MIANDAD, JAVED (1957- ) Javed Miandad-arguably the best batsman produced by Pakistan-made his debut in 1976 and scored a hundred in his very first test inning He went on to play for Pakistan for a period of two decades, over which his test batting average remarkably never fell below the magic figure of 50 One of the finest moments of his career, and that of Pakistan cricket, happened when he hit a six off the last ball of the Austral-Asia Cup final against India in 1986, resulting in a memorable and unexpected win for Pakistan He also played an important role with the bat in Pakistan’s World Cup victory in 1992 He captained Pakistan in 34 test matches-with considerable success-and importantly served as Imran Khan’s vice-captain in the highly successful period for Pakistan cricket from the mid 1980s through to the early 1990s He remained a consistent run scorer in the 1980s in both test and one-day cricket and was known for his ability to play gutsy innings under pressure He became the first Pakistani to play a hundred test matches and holds the record as the highest runscorer for Pakistan in test cricket After retirement, he had three short stints as coach of the Pakistan team with mixed results
