Javed Miandad heroics

Cricket match between India and Pakistan presented thrilling close encounters right from its inception after both nations independence in 1947. The editor would like to narrate a particular cricket match which took place in mid 1980s in Sharjah. It was a final match of a particular tournament to which both the cricketing powerhouses qualified. India was led by Mr. Kapil Dev and Pakistan by Mr. Imran Khan. Final match had its share of ups and down and till the end winner was not predictable. Match went to the wire, with four runs needed to win from the last ball. Javed miandad of Pakistan was at the crease. Chetan Sharma of india was with the ball. Mr.  Dev sent all his fielders to the boundary line (except the wicket keeper). Mr. Sharma chose to bowl a Yorker which was converted into an half-volley by Miandad who rocketed the ball out of the boundary line for a six. This brought a stunning win for Pakistan over india in that match. This incident proved nerves of steel characteristics of Javed Miandad.

Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom.
One can find it, live it, be fortified by it,
do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.

Today Quotes:

Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor,
many people will dance.
Some will get angry when the rhythm changes.
But life is changing all the time.
