    Why does no one mention Abdul Qadir?

    Most People On Pakpssion Love To Talk About Ajmal Doing well Currently, Or maybe The Legacy Of Saqlain Mushtaq Or Mushtaq Ahmad. I Belive Qadir Was A Great Spinner But No One Ever Mentions Him.

    Is It Because The Others Are Better? Or Is He Under-Rated?

    I Have Always Been Baffled By This


    you cant have success until you fail that is why Pakistan is in a great position

    I think you should start talking to adults.

    Qadir is a legitimate spin legend acknowledged by fellow greats, even Richie Benaud and Chappell like old folks. I heard he had more variety than Shane Warne, that's saying something. On top of everything, he's been a role model after retirement. Always gives great interviews. I just love listening to him. Some great stories.

    He is not under rated .... just because he is not talked about does not mean he was not good. There are many great players not talked about here.

    There was a World XI picking happening in year 2000. Great old players were on the panel. Qadir was not o the list of players to be picked. When the category of spinners was being decided, Dickie Bird gave his vote for Warne, but he also said, since Qadir was not on the list hence he had no option but to pick Warne. Otherwise Qadir was head and shoulders above al of them,

    Most players of that ear were under-rated arring a few, because it was not as commercial a game as it is now. They would give lifetime performances, bowl a ball of the century, but quitely go back to the bowling line-up to deliver the next ball. The batsmen would hit unbeleivable shots, but would show no emotions whatsoever. Today, when someone hits a four he just goes ape, same thing with bowlers, they take a wicket on ordinary balls and the celeberations would start like there is no tomorrow. It is more hyped these days, but trust me, today;s cricketers are no match against the greats of days gone by,

    Abdul Qadir started the revival of legspin bowling when it was dying a slow death.

    Dickie Bird, one of the greatest Umpires of all time, picks Abdul Qadir ahead of Shane Warne as the best spinner he has seen.
    Umpire Dickie Bird picks his best players that he saw during his lengthy career that spanned from the 1960s to the 1990s. Amongst the batsman he picks Barry Richards Viv Richards and David Gower. He selects Garry Sobers as the best ever allrounder amongst Kapil Dev Botham and Imran Khan. The best bowlers he saw included Dennis Lillee rated as the best Fred Trueman and the deadly accurate Andy Roberts. The best ever spinner? Abdul Qadir was the best ever followed by Derek Underwood and Shane Warne. The best fielding was done by the likes of Viv Richards in the World Cup final 1975 Harper running out Gooch and Alan Knott as the best ever keeper.

    yes i saw him play in the 80's too and there is no doubt that he is the greatest spinner in cricket history and a real pioneer. i think the remarkable thing is that he took his wickets at a time when umpires were unkind to give lbw's to spinners but he is clearly in the pantheon of cricketing legends. was a little under used in Odi's but then there wasnt that much cricket going on.

    i saw an interview with Botham who met him a few years ago and reckoned he still had that zip and sharpness after all these years perhaps comes from running his academy. He has done a few stints on Radio 4 LW tms also and amazing how much cricket knowledge he has.

    A real patriot and a real gem, hopefully he will be part of the PCB set up at some point.

    The majority of the people on Pakpassion are under 30 and as such their earliest cricketing memories are 1992 world cup, Waqar, Wasim, Miandad, Saeed Anwar, Saqi and Mushi.

    Qadir was just a bit before that time. But whever you speak to the older generation they speak very highly of Qadir.

    I think one player not mentioned enough because none of us got to see him at all or much of him. Obviously I can't say much but from clips I have seen, the variations he had at the time were impressive. Loved his action, also others who played with him have spoken highly of him.

    Our spin department has declined now. No spinners near the levels of. Qadir, Saq, Mushy, Afridi, Ajmal/



    Alexis Sanchez. Theo Walcott. Azhar Ali. Haris Sohail. Fawad Alam. Orochimaru.
