Former Australia batsman Dean Jones admitted that iconic Pakistan opener Saeed Anwar was an amazing striker of the ball.
Jones’ praise came after Anwar smashed a career-best 194 in an ODI against India on this day in 1997.
Anwar’s superb 194, which came off 146 balls and included 22 boundaries and five sixes, led Pakistan to a 35-run win over their arch-rivals.

He also featured in 247 ODIs, where he scored 8,824 runs, which included 20 centuries and 43 half-centuries, at an average of 39.21.
