Pride of Pakistan-Mohsin Khan

Mohsin Hasan Khan is an ex-cricketer from Pakistan who used to open the innings for Pakistan in the late 70s till the mid 80s.

Mohsin Khan made his ODI debut against West Indies at Albion and his test debut against England in 1978 at Karachi. Mohsin Khan is one of the few batsmen who could adapt well to the bouncy Australian pitches. His centuries at Adelaide (149) and Melbourne (153) in the 1983-84 series are ample proof. Even in England he scored a double century at Lords in 1982. An interesting record associated with Mohsin Khan is that he scored 101 runs from the required 135 runs in the 2nd innings of a test match against India. This remains the lowest team score featuring a century to date.

Mohsin Khan was a stylish batsman who scored a total of 2709 runs in the 48 matches he played. In the One Day Internationals his total score is 1877 from 75 appearances. He retired from cricket in 1986.

Mohsin Khan was appointed the chief selector of PCB in 2009-10. Mohsin Khan left cricket to opt for a career in movies. He acted in a few movies in India and later worked in Pakistan. However, in last few years he has been associated with Pakistan Cricket Board in various capacities.
