    Ijaz Ahmed

    I never liked watching him bat - even when he was putting them over the deep backward point fence - but it cannot be denied that Izaj Ahmed was definitely a talented cricketer.

    he was ok. he wasted a lot of his time in the early part of his career. he made is debut in 1986 but couldn't really fit in to the team until the 1996 world cup

    ^

    1996? I'd say he was pretty much an automatic pic after the 94/95 season.

    Thought he was a pretty valuable cricketer actually. Excellent fielder and had a really strong bottomhanded technique. Played a memorable innings against India in the final of a one day tournament against India where he singlehandedly took their bowling apart. Actually liked his stance, one foot behind the crease and the other in front of the crease. Makes me thing of Ijaz whenever I see anyone with that stance.

    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    talented fielder as well. Used to field at backward point IIRC and had a very strong left arm.

    I don't know if talented is the right word for him. He was a street fighter and had immense confidence (somewhat misplaced in my humble opinion). He did not think much of reputations and played some really audacious innings but he also perished doing audacious things and that must have irritated Pakistan's supporters as it did Indians when it came off

    I think with a cooler head he could have achieved much more.

    Had six centuries against the Aussies so he couldn't have been that bad...

    Always rated Ijaz, as I guess we tended to in the era where you really just saw what he did against your own team, as opposed to these days where you can flick the TV on and see so much cricket.

    He wasn't pretty to watch, but I thought he was a good, effective player, in the matches I saw him play at least.
