Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad smacked a final ball six off Chetan Sharma’s bowling in 1986 that led Pakistan to beat India in the final of the Austral-Asia Cup at jam-packed Sharjah.
However, interestingly former pacer Wasim Akram has revealed that it was his bat that the great Miandad used when he hit the winning six.
“Some moments are etched in your memory and hit that epic six against India at Sharjah is one of them. It’s a piece of cricket beauties. Whenever you watch it, it gives you real joy and tells how great a batsman he was. By the way, the bat from which that six was hit was mine,” Akram tweeted.
