In Tests, he bowled 1470 deliveries, taking 17 wickets with his right-arm medium pace. He also got seven ODI wickets. But the most famous moment in his not so fascinating bowling career came during a Test match against Australia in 1983/84.

And here are some fan reactions, mostly hailing Miandad's confidence.

For the record, the 62-year-old once turned up with a sword to threaten India over the Kashmir issue.

Claiming to show solidarity with the Kashmiris, Miandad, while wearing the Pakistan cricket team's one-day jersey, is seen in the video saying if he can play with a bat and hit sixes, he can also wield a sword.

"Kashmiri brothers don't worry. We are with you. Earlier I used a bat to hit a six, now I can use this sword," Miandad said in the video while brandishing a sword.

"Balle se chakka maar sakta hu, talwar se insaan (If I can hit a sixer with a bat, can't I kill a man with a sword)," the former Pakistan captain added.
