Mohsin KHAN - Pakistan - Test Profile 1978-86

 

Mohsin Khan, an attractive stroke-making opening batsman, had been playing first-class cricket with Pakistan Railways for six years when he was chosen to tour West Indies with Pakistan in 1976-77. He made no appearances in international cricket on that first tour, though he did score 55 against the Windward Islands. He made his Test debut in Karachi in the third Test against Mike Brearley's side in 1977-78, scoring 44. He made two forties and three thirties on the 1978 tour of England, but lost his place on the return of Pakistan's stars from World Series Cricket. Mohsin forced his way back into the national side for a 1981-82 tour of Australia. Later that season he had a successful series against Sri Lanka, scoring 74 at Faisalabad and 129 in Lahore.

 

At Lord's against England in 1982 he scored a magnificent 200. Against Australia at Karachi in 1982-83 he was given out handled ball when he played a ball from Geoff Lawson close to his stumps and instinctively brushed it away with his hand. In the same series he made 76 in an innings victory at Faisalabad and 135 at Lahore. Against India in Lahore he made 94 and 101 not out, followed by 91 in Karachi. There was an innings of 152 in Melbourne in 1983-84, and 104 against England at Lahore. In the World Cup of 1983 he scored 82 against Sri Lanka in Swansea and 70 against the West Indies in the semi-final at the Oval. (Bob Harragan)
