Umpire

A tall and stocky offpsinner, Javed Akhtar's one Test appearance came as a 21-year-old after a long flight from Pakistan as a replacement for Haseeb Ahsan. It was not a match to remember as he went wicketless and Pakistan lost by an innings. He went on to become a leading umpire, but his career ended under a cloud when at Headingley in 1998 he was accused of favouring England when he gave eight dubious decisions in England's favour in the series decider. At the King Commission in 2000 he was accused by Ali Bacher of inappropriate behaviour in that match, claims that Akhtar vigorously denied, and no charges were ever brought against him. Bacher later refused to appear in court in Pakistan to answer charges of libel brought against him by Akhtar.
