Profile

Aftab Baloch - who is best remembered for scoring 428 for Sind against Baluchistan in 1973-74, the seventh-highest score in first-class history - is one of the more anonymous members of cricket's 400 club. But he only played two Tests for Pakistan, the first of them when he was only 16. He did tour England in 1974, and although he didn't make the Test side he was, by coincidence, given room 428 in one of the team's hotels. He played his second Test five years later against the West Indies, scoring a brilliant 60 not out but failed to make himself a permanent member of the team due to the strong Pakistani batting lineup of the 1970s.
