Articles about Javed Miandad
A young prodigy who went on to become the most talented batsman to ever play for Pakistan. And the most exhilarating player to play for Pakistan. No superlatives are enough to describe former cricketer Javed Miandad, who always had shots to play when it was time to win. Abdul Hafeez Kardar, Pakistan's first Test captain, after seeing Miandad in the '70s, described him as the find of the decade. He made his ODI debut against West Indies in 1975 and Test debut in 1976 against New Zealand. On his Test debut, he scored a century. In the third Test of that series, however, he scored a double-hundred and became the youngest player to score a double-hundred in Tests. Miandad had the unique achievement of never letting his average fall below 50. Miandad led Pakistan in 34 Tests, losing only six of them. Before Younis Khan broke his record, he had the most runs for Pakistan in Test cricket. Miandad's ODI career was as glittering as his Test career. His performance against arch-rival India can be put into perspective by the last ball six against Chetan Sharma in the Austral-Asia Cup final in Sharjah in 1986. Miandad was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame in 2009.
