An unforgettable epic remains a six-off ball smashed against India by Pakistan’s former bailiff Javed Miandad.
The final ball six to defeat India in the Austral Asia Cup finals was struck by Javed Miandad on April 18, 1986.
Three times were played in the Austral-Asian Cup, with Pakistan winning the tournament.
The first edition was played in 1986, while the second in 1990 and the third in 1994.
#OnThisDay in 1986, Pakistan earned their first victory in a major tournament by lifting the Austral-Asia Cup.

For Pakistan to win the tournament, four runs were needed. By standing out of his pit, Miandad had decided to turn pressure on Chetan Sharma, 18-year-old Indian pacer.
Chetan Sharma was going to the Yorker, but Miandad was calmly hit by a full jerk for a 6-year-old.
India had a score of 245 while batting, Kris Srikkanth took 75 runs and Sunil Gavaskar recorded 94 runs from 134 balls. Wasim Akram has taken three wickets for Pakistan.
