Kiwi fast bowler Trent Bolt commemorates legendary Pakistan batsman Javed Miandad.
Representing the Northern Districts in the New Zealand Super Smash League, the left-arm fast bowler played a key role in batting.
The Northern Districts team got into a lot of trouble in pursuit of an easy target of 108 runs while 8 runs were required in the last over and they had 4 wickets left but only one run was made on the first 4 balls and the wickets fell.
Clarke took a run off the fifth ball and Trent Bolt went on strike. Northern needed six runs off one ball to win with one wicket remaining.
Trent Bolt hit a six off the last ball to lead the team to victory.

It should be noted that Javed Miandad, the legendary batsman of Pakistan, is the first to win by hitting a six on the last ball of the match.
In the 1986 Sharjah Cup final, Pakistan needed 4 runs on the last ball to win and Pakistan had the last wicket left. In such a situation, Javed Miandad gave victory to Pakistan by hitting six off the last ball to Indian bowler Chetan Sharma.
