Salim Asif Durrani and Mohinder Amarnath
Then there is the most popular ‘hit man’ from that era-the 60s down to mid 80s. He would have fans in the stands cheering and calling out to him ball after ball “sixer, sixer” even in a Test match.
Yes, this is none other than the graceful Afghan, who was also briefly seen on celluloid in Mumbai: the six foot tall and handsome Salim Asif Durrani.
He was also the original ‘come back’ man of Indian cricket before
Mohinder Amarnath, a utility all rounder and one of the modern heroes of Indian cricket’s maiden World Cup triumph on English soil in 1983.
An IPL franchise would love to have a Durrani and Mohinder along with his younger brother Surinder in its dug out. wonder what Durrain’s base price would be, if were to figure in T20 format and drive terror into bowlers’ hearts!
