Bazid Khan has a good orthodox batting technique and equable temperament which have helped him score heavily in domestic cricket in Pakistan . He was part of the national Under-19s when he was just 15, and rather like his father Majid, used England as a finishing school. He played in the same Brighton College side as Matthew Prior that won 20 matches in 1999, and two years later spent some time on the MCC Ground Staff. On the fringes of the full Pakistan side for some time, Bazid averaged over 70 at home in 2003-4, and was finally blooded in a triangular one-day tournament early in the following season. He was also part of Pakistan's tour to the West Indies in 2005 but could not retain his place in the side. He spent nearly three years on the sidelines before being recalled to the ODI squad for the home series against Bangladesh in April 2008 following an impressive domestic season.
