TEAMS

In one of the more exciting days out a full-time bank clerk could hope for, Saqlain Haider once kept wicket for Australia. With Brad Haddin taking a day's rest from the Australians' tour match against Pakistan A in Sharjah in October 2014, Haider was called upon to fill in. He took a sharp catch off Nathan Lyon's offspin, and at the end of the day proudly showed off his bruised hands - the result of holding onto Mitchell Johnson and Mitchell Starc's thunderbolts. By all accounts, Haider impressed behind the stumps, as much with his temperament as his technique.

Indeed, Haider is something of a big-match player, having been Man of the Match in three major domestic finals in UAE. Haider is also a solid left-hand middle-order batsman and a more-than-competent outfielder. For the moment, he remains Swapnil Patil's understudy as wicketkeeper, but could be an important part of UAE's cricketing future.
