    RIP! Was definitely among the top 10 spinners in the 80’s. Really disturbing news. Way too early to go.

    Very sad loss .To me posessed more natural talent or wizardry than even Shane Warne.No spinner was ever more of a magician as Qadir who took artistry in leg-spin to another dimension.Foxed batsmen like no spinner did and a major architect of some of Pakistan's most famous victories like at Lords in 1982,at the Oval in 1987 and at Faisalabad v West Indies in 1986.His bowling was also a revelation in the 1987 Reliance cup.He would have been responsible for Pakistan winning its 1st series on West Indies soil in 1988 but for some dubious umpiring decisions on the final day of the Barbados test which robbed Pakistan of the title of the unofficial world test champions.In his day in certain condition seven more lethal than Imran Khan.Even Viv Richards struggled to pick him.Qadir would simply set up a web around batsmen.At his best I find it hard to visualize a spinner who could rip through the heart of a strong batting line up.Statistic did him scant justice .Very hard to envisage another Abdul Qadir born again.With as much support as Shane Warne got he could have been the best of all leg-spinners.

    Warne may have spun or bounced the ball more,Bishen Bedi was more artistic but none to me as deceptive whose googly was simply unreadable.Significant that English umpire veteran chose Abdul Qadir in his all-time xi instead of Shane Warne.

    He played a major role Pakistan being metamorphasized or knitted into a world beating team in the 1980's.Qadir was also a more than useful batsmen if you remember the 14 run she scored against Courtney Walsh in the 1987Reliance World cup cup,which won a cliff-hanger.Also scored a handy 41 against New Zealnd in the 1983 prudential world cup.

    Above all a very lively and positive human being who always had a goof word to say about anyone.
