Iqbal Qasim, born August 6, 1953, was one of the foremost left-arm spinners of his era, whose record speaks eloquently for his quality. Arunabha Sengupta takes a look at the career of the man who played under the shadow of Abdul Qadir most of his life, but ended with figures better than the legendary leg-spinner.

Bangalore 1987. It was an elementary error by the master strategist. The great Imran Khan had made a huge blunder.

A look at the pitch had somehow convinced him that it would be helpful to seamers. The legendary leggie, Abdul Qadir, had bowled 68 overs in the series capturing just four Indian wickets at 60.50 apiece. Imran had benched him and lanky left-arm pacer Salim Jaffer had been included in his place. In the end, like the fat slow schoolboy picked to make up the numbers, Jaffer did not bowl a single over and batted at No 11.

So, when Maninder Singh turned it square from the word go and picked up five wickets before lunch on the first day, the Indian fans sported wry smiles on their faces. Pakistan collapsed to 116 all out in less than 50 overs; the pitch was a minefield, and they had left out their best spinner.

Or had they?

Those were the days before the internet. Before cricket statistics were at the fingertips of all and sundry, available at one click of curiosity. Qadir had made headlines and had therefore turned a lot of heads. After all, he was worth plenty of column space — a leg-spinner who approached with a peculiar run up, who turned the ball immensely either way, and who had bamboozled the Englishmen multiple times. For obvious reasons he was far better known than his more sedate and orthodox compatriots.
