Imran Farhat is a gifted young left-handed opener. His early appearances in the Test arena, and was promptly discarded after the tour to New Zealand in 2000-01. However, he tightened his game and achieved much more success in the 2003-04 season. Balancing his impressive range of shots with better defensive technique, Farhat scored a surge of runs in the home series against South Africa and New Zealand, being involved in a record four successive hundred partnerships with Yasir Hameed in the one-day internationals against New Zealand. He went up to score his first century in both Tests and ODIs during this season with a vital 101 in Pakistan's victory against India in the Lahore Test. When Pakistan included only one specialist opener in the squad for the series against England in 2005 - Butt - seemingly it confirmed that Farhat, temporarily, was out of national reckoning.
