Moin Khan is a right handed batsman and wicketkeeper. This hard hitting batsman made his debut for Pakistan in 1990 against the West Indies at Multan and continued to play for them till 2004. Moin, though, the better batsman was always overshadowed by Rashid Latif, the better glove man.
A very good middle order batsman who usually adjusted the game depending on the situation, Moin held the innings together when Pakistan lost early wickets and hit the big shots when he came into bat towards the end of the innings. He was a more useful ODI player than a Test player because of his quick feet and good stroke play. Behind the stumps like any other wicketkeeper, he used to be at his cheerful best. He was also appointed captain of the Pakistan team. Moin won an impressive 20 of his 34 games as ODI captain but won only four of the 13 Tests, suffering only two losses. During his tenure he struggled to motivate the team enough and failed to convert performances into results. He was accused of being too defensive in his approach. His unconvincing and sloppy glove work and the likes of Kamran Akmal striking claim, his international career was cut-short. In his successful career he had more than 100 Test catches and over 200 ODI catches to add to the 3000-plus ODI runs to his credit.
After his retirement in 2005 he continued to play domestic cricket and became the first Pakistan player to score a century in a domestic T20 game.
