This was the eighth match of the inaugural World Cup competition held at Edgbaston, Birmingham UK in the summer of 1975. Without the services of our Pakistan captain Asif Iqbal and the young all-rounder Imran Khan who were unavailable because of injury, few expected much of us against the powerhouse West Indians. However the pundits were proved wrong by a masterly innings from Majid Khan who made 60, Wasim Raja 58, I made 55 and Zaheer Abbas 31. Pakistan made 266 for the loss of 7 wickets from our 60 over allotment, and had Majid and I not been unfortunately dismissed ‘playing on’, the total may have been larger.

Northamptonshire CCC

Not surprisingly given the twists and turns of my life, my tenure at Northamptonshire CCC was filled with firsts, lasts and everything in between. It is a time I remember with a very special warmth in my heart. I made life-long friendships with some of the most wonderful people I have been lucky enough to meet, both cricketers and supporters alike.

I’ve been associated with Attock Cricket Club, which exists in the heart of Birmingham UK, for a long while and it is a club that is holds a special place for me. I have watched some of our junior player become very accomplished cricketers through a combination of their determination and a magnificent pool of senior, ECB coaches. The success of the cricket club is overwhelming with demand far exceeding supply, which gives me great pleasure.
