Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday paid rich tribute to legendary wrist-spinner Abdul Qadir, who died of cardiac arrest a day earlier, terming him a "genius".

Taking to Twitter, the premier said he was deeply saddened to hear of the former leg-spin maestro's demise, and sent out his prayers and condolences to the deceased's family.

"Abdul Qadir was a genius, one of the greatest leg spinners of all time," Prime Minister Imran wrote of his former teammate, adding that Qadir was the "life of the dressing room" who used to entertain the players with his wit and humour.

Likening him to legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne, 1992 World Cup-winning captain said Qadir's bowling statistics would have been different had he been playing the sport in the current age with the modern Decision Review System (DRS).

"Qadir's bowling statistics do not do justice to his genius. Had he been playing cricket now with the modern DRS system, where batsmen can be given out on the front foot as well, Qadir would have gotten as many wickets as the great Shane Warne."
