Zaheer Abbas (extreme right) walks down the crease after hitting Dilip Doshi for 6 on his way to a magnificent 168 off 176 balls at Faisalabad in 1982-83. This was his third consecutive hundred against India and, like this innings, the last two were mammoth and commanding scores as well. After tonking 215 in the first Test at Lahore - a game in which India responded gamely to Pakistan's imposing total - he led Pakistan to an innings-victory in the second with his 186 off only 246 balls after coming in to bat at 18 for 3. Here, at Faisalabad, he was one of four Pakistani batsmen to score hundreds in another victory. Pakistan won three out of six games and Zaheer continued dominating India: he had 650 runs in the series at an average of 130. This series reflected the hold he had over India throughout his career. Only in one of his four series against India did he not perform well. Even then, he ended with 1740 in 19 games against India with six hundreds and an average of 87. In comparison, against all other opposition, he averaged 35.72.
