Tauseef Ahmed and Lionel Richie

Tauseef Ahmed is Pakistan off-spinner who played in 34 Tests and 74 One-Day Internationals between 1980 and 1993. He could have played a lot more, but he had to compete with the likes of Abdul Qadir and Iqbal Qasim in a very strong Pakistani bowling attack. He secured a place in the hearts of his countrymen when he played a major role in Pakistan’s famous 16-run win over India at Bangalore in 1986-87, when he and Qasim Iqbal took nine wickets each. Pakistan won the match and with it the series 1-0.

Lionel Richie is an American singer who sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. Richie has won four Grammy Awards including Song of the Year in 1985 for “We Are the World” which he co-wrote with Michael Jackson.

Tauseef Ahmed’s resemblance to Lionel Richie is very striking — including the fuzzy Afro hair.
