Wasim Hasan Raja would be my 2nd pick. He was a man that has played some part in improving Pakistan's batting talent. He was a household name in Pakistan (at least). He was also Ramiz Raja's elder brother. Wasim Raja was a glorious lefthanded strokemaker, who revelled in adversity, a useful legspinner, who also opened the bowling for Pakistan on occasions, and an outstanding, cover fieldsman. He represented Pakistan in more than 100 international matches, coached the national side for a short while and had a spell as an ICC match referee. He will always be remembered for the style and spirit in which he played the game, yet for such a mild-mannered and charming man he had his fair share of clashes with the Pakistan board. He was a batting prodigy and led the under-19 side. Quite often then he did not bother to wear pads when practising with his contemporary Imran Khan, who admitted that Wasim "was in a different class altogether and was already batting with a maturity beyond his years" (Thanks to ESPNCricinfo)

He also passed away while playing cricket in England in 2006. He is of the very few cricketers' whose wives also played first-class cricket.

1.:saf: Graeme Smith
:pak: Wasim Raja (batting number undecided)


His Stats:
57 Tests and 2821 runs at a batting average of 36.16. 51 test wickets are also to his name at an average of 35.80

Malcolm Marshall

For a bowler who has taken more than 200 test wickets, he has the best bowling average. A west-indian fast bowler from the 80s era is a recipe to win matches. His average at home and away are almost equal. His test bowling average is 20.94 with S/R of 46.7 and economy of 2.68. He has taken a grand total of 376 wickets.

Amir Elhai's stats look more a bowler/all-rounder than a batsman!
