Biography: Saeed Anwar, born on 6th September 1968 in Karachi, Pakistan, was a stylish and elegant left-handed opening batsman. He is regarded as one of Pakistan’s finest cricketers and one of the best opening batsmen in ODI history.

Anwar made his ODI debut in 1989 and soon became a key member of the Pakistan team. He played 247 ODIs and 55 Test matches for his country. His elegant stroke-play and impeccable timing made him a joy to watch at the crease.

During his career, Saeed Anwar scored 20 ODI centuries and 11 Test centuries, making him one of the most prolific centurions in both formats. He also registered 43 half-centuries in ODIs and 14 in Test cricket.

Anwar faced nervous nineties on 5 occasions in ODIs and 2 occasions in Test matches but managed to convert most of them into memorable hundreds.

Although primarily a batsman, Saeed Anwar also bowled occasional off-spin, claiming 7 wickets in ODIs.

He had a brief stint as Pakistan’s captain, leading the team in 5 ODIs and 3 Test matches.
