Last ball six drew the game, Pakistan VS Australia

This is one of the most epic matches of cricket. Pakistan was facing Australia in Australia. This ODI ended up as a tie. The two teams got no winning result from this one. But if we look at the whole context of the game Pakistan won it by drawing the match.

Pakistan needed some good number of runs in the final over. They had the left hander Asif Mujtaba at the crease and he was batting with the tail. Mushtaq Ahmed was caught at short fine leg on the very first ball of the final over.

That put Pakistan in pressure. The new man in was Aaqib Javed. At that point Aaqib was able to take a straight hit that went for a boundary. Before that Asif also hit a four on the second ball of the over. Now the two took a few singles as well.

At the end on the final ball of the over Pakistan needed six runs to level the score. There was not much possibility left for them to win this game. Hence a six could have saved the day for them. It was a full toss which was hammered on the leg side by Asif and it ended up as a six.
