It was a case of better late than never for Tabish Khan who made his debut for Pakistan against Zimbabwe in Harare at the age of 36.

Tabish was overseas professional at Fox Lodge in 2014, taking 27 wickets at just over 20, including a five wicket hail against Brigade.

He was no mug with the bat either making nearly 400 runs, with a top score of 131 against Clontarf in the Irish Cup.

The pace bowled also played twice in the Interprovincial Championship, taking 6 for 55 in one innings against the Northern Knights.

His 598 first-class wickets are the second-most by anyone before their Test debut for a team other than England, with our very own Tim Murtagh having 712 first-class wickets before Ireland played Pakistan in Malahide in May 2018.

Murtagh was also 36 years old on debut.
