In his first ODI, he scored 23 runs, and in his first test match, he scored 56 runs in both innings.

Rise to Glory

During Pakistan’s 1992 Cricket World Cup victory, Moin Khan was the team’s wicketkeeper. When Pakistan needed nine runs from eight balls in the semi-finals against New Zealand, Khan hit a six to make it three runs from seven balls and then hit a boundary to help Pakistan win.

In 1994, Moin took his first major Test wicket against Australia in Lahore. In that match, Moin not only assisted Pakistan in reaching a successful total, but he also scored his first Test century.

Pakistan required 357 runs to win a Test match against Sri Lanka in Sialkot. Moin scored an undefeated 117 runs, but the rest of the batsmen were unable to help him, and Pakistan lost by 144 runs.

Moin scored 112 off 59 balls for Karachi Dolphins in the ABN-AMRO Twenty20 Cup, becoming the first Pakistani cricketer to score a century in T20 cricket.

Retirement

In 2004, Moin’s last series was against Sri Lanka. On October 16, 2004, he played his last One-Day International against Sri Lanka at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. Moin, who is usually a middle-order batsman, opened the innings for his team and scored 14 runs.

Moin’s most recent Test match was also against Sri Lanka, and he struggled in that match, scoring just 6 runs in both innings as a result of which Sri Lanka won by 201 runs.

Since the PSL 2016, he has been the head coach of the Quetta Gladiators.
