A bowler who never fulfilled his early promise, partly through his own failings and partly because of unfair selection. Nasim-ul-Ghani was the youngest Test cricketer at the time when he made his debut against West Indies, at only 16. His career started well but rapidly tailed off. Primarily a left-arm spinner, he could also bowl medium-pace. Flight was his main weapon. Nasim was a versatile batsman too: he opened the batting for Pakistan and also came in at No. 11. His batting ability was revealed when he came in as a nightwatchman at Lord's in 1962 and struck a century - the first by a Pakistani in England. He was assistant manager on Pakistan's 1996 tour of England. He has since had a spell as a national selector, an ICC development officer in South Asia, and a match referee.
