Pakistan offspinner Miran Bux's main claim to fame is that he was the second-oldest debutant in Test history. He was 47 years 275 days when, in his last season of first-class cricket in 1954-55, he was called up against India at Lahore. It was a short-lived experiment - he took only two wickets in his two Tests - but Miran did at least end with a first-class bowling average of 19.
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
