Iconic Pakistan legspinner Abdul Qadir dies aged 63

Abdul Qadir, who revived the leg spin bowling technique in the 1970s and 1980s, died in Lahore due to a heart attack.

Qadir, an important part of the most successful aspects of Pakistan in the 1980s and Shane Warne and Mushtaq Ahmed, was 63 years old, nine days shorter than the next birthday.

Qadir worked with Pakistan's cricket and a number of skills after his career, and ran a private academy just outside Gaddafi Stadium. "The PCB was shocked by Abdul Qadir's news and expressed his deepest condolences to his family and friends," the PCB said.

"We want to express our deepest condolences to our devastated family and friends on behalf of Abdul Qadir's passing news and PCB." “As with all PCBs, PCBs are proud of his service to Cricket and Pakistan. His contributions and achievements are not only limited in the field, but have transferred leg spin technology to the emerging cricketer.

Abdul Qadir wasn't a bally Maestro, but a larger figure than anyone loved and respected all over the world because of his excellent understanding and knowledge of games, strong cricket ethics and discipline. World cricket became poorer by his overtaking. He misses but will never forget. "

Qadir's numbers have fallen behind many modern spin conglomerates since then, but his influence on the genre can not be ignored. At the end of 1977 when he was on the international stage against England, the Leg Spin was a forgotten art. However, he scored six points only in his second exam.

It was important that England was an opponent, because his legend shone the brightest throughout England. Taken in English by the exotic charm of Kaidir and what he bowled, Imran Khan advised him to defend the goat for a country trip in 1982 and to strengthen his image as a strange mystic in the east.

They have also turned out to be profitable. In 1987, he took 40 turnstiles in four tests against England. In the last test held at The Oval, 10 turnstiles sealed the first series victory over Pakistan in England, and 30 turnstiles in three tests against the same opponent in Pakistan at the end of the year. The mysterious referee shed his achievements in the Pakistan series victory, but in 16 tests the 82 turnstiles were undoubtedly good.

But England was not the only place to face Qadir. Some of Qadir's best days came out of Pakistan's epic battles with the West Indies until the mid-80s. In two series drawn in Pakistan in 1986-87 and in 1987-88, Qadir was decisive. In Paisalabad, six of his 16-year-old saw West Indies bowling with 53 people. It's a lineup that includes Viv Richards, Gordon Greenidge, Desmond Haynes, Richie Richardson, and Larry Gomes.

In six tests of these two series, Qadir brought 32 wickets to the finals and made the final decision.

If there were stains, he was an Indian who can not be sure of genius. Across a series of clutches-he tested up to 16 times on the day he played regularly, but took only 27 turnstiles. The worst moment fell in the Bangalore test in March 1987, and the Pakistani test beat the backs of two spinners, not Iqbal Qasim and Tuseef Ahmed. Qadir was convinced that even Captain Yvran would drop Qadir by Javed Miandad. There was no bigger supporter and supporter of Qadir than Imran.

Nevertheless, it was hardly balanced with what he brought to the game, and in other cases as well. For example, in Australia in 1983-84, he picked up 12 expensive test turnstiles, but few had missed him.

In fact, two pioneering aspects of Qadir Bowling became apparent on the trip. The first was googly. For a few days he wrote six different things and on some days said he had two things, but all were very effective and indecipherable. And he was not afraid to use the bowl as often as possible without hiding and hiding the bowl.

The second was his ODI bowling. In the Benson & Hedges 3 Series campaign, where Pakistan won 1 of 10 games against the West Indies and Australia, Qadir opened just 18 of the 15 games in 8 games. He has used so much in ODI, just as he once again found out how useful leg spinners are now in two World Cups in 1983 and 1987. He played an important role in Pakistan's advance to the semifinals.

One of the best moments of the 1987 World Cup was a showdown with the West Indies. A silly but brave hitter, Qadir succeeded in the last 14 runs to steal a victory in bowlers like Courtney Walsh.

But Qadir too That ODI loss in Hyderabad prevented Pakistan from winning ODI Series 6-0. Kha'Adir tied up his score and left the Indian winner by losing fewer turnstiles in an impossible and ultimately unnecessary second game. If he didn't take a single, Pakistan would have won a tie breaker that scored more goals than India after 25 overpasses.

He did not disappear after leaving the game, ironically stretched to the elbow by Mushtaq, the man he mentored. Both arms and mystery are released.

The meeting with Shane Warne in 1994 was a regular and generous mentor, but the new generation reminded me how important he was. Imran Tahir was a disciple and couldn't always see his eyes with Shahid Afridi, but he helped rediscover his mistakes even before Afridi came to Pakistan for the World T20 title.

It was when Qadir was the top selector of the PCB. There was no controversy. But through his academy, he continued to convey words of art that helped him survive.
