LAHORE – On this day in 1986, Pakistani cricket great Javed Miandad smashed a last-ball hit against archrival India in the final of the Austral-Asia Cup.

It’s been 36 years since Miandad smashed India’s Chetan Sharma for a last-ball six to steer Green Shirts to victory in Sharjah. The historic encounter between two neighbors has been the stage for many classics and thrillers over time however it still entertains millions besides shattering the hearts of Indian fans.

In the historic encounter, Pakistan was led by recently ousted Pakistani PM Imran Khan, while Indian legend Kapil Dev represented Men in Blue.

After being set a 246-run target by archrival India, the Imran Khan-led unit struggled after losing openers. Miandad then steadied Pakistan's innings and etched his name in history books with a ton.

Pakistan needed four runs off the final ball to win the match and it was the time when Miandad, one of the greatest batsmen Pakistan has ever produced, scripted a historic victory by smashing Sharma for a six.
