Mohammad Asif for Pakistan

Mohammad Asif has served the ban from International cricket following the spot fixing scandal that hit Pakistan in 2010. The bowler has scalped 106 wickets in just 23 Tests at a brilliant average of 24.36. The loose wrists of Asif used to swing the ball to a large extent which troubled world class batsmen at times. He has 7 five-wicket hauls to his name courtesy his ability to swing the ball both ways.

He was also the part of Pakistan’s run to the final in the inaugural edition of World T20 where they lost to India by 5 runs. The 34-year-old has also done well for his country in the 50-over cricket picking 46 wickets in 38 matches, 3/28 being his best bowling figures. He is currently vying for his place back in the team but hasn’t played any competitive cricket since December 2016.
