Imran Nazir (Cricketer) playing cricket

Nazir made his debut in Test cricket in March 1999 against Sri Lanka at Lahore in Pakistan, and his One Day International debut against the same opposition at Visakhapatnam in India. He played in 8 Test matches between 1999–2002 and secured a spot in the Pakistan squad since 2002. He also played in One Day International arena, but he could never cement his place in the squad. The emergence of several Pakistan opening batsmen such as Imran Farhat, Mohammad Hafeez, Yasir Hameed, Taufeeq Umar, and Salman Butt kept him out of the national side. However, he displayed excellent cricketing performances in First class cricket.

Nazir made his return to the national team in the second One Day International against South Africa in February 2007 during Pakistans tour of South Africa. He impressed the Pakistan national selectors with his innings of 57 runs from just 39 deliveries, though he struggled to score runs during the rest of the tournament.

Nazir was named in Pakistans squad for the 2007 World Cup. He scored 160 runs against Zimbabwe in Pakistans last match during the 2007 Cricket World Cup, after being knocked out by Ireland.

It was the second highest score by a Pakistani batsman and the eighth highest score by any batsman in World Cup history and his 8 sixes equalled the World Cup record of Australian batsman, Ricky Ponting. It was also the highest runs he scored in List A cricket. He now remains a regular member of Pakistans Twenty20 squads.
