IND Playing XI vs AFG: Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Chahar in line for return…

JAVED MIANDAD :- Miandad’s final-ball six off India’s Chetan Sharma in the 1986 Austral-Asia Cup final at Sharjah still hurts India fans. Needing 246 for victory, Pakistan were in trouble at 61-3 before Miandad struck an unbeaten 116 off 114 balls. With four needed off the final delivery, India fast bowler Sharma bowled a full toss and Miandad slogged it high over the leg side and into the crowd to trigger wild celebrations.

ASIF MUJTABA :-
A left-handed gutsy middle-order batsman, Mujtaba took on Australia’s bowlers in a 50-over World Series match in 1992 and hit
a six off the last ball from Steve Waugh to tie a dramatic game. Chasing 228 for victory in Hobart, Pakistan slipped to 197-7 but Mujtaba stood firm and with 17 needed off the final over Australia skipper threw the ball to part-time seamer Waugh. Mujtaba hit him to all parts and dispatched the last delivery, a full toss, over midwicket to level the scores.

SHAHID AFRIDI :- Afridi won many exciting games for Pakistan with his maverick batting but his two sixes off India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in a 2014 Asia Cup 50-over match remain special. Pakistan, chasing 246, needed 10 when Ashwin started the 50th over by taking a wicket. But Afridi smashed the off-spinner for two straight sixes to live up his ‘Boom Boom’ nickname as Pakistan won with one wicket and two balls to spare.

ASIF ALI :-
Ali was relatively unknown when he hit four straight sixes off Afghanistan’s Karim Janat to announce his arrival at last year’s T20
World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. Pakistan needed 26 off 18 balls when Asif walked in to bat. Asif watched calmly from the non-striker’s end in the 18th over before smashing Janat over the ropes four times to take Pakistan home with an over to spare.

NASEEM SHAH :-
Shah became Pakistan’s newest six-hitting hero when he walked in to bat at number 10 with Pakistan needing 20 off 10 balls
with just two wickets in hand in their chase of 130 against Afghanistan on Wednesday. Pakistan lost Asif in the 19th over but Naseem kept his cool, with 12 needed off the last over, to smash Farooqi’s attempted
yorkers for consecutive straight sixes over long-off.
