RELATIONS

Imtiaz Ahmed was one of the fine, proud, patriotic band of cricketers, most of them Lahore College graduates, who gave Pakistan such a successful start in the 1950s. As a batsman he was a magnificent hooker: Majid Khan said he was inspired by the sight of Imtiaz taking on Wes Hall at Lahore in 1958-59. He was also Pakistan's first regular wicketkeeper, which often forced him to bat down the order when he was so suited to being an attacking opener. In England in 1954 he came closer than any tourist before or since to the wicketkeeper's double of 1000 runs and 100 dismissals in a first-class season - he finished 14 dismissals short.
