Naved Latif is an aggressive right-hand batsman from Punjab who tried to break into the national side at a time when Pakistan's batting was extremely top-heavy. In just his second one-day international, he hit a match-winning 113 against Sri Lanka. He also has the highest first-class score below 400 - a 394 for Sargodha against Gujranwala in 2000-01. However, a string of indifferent performances meant his appearances were limited to just 11 ODIs, the last of which came against South Africa in 2003. He also played one Test, against West Indies in early 2002. He also made some fleeting appearances in the South Nottinghamshire League in Division 1 for Plumtree CC. He now has no chance of a recall, after deciding to appear for the Lahore Badshahs in the second edition of the Indian Cricket League's Twenty20 competition in early 2008.
