The condolence messages from all around the world are coming over the death of Abdul Qadir, the legendary leg spinner of Pakistan.
Abdul Qadir, the former Pakistani test cricketer was died yesterday due to the cardiac arrest. He took 236 wickets in 67 Test matches and 132 wickets in just 104 ODIs. Here are the reactions of some renowned personalities over his death.
Qadir's bowling statistics do not do justice to his genius. Had he been playing cricket now with the modern DRS system, where batsmen can be given out on the front foot as well, Qadir would have gotten as many wickets as the great Shane Warne.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) September 7, 2019
