Misbah-Ul-Haq Does A Yuvraj Smashes Six Sixes In Six Deliveries And Puts His Retirement On Hold

Pakistan batting legend Misbah-ul-Haq is a cornered man in Pakistan cricket these days. The 42-year-old has been asked to retire after the upcoming Test series against West Indies. 

But rather than being affected by the ever-growing chants demanding his ouster, the right-hander has shown us that he's still got a lot of cricket left in him. The Pakistani veteran proved his detractors wrong by smashing six consecutive sixes in an over - a feat achieved by Yuvraj Singh during the World T20 tournament in 2007.

Misbah achieved the feat during the Hong Kong T20 Blitz match between Hong Kong Island United and Hung Hom Jaguars. With his side on 175/6 in 18.4 overs, the Pakistani batsman decided to take matters in his own hands by smashing his compatriot Imran Arif for two sixes on the last two deliveries of the 19th over.

And, when he got the strike back on the second ball of the final over bowled by Ashley Caddy, the right-handed batsman continued his barrage, adding four successive sixes off the last four balls.

Thanks to Misbah's heroics, Hong Kong Island United notched up a formidable total of 216/6 with the Pakistani great remaining unbeaten on 82 off a mere 37 balls. His sensational innings was decorated with seven sixes and four boundaries.

His vintage knock eventually made the difference with Hung Hom Jaguars only managing to score 183/8, losing the match by 33 runs.

Reflecting on his innings, Misbah said: “That was crucial because when we are playing for this team, we don’t know what resources we have or what the batting line-up is like, so we try to bat through all 20 overs and see what we can do to the maximum,” said Misbah.

That’s what I was trying to do, play normal cricketing shots until the last couple of overs and then with these short boundaries we can take 35-40 runs and try to get 200 plus runs. We capitalised on the last two overs.”
