One of the best opener in the history of cricket and a recognizable figure in Pakistan cricket, Saaed Anwar played several memorable innings during his career. This list includes his Test and ODI centuries and I believe that the list is according to the FL criteria. As always, comments, suggestions and questions will be appreciated.

Any image for the lede?
No free image at Commons, sorry.
"His highest score of 194, the highest ODI score by a Pakistan batsman" same words, perhaps change it up
"Anwar played 55 Test matches for Pakistan and made 4,052 runs. In 247 ODI matches, he scored 8,824 runs." not keen on two such short choppy sentences. Can you merge?
Merged the sentences into a single one.
"predisposition to front-foot play" not really sure what relevance this has to the 100s list. A non-expert may not even understand what this means, could even be a bad thing!
"Pakistan.As of October " space before "As..."
"ninth" actually ninth equal with Asif Iqbal.
"against the West Indies at the the WACA Ground, Perth," could include that it was in the World Series to explain why it wasn't a World Cup match and wasn't in either Pakistan or the West Indies...?

"Saeed Anwar is a retired Pakistani cricketer, and a former captain of the Pakistan national cricket team." sentence could be worded better, perhaps "Saaed Anwar is a former cricketer and captain of the Pakistan national cricket team."
"In 1997, when he was named as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year, the cricket almanack Wisden noted his "rapid run-scoring". not keen on sentences starting "In..." there is another one that starts like that too, so would change both
"Anwar made his Test debut against the West Indies in a match in which he got a pair..." think you could do with explaining what a pair is for those who are not familiar with cricket
I think this is not necessary because I've already linked this to the main article.
It is necessary because this list caters to a global audience. Therefore, as this is supposed to be our best work, they should be able to read it, without wondering what something meant. Keep the wikilink, but instead of having pair as the link, pipe it to the explanation of the term. NapHit (talk) 13:35, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

I've already told you that I can't do this, in fact I don't understand how to make a request or upload images from other cites. I'll appeciate if you or anyone want to do this. ZiaKhan 15:21, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
"Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium, in 1993" needs to be fixed —Vensatry(Ping me) 16:33, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
I've fixed this according to your suggestion, although there was no problem with this sentence. ZiaKhan 05:27, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
Ummm, you ought to understand the usage of commas, dashes and semi-colons —Vensatry(Ping me) 06:42, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
I understand them sufficiently. ZiaKhan 15:13, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
Then you shouldn't commit the same mistakes repeatedly —Vensatry(Ping me) 17:04, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
There is no mistake. I think Gaint2008 is dealing with grammar, he didn't mention that. ZiaKhan 17:16, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
┌────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘There are chances where reviewers might have missed a few glitches. That doesn't make everything right —Vensatry(Ping me) 03:40, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Little chance to miss that when 3 to 4 English-speakers are reviewing. ZiaKhan 04:14, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Surprised that none of the English speakers pointed out sentences like "Anwar shared Man of the Match" and ""record for the most runs" —Vensatry(Ping me) 06:39, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
I don't warrant that I'll catch every issue in an article or list while reviewing it, and I don't think any of the other FAC/FLC reviewers do either. We all do the best that we can, and collectively we usually do a pretty good job. However, I often find fresh issues after several editors have reviewed something, and people find issues with work that I've reviewed. This is normal and shows that we all look for different things. Oh, and I'm not FLC's official grammar guy; there are plenty of people better than myself at spotting issues. Let's focus on fixing the issues pointed out; it looks like at least the Man of the Match one has been taken care of already. Giants2008 (Talk) 17:54, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
I'm not complaining about anybody. I was just trying to explain Sahara4u, that reviewers (include myslef) miss a few issues —Vensatry(Ping me) 20:12, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Link Anwar in the image
"Anwar shared Man of the Match" -> Anwar shared the Man of the Match
"record for the most runs" -> record for the most runs
There is a formatting error in ref #2 (General ref)
"The record was equalled by Charles Coventry" -> score was equalled by Charles Coventry, since 194* is statistically better
Dates and publisher missing in Ref #19
The publisher of the newspaper is "Pakistan Herald Publications Limited (PHPL)" —Vensatry(Ping me) 06:21, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
His score of 194 runs, the highest by a Pakistan batsman, was made against India at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, in 1997.[N 3]. Refs cluttered. No need for three references conveying the same fact
10 cricket grounds -> Ten cricket grounds. Being a comparative figure this should be made consistent
"He scored three consecutive centuries", "His score of 194 runs", "He scored all of his twenty ODI centuries" and "As of October 2012, he is the leading". There is too much usage of the pronoun he in all the above mentioned sentences that explain his ODI career. Consider re-writing them. —Vensatry(Ping me) 16:33, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
I understand c/e, what type of copy-edit you want from me? ZiaKhan 17:39, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
"Overall among all-time" looks weak to me —Vensatry(Ping me) 03:43, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Then, what should that be? ZiaKhan 04:14, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Dunno why you're not keen in adding the "Test" column in the table —Vensatry(Ping me) 06:48, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
This is not necessary, I've already this in the references. ZiaKhan 15:09, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
I strongly feel that's necessary since this is considered to be the best of our work and similar lists have that. One cannot go and check the individual refs each time to know which test it is —Vensatry(Ping me) 17:03, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
Done! Don't know why are you strongly feel this because this is not very important. ZiaKhan 22:23, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
I'm emphasizing more on that since that column finds a place in every other list apart from the ones created by you —Vensatry(Ping me) 03:40, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
None of the reviewer felt so strongly about the column in those lists. See their comments there, also. ZiaKhan 04:14, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
NapHit suggested that recently while I was working with the Lillee Hayden list and since every other list uses this should also comply with them —Vensatry(Ping me) 06:39, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Just to note I didn't suggest adding the column as it was already there, but I do think it is useful. NapHit (talk) 14:09, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Usually we don't have this column in fifers' list. I know that you didn't and the only reason I've added this is because this is useful. I don't know what Vensatry wants? ZiaKhan 15:31, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
┌────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘First of all this isn't a fifer list. We are dealing with centuries list. I can see that column in every list–Sachin, Dravid, Ganguly, Lara, Viv Richards, Strauss, Trescothick. Only lists created by Sahara4u doesn't include that column —Vensatry(Ping me) 20:12, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Things may be changed since those FLCs. ZiaKhan 22:27, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
"in a ODI innings" ->in an ODI innings —Vensatry(Ping me) 04:00, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
This should be read as "a One Day International" since I've already explained this in the first para. If you have more concerns summarize them together, please. ZiaKhan 04:28, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
