Top Cricket Captain in the world
The captain of a cricket team often referred to as the skipper is the appointed leader. . Maximum output with some simple thoughts...
Saleem Malik was many things: a gifted, wristy, square of the wicket batsman; the first man who really got on top of Shane Warne, in Pakistan in 1994 95; a fine overseas player for Essex where he became known as Slim in 1991, if less so later; and an influential captain of Pakistan. Unfortunately his role in cricket did not end there. In 2000, he became the first player to be banned from all cricket for match fixing, when Justice Qayyum s inquiry found him guilty. Shane Warne and Mark Waugh also testified that Malik had tried to bribe them to lose the Karachi Test of 1994 95 which Australia did, by one wicket. He protested his innocence, appealed against the ban in 2001 but the Lahore High Court rejected it. He sought relief from the Supreme Court and after a seven year wait, had his ban lifted by a lower court.
