Faisal Iqbal is a middle-orderbatsmen for Pakistan. Being Javed Miandad's nephew, he was brought under a lot of criticism for being induced into a Test arena so soon.
But he proved everybody wrong with an aggressive run-a-ball 83in the first Test against Australia in Colombo in 2002-03. Besides that he has not lived to his reputation and not used his potential to the fullest.
Though, thefighting spiritthat Iqbalshowed suggests that he is destined for bigger things.
