Javed Miandad, the former Pakistan cricketer is arguably one of the best batsmen that the Men in Green country has ever produced in its cricketing history. But, he is still not treated equivalent to his worth by many people in his country. Recently, in a talk show, Shahzad Iqbal did mimicry of the former player in a hilarious way. And, it didn’t go down well with Miandad, who has given a strong warning to the YouTube channel and his impersonator.
The former World Cup winner donned national jersey in 124 Tests and 233 ODIs in which he gathered more than 16,000 runs across all the format with 31 tons and 93 half-centuries. He holds several accolades to his name and Miandad has won many games for Pakistan during his time in international cricket. Once in a game against India, he smacked a last-ball six in order to help his side register a victory against their arch-rivals.
‘Mimicry should be done in a decent manner’: Javed Miandad
Recently, in a talk show, Shahzad Iqbal did mimicry of the former player Javed Miandad in a build-up to Pakistan Super League 2020. It was done in a funny fashion that was not liked by the former batsman. Now, the 62-year-old has released a clip in which he looks quite angry over the same.
The former said that he had done so much for the country and has always supported them in good and bad times. As per him, the mimicry should be done in a decent manner and at least his name should not be taken directly. It certainly promotes a false image of a player which is quite wrong. Even, he recited that if the talk show continued with the same, then he might take legal action against them.
“I have done so much for my country. I have always supported my country. The mimicry should be done in a decent manner, and my name should not be taken directly as it can promote a false image. I will take legal measures if the attacks persist,” the former Pakistani batting maestro said,” Javed Miandad said in the clip.
Here is the clip:
