Pakistan is a Islamic state, but it has small minorities of Christians, Skhs and Hindus. One would normally associate a bias in selection of minorities in the Pakistan team. But I am glad to note that this is not the case and 2 Hindu players have made it to the ranks of the Pakistan cricket XI.Pakistan is a Islamic state, but it has small minorities of Christians, Skhs and Hindus. One would normally associate a bias in selection of minorities in the Pakistan team. But I am glad to note that this is not the case and 2 Hindu players have made it to the ranks of the Pakistan cricket XI. The first Hindu to enter the the Pakistan cricket team was Anil Dalpat. His caste is Sanwaria and he is from the Bania caste. A resident of Karachi Anil Dalpat is a wicket keeper and more than a useful batsman. Anil Dalpat was brought into the team when the captain was Imran Khan.

I knew about Danish Kaneria. And I have always appreciated the way he is as a player. And if I am not wrong, he comes from Gujarat. Do correct me if I am wrong. I happened to read about him when he was at the top of his career. I really liked the way he bowled and took Pakistan to many a memorable victory. But honestly, I didn't know more about the first player you talked of. And if you were to compare how many Hindus played for an Islamic state, I'd say India has had a lot of Muslim players at the same time. Why, even we had an able Muslim captain for years on end.reply 0
