Batsman Finishing A Test Match With A Six - Misbah-ul-Haq did it thrice

1 minute read

Very few batsman have finished a cricket match with a six in test cricket. If one looks at the data from 2005, only 13 batsman have acheived this feat. Batting in the 4th innings is a tough task and the probability of winning a test match by chasing is less.

In ODI cricket, Dhoni holds the record for finishing match with a six maximum times - dhoni finishing in odi with a six

In Test cricket, this record is held by Misbah-ul-Haq who has done it 4 times. No other batsman has done it more than once from 2005.
