Danish Kaneria

India Cricket Live A tall, wiry legspinner, and only the second Hindu to play Test cricket for Pakistan (the first, his cousin Anil Dalpat, was briefly their wicketkeeper), Danish Kaneria mastered some vital skills at an early age. His stock ball drifts into the batsman and he possesses a well-disguised googly. His whirling approach is reminiscent of Abdul Qadir, and he looks set to pick up the baton from Mushtaq Ahmed as Pakistan's premier legspinner. Kaneria was hyped as a secret weapon when England toured Pakistan in 2000-01, and though his impact in the Test series was minimal, he has since made his mark, mostly against the lesser lights of Bangladesh, but also in a home Test against South Africa, when his five-for won Pakistan the match. Against Bangladesh, though, his figures are awesome: 34 wickets in five Tests at 16, with best figures of 12 for 94 in the opening game of the Asian Test Championship in August 2001. But it was during the India tour of 2005, where Kaneria was Pakistan's best bowler by some way, that Kaneria showed his true class. Against batsmen who routinely demolish legspinner Kaneria picked up 19 wickets from three Tests and helped Pakistan draw the series 1-1
