4. Nasim-ul-Ghani (Pakistan)

The all-rounder played in 10 different batting positions for Pakistan

Nasim-ul-Ghani is an all-rounder who played for Pakistan from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. He made his debut at the age of 16 and was the youngest cricketer to play Test cricket at the time. Post his retirement, the former Pakistani player served as a match referee, a national selector and an ICC development officer for brief periods of time.

Ghani was never really a prominent batsman but has the distinction of batting in 10 different positions for Pakistan. Although he did play as an opener in 2 innings, he was never at the striker's end and so he never batted at No. 1 in the team's batting line-up.

Among the different positions that he batted in, Nasim-ul-Ghani was mostly seen at the No. 8 spot, a position that he occupied in 15 out of the 50 innings he played.
