Javed Miandad

A legend in his own right, Javed Miandad is one of the best batsman Pakistan has produced. Any mention of him brings to me 2 memories:

  • His frog jumps in trying to mimic Kiran More in the '92 World Cup in Australia - still brings on a smile

  • His last ball six off Chetan Sharma in '86 that brought victory to Pakistan in Sharjah - am yet to come to terms with it; given Chetan was my hero back then (more because one of our neighbours thought I bolwed like him! :) )

And thats exactly what happened today when I read of his now-completed autobiography, "The Cutting Edge".

True to his style on the field, off the field, Javed never minced words, even when it ruffled more than a few feathers back home. And his performance sure ensured a place for him amongst the best cricketeers that has played.
