Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar had batted against South Africa in the first double century of ODI cricket history in 2010, but Pakistani team batsman Saeed Anwar had reached very close to raising the double hundred 13 years ago.
Saeed Anwar had played 194 runs in ODIs against India in 1997, after which he was caught out in the round to complete the double century by hitting six. Although his score was making the biggest individual score of one-day cricket for 12 years.
Saeed Anwar had scored a Test hundred in 2001 after missing the double century in ODIs, but only after this match he said goodbye to Test cricket.
In fact, after this match, his daughter Bismah died at the age of three and a half years. After this incident, Saeed Anwar had made a distance from Test cricket and his religious orientation also increased.
After making the distance from the Test, Saeed Anwar would play a few matches at some time, but after the daughter's death, there was no particular interest in the game. After playing in the 2003 World Cup, Saeed Anwar called the cricket world goodbye forever.
