One of the finest leg spinners of his time, Mushtaq Mohammad made
his debut for Pakistan as a teenager in 1958. Considered to be an
allrounder, Mushy has 10 Test Match 100's to his credit along with
79 odd test wickets. After retiring from active cricket in 1978,
Mushtaq moved to England where he set base as a cricketing coach.
Returning to Pakistan to coach the national team, Mushtaq had a 
bumpy ride as the national coach. Following the teams poor
performance in the Independence cup in India,people were calling
for Mushtaq and Ramiz Raja's heads. Ramiz was sacked and Mushtaq 
received the same treatment. A poor way to treat a man who did a fine
job with the resources available as the team coach. Nevertheless,
he was a fine cricketer and deserves mention as a Pakistan Legend.
