Family[edit]

His brother, Imran Farhat[1] has also played international cricket for Pakistan.

Career[edit]

Domestic[edit]

He played in 5 One day international matches and a single test match for Pakistan due to the presence of wicketkeepers like Moin Khan and Rashid Latif he could not really cement his place in the national colours. In the year 2007 he participated in the unofficial Indian cricket league (ICL) representing Lahore Badshah; the participation in ICL meant that he was banned from the Pakistan team for life plus with the emergence of Kamran Akmal his section for the national side was already a question mark.

International[edit]

He has played one Test match, in March 2001 against New Zealand and five One Day International matches for Pakistan, he is the only wicketkeeper to have played Test cricket who has not recorded a single dismissal.[2]
