Not every batsman can handle the pressure at the top level but there are some players who save their best for the last moments.
Here are 10 instances when a sixer on the last ball of the match made the winning runs.

But the medium bowler Rajat Bhatia had some other plans. He took Dhoni’s wicket on the second ball of the over and finally Bravo was left with five runs on last ball of the over.
Bhatia bowled first five balls superbly but bowled the high-waist full-toss and Bravo punished the bad ball by hitting it high and long towards long-on for six.
