A right-handed top-order batter, Asad Shafiq made his international debut in 2010, and he made an immediate splash with a half-century in an ODI on the tour to England in 2010. A Test call-up followed later that year, and Shafiq vindicated his elevation to the whites by scoring 61 on debut against South Africa in Abu Dhabi. He has scored 6188 runs in 147 international matches with 12 centuries, and his birthday is a good occasion to marvel at his cracking square cut.
