PM Imran pays tribute to deceased Abdul Qadir


Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday paid rich tribute to legendary wrist-spinner Abdul Qadir — who died of cardiac arrest a day earlier — terming him a “genius” and one of the greatest leg spinners of all time. Cricket hero-turned-politician Imran and Qadir had a long and eventful association as teammates. Taking to Twitter, the premier said he was deeply saddened to hear of the former leg-spin maestro’s demise, and sent out his prayers and condolences to the deceased’s family. “Abdul Qadir was a genius, one of the greatest leg spinners of all time,” Prime Minister Imran wrote of his former teammate, adding that Qadir was the “life of the dressing room” who used to entertain the players with his wit and humour.
