Cricket is a passion in Pakistan! Today, I pay tribute to the legendary cricketer extraordinaire – the one and only, Javed Miandad sahab. His career and achievements need no introduction.The magic of Javed sahab’s last ball six against arch-rivals India in Sharjah still lives on. An integral part of Pakistan’s World Cup winning squad of 1992 – words aren’t enough to describe the glory his career has brought to Pakistan. I am grateful for the privilege of knowing Javed sahab off the pitch. He is friends with an uncle and is undoubtedly one of the most down to earth human beings I have known. He is a true friend and showers love and affection upon everyone around him. This is a small attempt on my part to say thank you to Javed sahab – we will forever be grateful to him for his stellar contributions to cricket and our country. I invite you come forward and extend your appreciation to this #LivingLegend. Javed sahab, aap sada khush rahain, salaamat rahain, aabaad rahain. Pakistan kay liyay aap ki khidmaat ka bayhad shukriya. #PakistaniHeroes #LivingLegends

Very few sportspersons in Pakistan have redefined their sport not only at home but also aboard like the legendary Jahangir Khan to whom I pay tribute to today. The list of Jahangir sahab’s achievements is endless. This #LivingLegend has won the World Open six times, and the British Open ten times. He was President of the World Squash Federation after which the post of ‘Emeritus President’ was created for him – an office he holds to this very day. In my few meetings with him, his grace has surprised me. Someone who has seen so much success over the decades and still holds records that haven’t been broken, and is yet so humble. It is all due to Jahangir Khan and later Jansher Khan, that Pakistan’s position in the world of Squash was unmatched for several decades. Thank you, Khan sahab – for me you personify an ideal combination of unmatched skill and immense determination. Your everlasting legacy is and will remain a gift for Pakistan. I invite you share your tributes to this sporting great which I hope he accepts as our token of gratitude for his contribution to the country. #jahangirkhan #LivingLegends #PakistaniHeroes
