An all-arounder who has made a mark because of his versatility and intelligence, Shoaib Malik has been an asset to Pakistan cricket. He has scored runs in vital matches and been at the heart of Pakistan's ODI revival.

Ever since his debut in 1999, he has batted in almost every position. Although Shoaib began playing Test cricket coming lower down the order, he was even used as an opener and proved to be an adept one. He is an intelligent cricketer who can change his batting style according to the situation. Malik can also toss up off-spinners but does not possess a very clean action and has been reported twice. Hence, he underwent an elbow surgery to correct his action.

Malik took over the captaincy from Inzamam-ul-Haq after the 2007 World Cup. His captaincy stint began well, as Pakistan made it to the finals of the World Twenty20 under his leadership. Pakistan will look to have his services for as long as possible
