Ex-Kiwi pace man Morrison brands Pak legend Miandad 'street fighter'

Islamabad, Jan 2(ANI): Former New Zealand fast bowler Danny Morrison has branded legendary Pakistani batsman Javed Miandad as a street fighter and one of the toughest opponents he had faced in the cricket field.

Miandad was an integral part of the Pakistan team for more than two decades and helped the Green Shirts become a real force in international cricket, the Nation reports.

The 55-year-old former player represented his country in six consecutive ICC Cricket World Cups between 1975 and 1996.

Miandad scored more than 16 thousand runs at the highest stage of the game in an era, which was dominated by high-quality fast bowlers,

The former Kiwi cricketer showered praise on Miandad and feels that the gutsy batsman was one of the fiercest competitors he has ever faced.

Morrison said Miandad played like a street fighter with lots of guts and courage, adding that the current Director General of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), never look good on field due to his fierce attitude, but was very successful with his ways. (ANI)
