Despite having only six first-class wickets to his name, Sajid Mahmood was selected for England A's tour to India and Malaysia in 2003-04.

Mahmood bowls a fuller length than many of his pace-bowling contemporaries. For a while, he made his name at the expense of his team-mates - in 2003, he put Andrew Flintoff out of action with a beamer in the Old Trafford nets, and later broke Alex Gidman's hand at the ECB Academy.

Three years later, he was inflicting the damage on his opponents instead, as he announced his Test arrival against Sri Lanka at Lord's with a fiery three-wicket burst, before overcoming cries of "traitor" from the British Pakistani fans at Headingley.
