Wasim RajaWasim Hasan Raja (July 3, 1952 August 23, 2006), is a former Pakistani cricketer who played in 57 Tests and 54 ODIs from 1973 to 1985.
Wasim also had one outstanding series when he proved himself the most effective of some very fine Pakistan batsmen in the West Indies in 1976-77. He might have made a good Pakistan captain in a rather old-fashioned amateur swashbuckling fashion, but coming from the country's elite, studying in Durham and marrying an Englishwoman, he tended to be above the political battle.
Raja was born in Multan in the Punjab, and died of a Acute myocardial infarction (Heart Attack) in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, England while playing cricket for the Surrey over 50s side.
