29 years have passed, but still it’s the most famous last ball six in cricket history. The six saddened the Indian camp, whereas Pakistan team was celebrating that night. The man of the moment was none other than Javed Miandad, who smashed last ball six to Indian bowler Chetan Sharma to win Austral-Asia Cup Final.
It was 4 runs required of the last bowl, Mianadad smashed the ball for a six. Gavaskar and Vengeskar also played some brilliant knock in this match, but Miandad’s scintillating 116 notout of 114 balls fainted Indian show.
