TEAMS

Taslim Arif made his Pakistan debut as a batsman - when he ground out 90 and 46 against India at Calcutta in 1979-80 - but had the gloves for the rest of his Test career. In his third Test, against Australia the same winter, Taslim made a mighty seven-hour 210 not out, the highest score by a wicketkeeper in a Test Andy Flower made 232 not out in 2000-01. But with Wasim Bari a vastly superior gloveman, Taslim only played six Tests; he ended with a batting average of 62.62. He was a surprising signing for World Series Cricket's second season - uncapped and hardly a household name. Taslim died aged 53 from a lung infection.
