    Interesting player Ijaz. Not very consistent and someone whose nervousness at the start of his innings was especially visible. But when he was in top form he could be quite dangerous.

    One of only two batsman that I have have ever seen get bowled 'around his legs' that lost, not his leg stump, but his middle stump!

    The axeman was as brutal as anyone on his day, and the way he demolished Indian trundlers in Lahore in 1997 will forever be etched in the memory of every Pakistani, as well as Mohanty, Kuruvilla and Kulkarni. Also liked a challenge, and the likes of Australia brought the best out of him.

    However as mentioned already, he was too inconsistent for someone who was occupying the all important number 3 position, and he was a very nervous starter. His famous 'nod' after getting squared up early in his innings was legendary.

    That Pakistan team of the 90's could have achieved a lot more if it had the services of a world class number 3, to complement the successful opening pair of Saeed Anwar and Aamer Sohail and the formidable middle-order of Inzamam and Salim Malik, coupled with Rashid Latif, Moin Khan and a brilliant bowling attack of course.

    Ijaz was a liability in this team if you look at his consistency and not just his peaks.

    The mad axeman! Dont forget his fielding at a time when fielding standards were relatively poor. Those as old as me would remember his one hand run out of Mike Gatting in the 1987 world cup. Bullet throw and one handed pick up.

    Other than the Lahore massacre he hammered the indians in one of canada 5 game series match.

    I remember that. He hit his left leg with the middle of the bat.

    He was a liability at 3 and had a habit of scoring just as he was about to be dropped, usually in a dead rubber.


    Better luck next time

    You're exaggerating. Sohail was quite mediocre. Malik pleasing on the eye but hardly consistent enough to call our middle order formidable. Inzi and Anwar were the only two we could rely upon.

    Though you're right in that a gun #3 could've hid our shortcomings.

    Aamer was better than what his statistics reveal, and partnerships are more important. Yes we could have done with a Saeed Anwar close, but this was a formidable opening partnership nonetheless.

    Salim Malik was good. 33 @76 was is a very decent ODI record for a batsman of his generation and he was a fine Test batsman.

    I would say that he did underachieve however.

    Really good in Aussie conditions.

    Like Waqar Younis, seems to have been born at the age of around five.

    Ijazz became a much better player post 1993.

    From 1994 to 2000 when he retired, Ijazz averaged almost 38 at 80 SR in ODIs. These are very good numbers for an ODI batsman of the 90s. During the same period, he averaged 41 in tests with averages of 44 in Australia and 69 in England.

    Ijazz in this era would have been a top T20 opening batsman.

    Quite a few hundreds in Australia as he one of few pakistan batsmen to relish the pace and bounce in wickets.

    His 100 at headingly in 1996 also sticks in mind as a quality knock.

    ODI wise the way he butcher indian bowlers like throwing life stock into the blades of a helicopter were a joy to watch live in lahore.

    He was ugly at the crease and his dimissal in 1st test at lords in 1996 is porbably most comical thing ive ever seen.
