Javed Miandad was one of the best batsman Pakistan produced in their middle order. People feel that despite Inzamam and Yusuf having more runs than Javed still in class and temperament Javed was the best. He was a street smart cricketer and he used to play with the psyche of the players. Javed was the only cricketer and team mate of the great Imran Khan who had the courage and enigma to even stand against the decisions of Imran Khan. There is no other player except Javed who could have done it. The reason was the Imran Khan was a very successful captain in fact he has been titled as the best captain for Pakistan in the history. Misbah despite having more test wins than Imran still never got to that point to be compared with Imran Khan. Also the personality of Imran Khan was something which never knew surrender. So one can say Javed had a brave gene in him.

He was the captain of the Pakistan team on a tour to New Zealand in which a young and totally inexperienced Wasim Akram was included. This was the first time Wasim Akram played international cricket and he was impressive with his pace and hostile bowling. Javed Miandad was the captain of the Pakistan team in that tour and hence Wasim was hitting the bouncers at his will. The idea was to make the kiwi batters terrified of Wasim Akram and this thing did happen in that series as well. Wasim picked up a good number of wickets and from there onwards we know what happened to him and where he stands now as the best left arm pacer in the history of the game itself.

In New Zealand during the test series Wasim hit a series of bouncers and the umpire started interfering and that was the time when Javed jumped in as the captain and he started arguing with the umpire. He did not let Wasim stop bowling the bouncers. He kept hitting them to the batters. The umpire then warned Wasim and prohibited him from hitting bouncers. Now in those days there was no limit to bouncers and even six bouncers in an over was a normal thing. The West Indians used to do it all the time in test matches. The umpire and Javed had a heated argument and as a result the umpire started giving no balls every time Wasim hit a bouncer. Wasim was a youngster and he did not know what to do but Javed was with him all the time and he did not let Wasim stop there. Pakistani bowling was brilliant in that game and they won the series as well.
