Aslam Khokhar played in 45 first-class matches between 1938–39 and 1963–64, and scored the first ever century in first-class cricket in Pakistan[2] when, batting for Punjab against Sind in December 1947, he made 117.[3] In the second Test in England, he batted at number nine, scoring 16 and 18.[4] He also umpired 3 Tests in the 1970s.
