Tall and strong, Shakeel Khan bowled brisk medium pace for Habib Bank and was called up to play a solitary one-day international for Pakistan when Wasim Akram was injured in 1987. He played against England at the Arbab Niaz Stadium in Peshawar, and claimed the wicket of Chris Broad, clean bowled, in a nine-over spell that yielded 50 runs. He made a duck batting last as Pakistan collapsed to a 98-run loss. He was never picked to play for Pakistan again, but is still very much involved in cricket as a part of the media cell of the Pakistan Cricket Board.
