Former captains Fazal Mahmood and Abdul Qadir have been inducted into the PCB Hall of Fame posthumously. The two stalwarts have joined Hanif Mohammad, Imran Khan, Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Zaheer Abbas, who were the initial inductees to the PCB Hall of Fame by virtue of being part of the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.

Fazal and Qadir were inducted following a voting process.

The PCB Cricket Committee was involved in finalising the short-list comprising players who were retired from international cricket for, at least, five years. A 13-person independent voting panel, comprising three ICC Cricket Hall of Famers, four former Pakistan captains and six respected members of the print and electronic media, was constituted to take part in the voting process.

Born on 18 February 1927 in Lahore, Mehmmod took 139 wickets in 34 Tests from 1952 to 1962.

Abdul Qadir took 236 wickets (five wickets in an innings 15 times and 10 wickets in a match five times) and scored 1,029 runs in 67 Tests from 1977 to 1990. He was born on 15 September 1955 in Lahore.
