Former England captain Nasser Hussain heaped praise on legendary Pakistan opener Saeed Anwar, saying that he was “such an elegant player”.
His comments 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.
