Former Pakistan captain and all-rounder Saeed Ahmed died on Wednesday, March 20 in Lahore at the age of 86, following a brief illness. Ahmed played 41 Tests for Pakistan between 1958 and 1973, scoring 2991 runs at an average of 40.41.

Saeed Ahmed, the former Pakistan captain, died on Wednesday at the age of 86 in Lahore following a brief illness, according to the ICC. From 1958 until 1973, Saeed played 41 Tests for Pakistan, earning 2991 runs at an average of 40.41. During his career, the all-rounder scored five century, three of which came against India. He made his Pakistan debut against the West Indies when he was 20 years old. During the innings, Ahmed and Hanif Mohammad shared a 154-run stand for the third wicket, with Ahmed making a half-century (65) on debut.

Syed Mohsin Raza Naqvi, chief of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), issued a statement expressing his sympathies to the former cricketer’s family.

“The PCB is deeply grieved by the passing of one of our former Test captains and extends its heartfelt condolences to Saeed Ahmed’s family. The ICC reported Naqvi as saying, “He served Pakistan with all his heart, and the PCB honours his record and services for the Test team.

He also replaced Hanif Mohammed as captain for three Tests against England in 1969, all of which were drawn. The former captain was also an effective off-spinner, taking 22 wickets over his career.
