Playing Role




Aasif Karim represented Kenya in all of their first 25 official ODIs in a career which lasted from 1980 to 2003. Initially an attacking bowler who was happy to buy wickets, he evolved into a parsimonious one-day expert. An ever-present, he took part in the 1996, 1999 and 2003 World Cups, captaining them in the 1999 event, and also played in the 1986, 1990, 1994 and 1997 ICC Trophies. With a good variation of flight and length, he was consistently among the wickets in the Kenyan leagues. He bowed out after Kenya's remarkable success in the 2003 World Cup, and in their penultimate match, against Australia, he won the Man-of-the-Match award with figures of 8.2-6-7-3. He also captained Kenya in Davis Cup tennis.
