Fazal Mehmood (1927-2005) was the greatest fast bowler in the 1950s world. See the first minute of the video.

He was a household name in the Commonwealth countries.

He was considered the most handsome man by millions of people around the globe.

With all his fame, attractiveness and wealth, he had a spotless character even as the IG Police of Punjab.

Eva Gardener was proud to dance with him in 1956 at Lahore and desired to marry him. So were many other Hollywood celebrities. But his life was free of all scandals.

Queen Elizabeth and her sister princess Margaret were his fans and invited him to royal parties 18 times.

Quaid-e-Azam M.A. Jinnah was his ideal personality.

As a young lady, Indira Gandhi reached up to him as a fan in cricket stadiums at Delhi and Lucknow. Her father, PM Nehru greeted him at Delhi.

Indian film industry tried to get him in the legendary movie AAN in preference to Dilip Kumar but he politely declined.

He was a great patriot and a Qur'an oriented Muslim.

And much more.
