On this day in 1997, Saeed Anwar obliterated India's bowling attack to all parts of the ground in Chennai to get to the highest-ever individual score in one-day internationals at that point in time.

Pakistan, after opting to bat first, scored a whopping 327 in their 50 overs, thanks to Anwar's brilliance at the crease.

Interestingly, the second highest-score in the Pakistan's batting line-up was 39, which highlights Anwar's complete dominance at the crease.

Anwar had lost his opening batting partner Shahid Afridi at the crease fairly early but that didn't stop him from pushing the pedal on the scoring rate.

The left-hander was joined by Ramiz Raja, who scored a rather sedate 22 off 51 balls before getting cleaned up by Robin Singh.

Following the departure of Ramiz Raja, Anwar then paired up with Ijaz Ahmed to get the ball rolling. The left-hander continued with his spree of smacking fours and sixes, and in total there were 22 fours and five sixes, three of them off consecutive deliveries from Anil Kumble. 

In reply to Pakistan's 328, India were bowled out for 292 in 49.2 overs thanks to a five-wicket haul from Aqib Javed.
