Mushtaq Mohammad mourns Alimuddin's death
Pakistan great Mushtaq Mohammad paid tribute to a "thorough gentleman" in Alimuddin (81) after the former Test opener died in London on Thursday.
The youngest cricketer ever to make a first-class debut, Alimuddin was aged just 12 years and 73 days when he played for Rajasthan in the pre-partition Ranji Trophy. “When I was a kid he would take me to nets. I owe him quite a lot,” he said.
