Mohhamad Irfan, 7' 1": The height of this left-arm Pakistan fast bowler has been the subject of some speculation, but Irfan has confirmed to being an inch over seven feet, a few notches above his idol Joel Garner. Spotted by former international Aaqib Javed and summoned to the National Cricket Academy in Lahore for training, Irfan impressed in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy in 2009 and debuted for Pakistan the next year against England when Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were axed from the side for spot-fixing. The 30-year-old also signed an MOU with Kolkata Knight Riders for the 2011 season, after he was recommended by Wasim Akram, though BCCI's disapproval of Pakistani players playing the IPL cost him a chance to compete in the cash-rich league.
