Abdul Qadir dead

The cricketing world is shocked by the sudden demise of Pakistan spin maestro Abdul Qadir at the age of 63. He passed away due to cardiac arrest and the entire cricket world is mourning for him, Legends like Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis have tweeted about his loss.

Abdul Qadir’s son Salman Qadir confirmed the demise of the iconic cricketer. The former cricketer was moved to Services Hospital after the heart attack but he could not survive as per Dawn. “My father never had a heart problem so it was sudden and shocking that he suffered a severe attack and could not survive,” Salman told AFP.

Qadir, who would have turned 64 on September 15, was one of favourites of former captain Imran Khan — now Pakistan’s prime minister. “I am sad to hear about Qadir’s death,” Khan said in a message. “With his death I have lost a close friend and a team-mate and that’s hurtful.

Legendary Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne — the second highest Test wicket taker with 708 (only behind Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan’s 800) — was also a big fan of Qadir. Commentating for Sky Sports during the fourth Ashes Test between England and Australia, Warne said Qadir was a “brilliant, brilliant bowler.”

“I had the opportunity to meet him in 1994 on my first tour to Pakistan,” the Australian was quoted as saying by Reuters. “I think a lot of people who bowled leg-spin, like I did, he was the guy who we looked up to in the eighties. He was the main leg-spinner in that era. “He was a terrific bowler who bamboozled a lot of batsmen. His record is a terrific one.”

Cricketer Kamran Akmal, too confirmed the demise of Abdul Qadir, according Geo TV.
