Nasir Jamshed is a Pakistani cricketer. An entertaining left-handed opening batsmen with a likeness to Inzamam-ul-Haq, both in terms of stature and technique. He came through the ranks at the Under-15 and Under-19 levels and impressed the selectors with his performances for National Bank, particularly in 2007/08 season where he scored 800 runs in ten Quaid-e-Azam Trophy matches including three centuries. He was subsequently selected to play for the Patron’s XI in 2008 that took on the touring Zimbabweans, where he scored 182.

After playing in the limited over matches against Sri Lanka in 2012, Jamshed was selected for the 2012 World T20, where he was one of the star players of the tournament, which included a 55 in the crucial matchup vs. Australia.

Jamshed also was key to the ODI series victory during Pakistan’s 2012/13 tour of India, scoring two consecutive centuries in the series and his third in three matches vs. India.

With Taufeeq Umar being ruled out due to injury, Jamshed was given a test cap during the overseas tour of South Africa. He failed to continue his form from the ODI format, however, as he struggled with 51 runs from 4 innings at an average of 12.75 before being dropped in the 3rd Test for Imran Farhat. After scoring 13 in the T20I vs. South Africa, and then only 45 runs in the first 3 ODIs, Jamshed was again dropped for Farhat in the last 2 ODIs.

Despite his bad form in the President’s Cup after returning to Pakistan (35 runs in 4 matches at an average of 8.75), Jamshed was selected for the Champions Trophy in England.

He was given yet another chance against South Africa in the UAE, but failed miserably. He was dropped and hasn’t really proved the selectors anything yet.


Jamshed made his first class début at the age of just 15 and was soon selected to the Pakistan Under-19 cricket team for a series against Sri Lanka, making 204 in the second innings on his début.

In the 2007–08 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy series he scored over 800 runs and earned selection in the Patron’s XI side to play Zimbabwe. He made 182 runs and within a week was playing ODI cricket for Pakistan. In his debut against the Zimbabweans he opened the batting and smashed 61 off just 48 deliveries which saw him win the Man of the Match award. In his second ODI, he hit 74 off 64 balls, becoming only third Pakistani to make consecutive half centuries in first and second matches.

In Asia Cup 2008, Jamshed hit two 50’s in the two matches he played. Against India at Karachi, he scored 53 until he was retired hurt. In the next game against Bangladesh, he scored a quick fire 52* at Karachi which set up an unbeaten 116 runs opening stand with Salman Butt which saw Pakistan home with more than 30 overs still to play. From these performances, he has really strengthened his position as an opener in the Pakistani ODI squad. During the Asia Cup 2008 Jamshed’s fitness was questioned by the commentators and he visibly seemed over weight. This lack of fitness also lead him to miss the following Twenty20 tournament in Canada, and a 3 match ODI series against the West Indies. His exclusion from the national team continued in January 2009 when he was passed over for Khurram Manzoor during the Sri Lanka ODI series.

He made his first one day international century against India on March, 18 2012 in Bangladesh at Shere Bangla National Stadium Mirpur at the 2012 Asia Cup. He scored 112 off just 104 balls and was involved in a 224 run partnership with Mohammad Hafeez, which is the second best opening partnership for Pakistan against any team and first best partnership against India in one day internationals. They eclipsed Aamer Sohail and Saeed Anwar’s record of 144 runs which was made in 1996.
