Zakir Khan was a tall and powerfully-built right-arm seamer whose surprise selection for the 1985-86 tour of Sri Lanka was partially justified when he took 3 for 80 on his debut at Colombo (0 for 70 in the second innings). Thereafter he was in and out of the one-day side where his batting was useful at the end of innings. His second Test appearance was as unexpected as the first, against India at Sialkot in 1989-90, and again he did little of note. He retired in 1992 and subsequently worked for the Pakistan board as a media manager and then secretary.
