Profile

Few Pakistani fast bowlers have been as wily and smart as Mohammad Asif, though fewer have been as prone to scandal and controversy off the field. Neither claim can easily be made given the rich competition.

Best Performances
    • 4 for 78 and 3 for 48 v India, Karachi, 2005-06
      • Pakistan have recovered from Irfan Pathan's devastating hat-trick in the first over of the Karachi Test. Going by the trends in the series so far, the 245 they manage seems a small total, but India are now facing Asif on a juicy pitch. In the fourth over, Asif picks up the prized scalp of Rahul Dravid, and soon bowls the makeshift opener VVS Laxman as well. Yuvraj Singh makes a solid start, but Asif traps him lbw for 45. His 4 for 78 plays a huge role in restricting India to 238. In the final innings India are chasing an impossible 607, but the likelihood of them battling out a draw is bleak when Asif bowls Virender Sehwag, Dravid and Tendulkar to set up a massive victory. Asif later says he likes bowling to batsmen like Dravid.
    • 6 for 44 and 5 for 26 v Sri Lanka, Kandy, 2005-06
      • Sri Lanka are formidable opponents at home, and the first Test of the two-match series has been drawn. Asif gives Pakistan a superb start in the second Test in Kandy by dismissing Upul Tharanga, Sanath Jayasuriya and Mahela Jayawardene cheaply. He slices through the tail, and finishes with 6 for 44, his first five-for in Tests. Pakistan, however, bat poorly in reply to Sri Lanka's 279, and concede a lead of 109. Asif is pure dynamite in the second innings, blowing away five of Sri Lanka's top six batsmen and reducing them to 65 for 6, setting up a rare home defeat for Sri Lanka.
    • 2 for 34 and 5 for 76 v South Africa, Port Elizabeth, 2006-07
      • It is Asif's second Test since his comeback from the drugs scandal. In the match before this, he has taken a five-for in Centurion, but Pakistan go on to lose. In this, the Port Elizabeth Test, Pakistan have gained a significant 141-run lead in the first innings, and Asif consolidates the advantage by dismissing Graeme smith and AB de Villiers early. The South African middle order offer resistance but Asif keeps chipping away, trapping Jacques Kallis lbw for 91 and taking the crucial wickets of Herschelle Gibbs and Mark Boucher in their forties. Asif finishes with 5 for 76 and South Africa are dismissed for 331, setting Pakistan a target of 191 that they achieve with five wickets in hand.
