Former wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif said Pakistan icon Saeed Anwar was such a “charismatic player”.
Having seen Anwar “from close quarters”, he admitted that the 53-year-old was a one-of-a-kind talent.
Anwar represented Pakistan in 55 Tests and scored 4,052 runs, which included 11 hundreds and 25 fifties, at an average of 45.52.
He also featured in 247 ODIs, where he amassed 8,824 runs, which included 20 centuries and 43 half-centuries, at an average of 39.21.
“I have seen him from close quarters and trust me, he was a charismatic player,” Latif said on Cricket Den’s YouTube channel as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.
