There used to be a somewhat obscure opening batsman for Pakistan
named Talat Ali. Before SriLanka gained test status he opened
for Pakistan in some unofficial test matches (1974, I think).
He was out first or second ball to Tony Opatha (srilankan medium pacer,
who now makes a living  as a cricket coach in Holland), in
both the innings of the first test. In the other tests he was
out wihout entering double figures, always off the bowling of Opatha.
Interestingly several of his dismissals were lbw's and the matches
were played in Pakistan. Does anyone have a more detailed
recollection ?
