Former Pakistan leg-spinner Abdul Qadir passes away aged 63

Former Pakistan leg-spinner, Abdul Qadir, aged 63, passed away after a cardiac arrest on Friday.

Qadir played 67 Tests and 104 ODIs between 1977 and 1993 and was known as one of the best leg-spinners of all time.

Known for having multiple variations in his arsenal, Qadir was renowned for his superb performances against a strong West Indies side. One of his career-highlight remained the 30 wickets he picked in a three-match Test series against England in 1987.

Post-retirement, Qadir served as chief selector of the Pakistan team and also owned a private cricket academy near Gaddafi Stadium.

"PCB is shocked at the news of 'maestro' Abdul Qadir's passing and has offered its deepest condolences to his family and friends," said PCB in a tweet.
