‘I remember my father after every achievement’ Usman Qadir


DERBY: Leg-spinner Usman Qadir said he always remembers his late father and Pakistan’s legendary spinner, Abdul Qadir, after achieving each milestone. 

Speaking in Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s podcast, Usman said he feels like there is an extra responsibility on him to carry his late father’s legacy in international cricket.

“I feel like having an extra responsibility to carry my father’s legacy. I miss him so much and I always remember him after achieving every milestone,” he said.

“Overwhelmed on getting PCB’s central contract. It is a proud moment for me, my family, and my father. My father always wanted me to play for Pakistan and I missed him so much on this occasion,” he added.

Moving forward, Usman aims to make a permanent spot in the national team and advance in the central contracts category by performing. “Every player wants improvement so do I. There is a lot of hard work behind and I hope to make the most of every single opportunity that comes my way. My aim is to perform, make a permanent place in national team and advance in central contracts category through performance,” he concluded.
