On August 02, in the third match of the one-day series between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh at Harare Sport Club, Brendan Taylor smashed a monstrous six over the mid-wicket fence off the last ball of the day by Mashrafe Mortaza, to register a sensational two wicket win for his side. It was only the third instance in the annals of ODI cricket when a batsman clubbed a six off the final ball to win the match for his side. Taylor also became only the 11th batsman for the 12th time to score a winning boundary (four or six) off the final ball of an ODI. Lance Klusener still remains as the only batsman to perform such feat twice.
- Margins are from the perspective of the sides listed first
- At Hobart on December 10, 1992 Pakistan’s Asif Mujtaba hit a six off Steve Waugh on the final ball to tie the match. This still remains as the only instance in the annals of ODI cricket. Scores: Pak [228/9]; Aus [228/7].
