Asif Iqbal inspired many admirers when he was a dashing, handsome cricketer for Pakistan and Kent, and quite a few detractors when his name cropped up in the match-fixing controversy. After learning his cricket in Hyderabad, India, he moved to Pakistan, where he opened the bowling with outswing before concentrating on batting that was full of light footwork and cavalier cover-driving. But the first allegations of match-fixing concerned Pakistan's 1979-80 tour of India when Asif was captain, and many subsequent ones centred on Sharjah, where Asif presided from the outset as director of cricket.
