    shots you can't forget

    - Inzi dances down the pitch way too early, the Indian left-arm spinner (I think it was Joshi) tries to jam the ball into Inzi's body, Inzi moves to his left in a flash and still manages to crash the ball for a six over cover.

    - Saeed Anwar plants his foot down the pitch and caresses the ball into the midwicket stand with nothing but a flick of the wrist. The bowler's Alan Donald and the match is the final of a triangular series played in South Africa. I've not seen any batsman hit such effortless sixes.

    - Jayasuria takes an outside the offstump ball from a fiery Waqar Younis and thwacks it over the square leg boundary (final of 1996 Singer Cup played in Sri Lanka). Jayasuria I think smashed the fastest 50 record and maybe the fastest 100 too in that match though Pakistan still managed to win it thanks to Saqi's heroics.

    Ground: Lords
    Test Match between West Indies and England
    Late 70's

    Bob Willis trying to contain Viv with bowling off-line and 7-2 field. Willis bowls five consecutive off-liners. On the sixth delivery, whoch is a good 1 1/2 ft outside off, Viv takes two steps towards off and pulls it to Deep Square Leg for a six.

    Semi Final 1992. Inzi heaves Chris Harris with one knee bent touching the ground over Extra Covers for a SIX.

      Well who can forget the shot of them all, Miandad's six at Sharjah. He outfoxed Sharma, moved slightly to the off even before the delivery was bowled and pulled it effortlessly for a six.

      Sachin's six against Shoaib in the last world cup.

        WC 1992 Semi final, Danny Morrison to Inzi

        Inzi comes down the wicket lofts it over cover into the wind and still manages to just clear the hoardings. One of the most stylish sixes i have seen.

                Another one is this sequence that happened in final of 2002 Natwest Final.
                After each four.Stand in captain Tescothik tried to plug that gap by moving one fielder and next four was hit exactlly at the same place where fielder was tanding prior to his movement to new location.

                12.1 Irani to Sehwag, FOUR, full in length, picked up early and
                deposited over mid-wicket, one bounce and over the ropes.
                The run rate climbs up to 6.99
                Third-man brought up, a fielder goes towards the deep towards mid-
                wicket, just can't cover all the angles in the first 15 overs
                12.2 Irani to Sehwag, FOUR, outside the off, driven square, in the air,
                through what would have been a gully, down to the now vacant
                third-man for four. England has a problem now.
                12.3 Irani to Sehwag, FOUR, paddles this one around towards the now
                vacant fine leg for four, it is all happening here at Lord's,
                three fours ina row, stand-in skipper Trescothick just can't get
                the field right.
                12.4 Irani to Sehwag, no run, well up to the batsman, driven to mid-on
                12.5 Irani to Sehwag, FOUR, is there a way to stop this man? Whipped
                through square leg, wide of Trescothick and the ball crashes into
                the fence for four
                Its 5-0-1 in worldcup.
                Its good to be world champions again.
                And we though Aussies were invincible.

                  Arguably the greatest shot ever to be played in cricket: Bob Willis to Viv Richards, Old Trafford 1984, stands tall and then moves back from his One Leg Gaurd, Willis Pitches it slightly up outside off stump. Richards stays where he was, just moves his front foot forwards(Not towards line of the Ball, but farward), his weight is still on Backfoot, body away from the line of the ball, Just extends his arms and the Ball goes a mile Out side the stadium....

                  Arvinda Desila's Six of brett lee of his toe during the round match of WC 2003.

                  Brian Lars's Hook of Donald that Landed Out side Long On fence in 1999.

                  A few of the Flicked, swept sixes by Moin Khan during 99 WC.

                  One of the Square drives that Anwar played during ATC game at Calcutta against Srinath, absolutely effortless.

                    The Game Responds:

                    I just can't forget those two fours Klusener hit in the last over of the 1999 World Cup Semi Final. 9 runs required off the last over, and he ate them up in two balls through two breathtaking shots. Too bad, South Africa lost. People, That Is All.

                      Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.

                          -Anwar flicking full balls on leg over mid-wicket/deep square-leg for six (many times). most notably 96-wc quarterfinal.

                          - Mark Waugh lazily flicking Donald off leg for six to midwicket in Sa. dont recall yr

                          -Azhar wristfully toying Klusener all around the midwicket rope in his last tour to SA.

                          - Moin ke thapparrs on the off-side. visible almost every match.

                            Ijaz's Six to Prasad in Sharjah , dont remember the year 98-99 maybe. it went miles high in the air and hit the big LG sign on top of the stadium

                            Moin hit a four to Kumble dont remember which match. he simply got on one knee placed the bat at the pitch of the ball with one hand and it raced to fine leg for 4

                            Saeed's last shot of his 194 innings off Tendulkar that was cought by ganguly

                            Tendulkars six of shoaib was a beauty

                            another thing that i can never forget is a throw from Ijaz from the boundry which hit direct. the running batsman ducked to avoid the ball hitting his head and it hit the stumps. when Ijaz was about to throw Moin yelled " shabash Cheeetayy"
