EarlyCareerA technique more solid than many recent top-order Pakistani batsmen served him well in his career early on. His exploits in the one-day arena were initially as impressive, and he forged a superb combination with Imran Farhat at the top of the order: against New Zealand at home the pair put together a record four consecutive hundred partnerships. The early signs were promising then, but he developed a worrying tendency to waste his starts, making pretty 20s and then throwing it away, often by flailing at wide ones outside off. That saw him lose his place in the team in late 2004. He was then left out of the squad because of a dip in form. He came back in the final ODI in the Bank Alfalah Series against England in 2005/6, scored 57 but was again ignored only to return against West Indies in the fourth match in November 2006, where he scored 71 runs from 118 balls.
Domestic CareerHe came back after some prolific scoring in the domestic circuit. More opportunities were offered after the enforced departure of Mohammad Yousuf but Hameed failed to garner consistency as a result of which he was sent packing from Pakistan's scheme of things. An unassuming cricketer, Hameed's laidback disposition only increases the poignancy of his story.Yasir has since impressed the selectors with good form in the domestic season with the bat but has not been given a real chance to cement his place in the side. He has recently been touring with the team but has only been given the odd match. He has not played international cricket since August 2010. In September 2007, Yasir played a major role in defeating Australia A in a comprehensive 3“0 defeat while representing Pakistan A. He scored two centuries out of the three matches and was given good support by Naved Latif and Taufeeq Umar while the bowlers also did well in the series.
