TEAMS

Saleem Elahi's international career started with a bang when, brought into Pakistan's one-day team without having played a single first-class match, he slammed an unbeaten 102 on debut, against Sri Lanka at Gujranwala in 1995-96. Since then, Elahi has flitted in and out of the national team, and has been far more successful in the one-dayers, where his stand-and-deliver style has fetched him plenty of success -on the tours to Zimbabwe and South Africa in 2002-03, he struck three centuries in four matches. He was among a crop of players dropped after Pakistan's poor display in the World Cup, but spent only a few months in the wilderness before coming back in the ODI line-up. A Test berth, however, has proved more elusive. He hasn't found one since 2002-03, and has only one half-century in 13 matches.
