Right hand Bat
Mohammad Aslam was a dashing strokeplayer, renowned for his electric fielding, and also occasionally bowled a mixture of mixture of leg-breaks and googlies. He toured England in 1954, and despite making 421 runs on the tour at 28.06 he struggled in his one Test, scoring 16 and 18 at Trent Bridge, and did not play for his country again. Though he played only one official Test, Aslam also took part in the first 'unofficial' Test Pakistan played before they gained Test status in 1952-53, against the touring West Indies in Lahore's Bagh-e-Jinnah in 1947-48. After retiring he took up umpiring, on the insistence of Pakistan's first - unofficial Test - captain Mian Mohammad Saeed and officiated in three Tests - all involving Pakistan and England - in 1973 and 1977. He took over as senior coach at Lahore's Aitchson College and worked at a national training camp in the mid-80s.
