Javed Miandad, a former Pakistani captain, celebrates his 65th birthday today. He was widely regarded as one of Pakistan’s most accomplished cricketers.

The renowned cricketer amassed 8832 Test runs and 7381 ODI runs during his career.

Throughout his career, his Test average never fell below 50. He was the first Pakistani player to appear in each of the first six Cricket World Cups.

Under the captaincy of Imran Khan, the 65-year-old cricketer was a part of the historic occasion when Pakistan won the World Cup for the first time in 1992.

Miandad has a long list of accomplishments. He became the youngest batsman in history to score a double century. When he reached the milestone, the right-handed batsman was only 19 years old. In 1976, he scored 206 runs in a match against New Zealand. He hit 29 fours and two sixes in his inning.

He also holds the record for the most consecutive half-centuries in a career (nine). He had four fifties against England, three against India, and one each against Australia and Sri Lanka during his run.

In the first Test against New Zealand in 1976, Miandad became the second Pakistani cricketer to get a century on debut.

On the field, he is noted for his tough demeanour. Miandad was regularly seen making comments regarding Indian players during the match between India and Pakistan.

Throughout his career, Miandad was known for his verbal sparring.

He once astonished the globe by imitating the bowling movement of Australian bowler Dannis Lillee.

He retired from international football in 1996 following a disappointing showing at the World Cup that year. He has coached the national squad on several occasions and served in crucial roles at the PCB.
