The day April 18th is considered to be one of the most celebrated cricket moments in Pakistan’s history, as in 1986, the national team had won their first major tournament by lifting Austral-Asia Cup after beating arch rivals India at the final.
The moment almost made Javed Miandad a legend after he hit the world famous six off the final ball of the match bowled by Chetan Sharma at Sharjah Stadium 32 years back.
