A great Test match spinner, I loved his quirky run-up, he was one of the best. Gone too soon, only 64, cardiac arrest apparently.

Gower'sv tribute on Sky was lovely. Qadir was before my time, so don't know much about him but Benaud certainly rated him.

A great leggie - reputedly better than Warne. As well as being a superb bowler, he was a sort-of academic on the subject. During his playing career, he had 2 sorts of googly and was working on a third when he retired from Test Match cricket. His best figures were 9-56 against England in 1987 in Lahore, his home town. He played for a couple of teams in Scotland, Stenhousemuir and Leith Links. I regret not seeing him there. He didn't run up to bowl, he bounced! According to the BBC, he was 63. A sad loss of a brilliant exponent of his art.
