Aged 18, Javed made a glorious debut with a century and soon after scored a double century in the same series to break George Headley's 47 year old record of the youngest player to score a double century. Javed was the youngest player to score 100 runs on his debut. He scored a century in his first appearance against India in the course of which he completed 1000 runs in 23 innings to become the second youngest to score 1000 runs at the age of 21 years and 26 days.

Javed Miandad played 124 Tests and has batted the most innings for a Pakistani (189). His aggregate of 8,832 Test runs is a Pakistan record, while his 23 centuries and 43 fifties were national records until broken recently by current Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq. Javed's Test career batting average of 52.57 puts him among the top flight of batsmen to have played international cricket, and he is one of only two batsmen in cricket history, the other being Herbert Sutcliffe, to maintain an average of above 50 throughout a career of more than 20 innings. He scored six double centuries which is the most by a Pakistani and 5th in the all-time list. His highest score was 280 not out versus India. Test cricket is the longest form of the sport of cricket. ... Inzamam-ul-Haq (born 3 March 1970) is a Pakistani cricketer. ... Herbert Sutcliffe (born November 24, 1894, Summerbridge, Harrogate, Yorkshire, England; died January 22, 1978, Cross Hills, Yorkshire, England) was arguably the greatest opening batsman in cricket history and undoubtedly one of the greatest players of any type the game has known. ...


Javed learned his craft as a youngster on the tough, blue-collar streets of Karachi, and not surprisingly his technique flew in the face of most cricket coaching textbooks. His unorthodox but distinctive square-on batting stance and equally unconventional split-handed grip never hindered him though.


Australasia Cup 1986

One of the highlights of Javed's career came during the Australasia Cup in 1986. The Pakistanis had managed to make it to the final, and were up against India. The Australasia Cup is a cricket tournament held every four years in Sharjah, UAE. It began in 1986, with Pakistan defeating India for the championship[1].

India batted first and scored 245 runs, leaving Pakistan with a required run rate of 4.92 per over.


Javed came in to bat at number 4, with the score at 39 for 2 wickets, and the required run rate had risen to 7 an over. With four runs required off the last ball, Javed smashed a six that sealed the victory for Pakistan.


Pakistan suddenly became considered as one of the best cricket playing countries in the world, and Javed Miandad became a hero.


His famous last ball six against India in Sharjah is still considered as one of the most historic moments in one-day cricket history. His amazing ability to work the ball in the places where fielders weren't present was appreciated very rightly by the great Viv Richards, who was once quoted saying, "If there was any batsman whom I could choose to bat for my life, it would be Javed Miandad." Sir Isaac Vivian Alexander Richards (born St Johns, Antigua on 7 March 1952), better known by his second name, Vivian or, more popularly, simply as Viv is a former West Indian cricketer. ...


Javed was also complimented by commentator and former New Zealand captain John Wright, who refused to concede victory to India, saying, "As long as Javed is there, anything can happen". Javed referred to this in his autobiography as, "One of the best compliments he has received in all his cricket years." John Wright may refer to: John Wright (cricketer) (born 1954), member of the New Zealand cricket team, coach of the Indian cricket team John Wright (inventor), an inventor of electroplating (method patented, 1840) John Wright (politician), New Zealand MP, 1996–2002 John C.

Controversies

Although a superb batsman with an excellent batting average, Javed was never far from controversies. Whether it was the controversial run out of Rodney Hogg, or the famous clash with Dennis Lillee, Javed Miandad always had controversies dogging him till the very end. His gritty and combative attitude led him into many infield and onfield scuffles which only increased the controversy. This though, had little impact on Miandad, who used it to spur him on to greater heights.


The same cannot be said of his coaching. His first term began in late 1998, during a period when Pakistani cricket was on its last legs due to politics and "superstars". He single-handedly changed the face of Pakistani team, which went from a joke to World Cup favourites, becoming a public favourite in the process. But, as it was, Miandad also had a celebrity attitude, creating conflicts with then senior players, and resigned just a few weeks before the 1999 Cricket World Cup. His second term began with in 2001, but he was neither as successful nor as influential as the last time, and was fired at a time which is considered the darkest period of Pakistani cricket, which continued till the 2003 Cricket World Cup, after which many players were fired and forced into retirement. That's when his third term as coach began. This time he had a supportive environment (albeit not without controversy), with 2 supporting captains (first Rashid Latif, then Inzamam-ul-Haq), but this time he lost to changing times and resigned to make way for the current coach, Bob Woolmer. The 1999 Cricket World Cup was held in England, Scotland and Netherlands and won by Australia. ... The 2003 Cricket World Cup (Official name: ICC Cricket World Cup 2003™) was played in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya from February 9 to March 24. ...
