The former Pakistan pacer Rana Naved-ul-Hasan was a fine strike bowler. Rana was a hockey player right up to the age of 16. He suffered a very serious knee injury and after surgery was advised complete rest from all sport for a year by the doctors. However, despite the advice from the doctors, he would sneak out and play cricket in the street. He enjoyed wicket-keeping and batting in those days and that got him interested in playing cricket. In 2005, he was probably the best ODI bowler in the world. In 22 ODIs he took 45 wickets at an average of 21.53. He was selected in the ICC World One Day XI and received a cap to mark that.
