Majid Jahangir Khan is a former cricketer, specialist batsman and former captain of the Pakistan cricket team.

Born in 1946 in Ludhiana, in the state of Punjab in India, Khan grew up in Lahore, the capital of the Punjab in Pakistan. His father, Jahangir Khan, had played Test cricket for the Indian cricket team. Majid Khan had started as a pace bowler, but an injury and doubts over his technique converted him into an off-spin bowler and batsman. He also played for the teams of Glamorgan and Cambridge University in England, for Queensland, Australia, and in Pakistan for Pakistan International Airlines, Rawalpindi and the province of Punjab.

Majid became famous in 1967 when he hit Glamorgan bowler Roger Davis for 6 sixes in an over. He scored a century in that match and later Glamorgan signed him for further eight seasons. Majid solved Pakistan's opening problem in 1974 when Pakistan team toured England. He opened the innings for Pakistan at The Oval in 3rd test scoring 98. In the first one day international he played one of the finest innings of limited overs cricket. Majid scored 109 and smashed Bob Willis, Peter Lever, Derek Underwood and Tony Greig all over the park.

At his best posessed the genius of Barry and Viv Richards and could ruthlessly tear any great bolwing attack like atiger .One of the most stylish batsmen of all time who displayed a silkentouch..

The most gifted batsman to ever played for Pakistan who posessed a glorious silken touch.A master on bad wickets who could even overshadow the Greg Chappell's and Viv Richards on those surfaces.In his day brilliantly tackled great paceman like Lillee and Roberts .An average of 39.92 hardly did justice to his maestro who posessed genius in the class of Barry and Viv Richards.At his best against West Indies in 1976-77 averaging 65 on their tracks.His best innings on a broken surface at Worcester reminded you of greats like Trumper.
