Abdul Qadir passes away after cardiac arrest
Former Pakistan leg-spinner Abdul Qadir passed away at the age of 63 after a cardiac arrest on Friday.
Abdul Qadir, who represented Pakistan in 1983 and 1987 World Cup has passed away on Friday after a cardiac arrest. He represented Pakistan in 67 Tests and 104 ODIs between 1977 and 1993 and was widely recognized as the foremost legspinner of his times.
Qadir picked up 30 wickets in a three-Test series against England and it remained as the biggest highlight of his career. He also led the team a lot of times. After taking retirement, he also worked as chief selector of the Pakistan team and also as a commentator.
PCB tweeted: “PCB is shocked at the news of ‘maestro’ Abdul Qadir’s passing and has offered its deepest condolences to his family and friends.”
They called him the magician for many reasons but when he looked me in the eyes & told me I was going to play for Pakistan for the next 20 years, I believed him.A Magician, absolutely. A leg spinner & a trailblazer of his time. You will be missed Abdul Qadir but never forgotten
