Wasim the bearded poet

Gideon Haigh pays tribute to Wasim Raja. For those of us that saw Wasim Raja bat during that ill-fated Pakistan tour of India in 1979-80, Haigh's comments come as no surprise. Raja was a beautiful bat, and the only cricketer that I've heard described as a poet. His dismissal for 93 at Delhi, and his unbeaten 97 at Kanpur were true heartbreaks for me. Thanks for the memories Wasim.
