Biography

The Pakistani seam bowler has been playing for Gloucestershire since 2004, although he has featured in only six first class matches for the club. He has played seven Test matches and 29 one-day internationals for Pakistan, but controversy over his action led to him being left out of the international squad as he attempted to sort out the problem. He bowls a very tight line and his height enables him to get a lot of bounce off the pitch. He is also able to move the ball and often manages to reverse swing it in the middle of an innings.
