The Sharjah Cup was a cricket tournament that was played annually in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, between 1984 and 2000. The tournament was known for featuring matches between India and Pakistan, which were some of the most highly-anticipated and fiercely-contested matches in the history of cricket.
The first India-Pakistan match at the Sharjah Cup was played in 1984, and was won by Pakistan. The two teams went on to play several more memorable matches at the tournament over the years, including the famous “Javed Miandad six” in 1986, when Miandad hit a last-ball six off Chetan Sharma to seal a dramatic victory for Pakistan.
Another classic match was played in 1996, when India and Pakistan met in the final of the tournament. India batted first and scored 305 runs, with Navjot Singh Sidhu top-scoring with 101 runs. Pakistan made a valiant effort in their run chase, but fell short by just 8 runs, with India winning the tournament for the first time.
The Sharjah Cup continued to be a major highlight of the cricketing calendar throughout the 1990s, and saw several other memorable India-Pakistan matches, including a match in 1998 where Sachin Tendulkar scored a brilliant century to help India chase down a target of 273 with ease.
Overall, the India-Pakistan matches at the Sharjah Cup have become the stuff of legend in the world of cricket, and remain some of the most iconic and memorable moments in the history of the sport.
