Former Pakistan spin great Abdul Qadir dies of cardiac arrest

Qadir was 63 years old and is survived by his wife, four sons and a daughter who is married to current Pakistan star batsman Umar Akmal. 

Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batsman, Kamran Akmal, Umar’s elder brother, confirmed about Qadir suffering a cardiac arrest and after being rushed to a hospital, was declared dead on arrival. 

Qadir, who played in 67 Tests and 104 ODIs had a total 368 wickets in his international career, would have celebrated his 64th birthday on 15th September. 

Cricket pundits and writers believe that Qadir’s biggest achievement was to keep the art of wrist spin alive during the eras of 70s and 80s when fast bowlers dominated world cricket.
