Profile

Talat was a dogged opener who got his Test career off to a traumatic start when he fractured his thumb on debut, facing Dennis Lillee at Adelaide in 1972-73. Pakistan won only one of his 10 matches, when he made 40 and a Test-best 61 at Christchurch in 1978-79. After retiring he became an ICC match referee.
