Iftikhar Anjum is one of the versatile players in the line of pace bowlers in Pakistan cricket team. His outswinger is considered by many to be just as lethal as Aaqib's. He can bowl reverse-swing - a prerequisite for Pakistani bowlers, when the ball gets a bit rougher, with good control over his yorkers. Iftikhar has performed consistently well in the domestic circuit since making his debut three years ago, taking over 200 wickets on the generally lifeless pitches of Pakistan. It was his outstanding performance in the current domestic season that brought him to national attention. Iftikhar led his team - the Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited - to victory in the Patron's Trophy final against WAPDA, taking seven wickets in the first innings and ending with ten in the match. He was included in Pakistan's one-day squad for the series against India in 2004, before making his debut in the Paktel Cup seven moths later.
