Profile

Atiq-uz-Zaman's greatest misfortune as a more than able wicketkeeper was to have played at around the same period as Moin Khan and Rashid Latif. From 1991 to 2003, if one of them wasn't keeping, then the other was and few others got a look in. Zaman was good enough, however, even in this time of plenty, to play one Test and three ODIs for Pakistan in 2000 and do a more than adequate job in them (he took five catches in his one and only Test against Sri Lanka). Much of his good work had come in the preceding domestic seasons; he broke a longstanding record for the highest number of dismissals in a season in 2000-01 with 76 victims and also held the record for the highest number of victims in a domestic limited-overs game (6). He played three successful seasons in league cricket in England thereafter, before resurfacing on the domestic scene in Pakistan in 2007-08 with Sui Southern Gas Company. He now lives in England, where he is hoping to play county cricket. Cricinfo Staff February 2008
