Danish Kaneria is a tall, wiry leg spinner, and only the second Hindu to play Test cricket for Pakistan. His stock ball drifts into the batsman and he has a googly as cloaked as any in recent history. His whirling approach is suggestive of Abdul Qadir, and he has now picked up the baton from Mushtaq Ahmed as Pakistan's premier leg spinner. Initially he made his mark against matches of Bangladesh and also in a home Test against South Africa, when his five-for one won Pakistan the match. Since then he is known as the authentic match winner, leading Pakistan to wins against Sri Lanka in Karachi in 2004 and against the West Indies in Jamaica in 2005. He ended 2005 with two further, last-day match-winning turns against England at home.
