Former Indian cricketer reveals how his career got ruined by incident with Javed Miandad

Former Indian wicket-keeper Kiran More recently opened up about the intense India-Pakistan rivalry and how the Javed Miandad run-in in 1992 overshadowed his playing career.

In a live chat with Sportskeeda’s Indranil Basu on Friday, More recalled the India-Pakistan rivalry which, back in the day, used to be just as intense as it is today.

More opened up about his infamous sledging incident with Pakistan legend Javed Miandad, which worked up the former Men in Green skipper so much that he started doing ‘bunny jumps’ on the pitch.

“Pakistan-India is always on field a big battle. Off the field we have no issues at all. Javed loves to talk, he’s an outstanding cricketer. Sledging is always on the field. It happens in all fields. It’s become a lot more popular,” said More.

The wicket-keeper had invited the wrath of Miandad for chirping a tad too much from behind the stumps and for appealing incessantly. Despite the Pakistani taking it to the umpire, More was in no mood to tone down.

More reflected on the incident and said that it often overshadows his other achievements.

“No one talks about my world record 6 dismissals in one Test match. Everyone asks only about the Miandad incident,” More concluded.
