Re-incarnation of Sir Bradman through Zaheer Abbas was an honor but the most important is the style he has brought to the game of cricket. Inversely IMO it's his induction brought the distinction to the @ICC Hall of Fame. Many felicitation to Z. Abbas, J. Kallis & L. Sthalekar. pic.twitter.com/pq6J2y3FHT
