Wisden Obituary
Abdul Kadir, who died in Karachi on March 12, 2002, aged 57, was a Test wicketkeeper who took no catches but made his mark with the bat. One of six new players picked by Pakistan for the one-off Test against Australia at Karachi in October 1964, the 20-year-old Kadir combined with his fellow-debutant "Billy" Ibadulla to add 249, the best at the time for any Pakistan wicket and a first-wicket record until 1997-98. Ibadulla made 166, Kadir was run out for 95. His stumping of Tom Veivers two days later would remain his only Test dismissal. When the sides met again at Melbourne five weeks later, Kadir's thumb was broken as he edged Graham McKenzie to slip in the first over. In the second innings he batted at No. 7 and made 35 in a 46-run stand with his captain, Hanif Mohammad, who was having quite a match - as well as scoring 104 and 93, he kept wicket in Kadir's place and took five catches. By the time Pakistan moved on to New Zealand, Naushad Ali was wearing the gloves. Kadir played his next, and last, two Tests as a batsman, scoring 46 and nought and then, back as opener, 12 and 58 (in five and a quarter hours). In 36 first-class games over 11 seasons he scored 1,523 runs at 28.73 with one century: 114 for Karachi Whites against Karachi Blues in the 1963-64 Quaid-e-Azam final. He finished with 46 catches and 13 stumpings.
