All grace and fluency, Majid Khan played in the spirit of an English amateur of a bygone era. He had a distant air which sometimes gave the impression that he wasn't really trying. Majid was a Cambridge Blue and he followed his father Jahangir Khan into Test cricket, though he never matched his father's feat of hitting a sparrow in flight at Lord's. He started his career as a pace bowler, but a back injury and doubts over the legitimacy of his bouncer turned him into an occasional offspinner. His batting prowess quickly moved him up the order, and he eventually formed one half of a highly successful opening partnership with Sadiq Mohammad. Majestic driving and hooking were his hallmarks, and he could score effortlessly at speed. His career ended on a sad note when his cousin Imran Khan was forced to drop him, which soured their relationship. He was a no-nonsense administrator, but he signed off by fanning match-fixing claims over the 1999 World Cup.
