When I'd play cricket as recreational I'd bowl leg-spin and it was really hard for me to get the line right

Off-spin was just extremely uncomfortable and awkward for me, I just couldn't impart spin with my fingers while rotating my arm. My off-spins were just chucks

I could have never gotten the hang of this bowling art. My mind, body, and soul could not find a way to have the courage to bowl.

For fear of permanently injuring my wrist.

Off-spin is my specialty.

Abdul Kadir was the best leg spinner that I have seen. His googlies were fatal for any batsman.

Warne is alright. Benefited great deal for being with the best team in world.

The same Abdul Kadir who played 4 test matches in his career?

No. Qadir (misspelled). 200+ wickets 100+ tests.

Oh, lol....strange coincidence...only last night I was reading up and researching about players from the past who shared special numbers between themselves...

Kadir's name popped up and I was spiked up by it...the great Pakistani player...disappointed when I saw the stats...

This is the thing. Back then when he came in to the scene there wasn't any good leg spinners in ANY test team. None. Zero. How can I say this, for years before that, we fans didn't know much about googly. It was something like reverse swing in the 80s and dusra/tisra nowadays. He changed the conception. We were mesmerized by his bowling action. He had a special kick to his delivery. If you can find a video... watch him. I am sure Warne as a kid had to take notice.

An inside story:
This one time Imran Khan went in a mission to concur the world. That world belonged to WI and Richards. It was a big build up. 3 test series. After first two test Pak was leading the series 1-0. 3rd test, final day Pakistan needed 2 wickets to win the series with pitch helping the spinners. with Abdul Qadir operating from one end...I can't remember the umpires. He had 9 lbws on the #10 batsman all denied. We listened through (BBC) radio. In those days Hosts would have their own umpires.
That is how my Favorite player retained the title "Viv - never lost series as a captain."

I rem watching lot of games involving Qadir. The myth about him is nobody could understand his grip. They tried to trace him through with zooming the camera on fingers - nothing revealed. Commentators will go on and on about his grip, every recess they will show a close shot to understand without much luck. Like now still batsmen cannot differentiate Fizz point of release.
