Javed Miandad goes down in history as one of the greatest batsmen to play the game. His sumptuous drives and nifty wristwork affords him a special place in the cricketing echelons. While Miandad’s cricketing excellence knows no limits, another facet of his on-field character made him a likable figure in the sporting arena.
The former Pakistan skipper was known for being an animated person not shy of expressing his emotions on the field during his playing days. This also included him displaying his humour, which is exemplified in an old clip that has recently gone viral over the internet.
In the brief footage from a Test match in the 1980s, Miandad can be seen imitating some of his peers’ bowling styles while delivering the ball to the batsmen. He employs exaggerated caricatures of Rodney Hogg, Dennis Lillee and Bob Willis in the short clip, much to the laughter from the audience.
