Cricket, the game of entertainment takes its shape in the last over. Over the years we’ve been a witness for thousands of matches but the thrill that we enjoy in the last over is just beyond words. Here we bring you the 10 mind blowing finishes that gave us full on entertainment.
It was one of the T20 semi finals between Australia and Pakistan. Australia needed 17 runs in the last over and Mike Hussey was at the strike facing a Pakistani spinner Sayeed Ajmal. This was one of the spectacular matches where Hussey hit back to back sixes and finished the match in style and it was an absolute treat to aussie fans.
Who will forget that last over in the first T20 final between India and Pakistan where Dhoni gave a ball to an inexperienced bowler Joginer sharma instead of Harbhajan singh? Misbah flips the ball in the air to get out for a catch and India celebrates to become the first the T20 world cup winner.
