
