Mr. Saeed Anwar is a Pakistani former cricketer and a former captain for Tests and ODIs. An opening batsman and occasional slow left arm orthodox bowler, Mr. Saeed Anwar played international cricket between 1989 and 2003. Considered as one of greatest opening batsmen Pakistan has ever produced, Anwar has scored twenty centuries in ODIs, more than any other Pakistani batsmen in this format.

Wisden Cricketer of the Year – 1977
An opening batsman capable of annihilating any bowling attack on his day, Mr. Saeed Anwar was an attacking batsman in ODI matches and once settled in Test Matches, scored quickly and all over the field. His success came from good timing. Mr. Saeed Anwar became famous for his trademark flick. He was able to lift a ball that had pitched outside off stump for six over midwicket. Anwar’s timing and ability to score quick runs made him a crowd favourite. In 1997, when he was as one of the Wisden Cricketer of the Year, the cricket almanack Wisden described him that he “moved his front foot and head well across, then his wrists hovered, hawk-like, over the advancing ball, extending further and further as if they were elastic if the ball was slanted ever more away from him, before the bat flowed into a square-drive to the boundary”
