1992 world Cup

Several months later, on this day The ICC 2023 Cricket World Cup will take place in India on Thursday, October 5, 2023. Reviewing the competition that Pakistan won will be done here.

The most significant victory in 1992 world Cup Pakistan’s cricket history occurred during the month of Ramadan. Let’s take a look back in time and reflect on Pakistan’s development.
The first time colorful uniforms, day/night matches, and brand-new white balls were used in a cricket tournament was in 1992 world Cup. After 31 years of being denied entry owing to apartheid laws, South Africa was invited to participate in its first World Cup. Also playing in their first world cup were Sachin Tendulkar, 18, and Brian Lara, 22.
Injury problems plagued the Pakistani team prior to the competition. Imran Khan’s shoulder ailment limited his ability to bowl, paceman Waqar Younis was out with a back injury, and Javed Miandad suffered back issues. Imran Khan, the team’s captain, Ramiz Raja, Aamir Sohail, Inzamam ul Haq, Javed Miandad, Salim Malik, Ijaz Ahmed, Wasim Akram, Moin Khan, Aaqib Javed, and Mushtaq Ahmed all played on the squad. Their lime green uniform has become recognizable.

Pakistan needed to win all of their remaining games in order to advance with only 3 points after 5 games played. We have nothing to lose, Imran told the crowd at this point. We should go there and struggle like tigers in a corner. It turned out to be a motivating speech.

Australia vs. Pakistan, 11.3.1992Sydney, Australia

Semi-finals Pakistan vs. New Zealand on March 21, 1992New Zealand’s Auckland

It was a bright yet blustery day. Martin Crowe, the captain, strained his hamstring and was run out for 91 runs off of just 83 balls. Ken Rutherford hit 50 shots. They completed with a high score of 262.

However, Crowe’s injury prevented him from leading his team into the field. In their reply, Pakistan got off to a strong start with 44 from Rameez Raja and Imran Khan and 57 runs from Javed Miandad.

A total of 123 runs were needed in the final 15 overs. Enter 22-year-old Inzamam ul Haq, who initially informed Imran that he couldn’t participate because he was sick and weak at the time.

However, he smashed 60 off 37 balls (7 fours, 1 six) with his powerful, precise strokes performed with great timing. The seasoned Australian analyst Richie Benaud declared Inzamam “is a very dangerous batsman” after a few hits he had little trouble identifying the holes in the field.

In the 1990s, when bats were smaller and thinner than they are today, this scoring rate was really exceptional. In this game, he had cemented his reputation. Pakistan easily advanced to the finals thanks to a clutch 20 off just 11 balls from under pressure Moin Khan.

Pakistan vs. England in the Final on March 25, 1992, in Melbourne, Australia

Imran won the toss and elected to bat first on a clear, sunny day in front of a record-breaking 87 182 spectators. He was wearing a white T-shirt with a tiger imprint.

Australians living nearby supported Pakistan because they wanted to see their bitter rivals, England, lose. There were a large number of Pakistanis present as well.

Many people were shocked to learn that the motivated “Cornered tigers” had advanced to the final. Aamir Sohail and Ramiz Raja, Pakistan’s openers, were dismissed cheaply, leaving the team at 24/2 after a sluggish start.

Imran Khan and Javed Miandad, two composed veterans who had each won five world cups, then joined forces to right the ship. They got off to a sluggish, cautious start since they knew they couldn’t risk losing their wickets. They had only scored 4 runs from 60 balls at one stage. The score was 70/2 after 25 over when Captain Gooch lost a catch from Javed.

The outfield moved quickly. After laying the groundwork, the couple started to pick up speed. They afterwards formed a 139-run partnership. Javed scored 58 off 98 balls (despite experiencing stomach symptoms and needing a runner) and Imran scored 72 off 110 balls. Then came a rapid 42 from Inzamam, a newly discovered talent, and a quick-fire 33 from Wasim Akram off 19 balls. They scored 249/6 to finish.

Pakistan vs England in the Final

When it got dark, England started to play under floodlights. Wasim bowled an outside edge that swiftly resulted in Ian Botham being out for a duck. Aaqib Javed defeated Alec Stewart with an outswinger of 21/2.

Graeme Hick was having trouble identifying Mushtaq’s aggressive mystery leg spin before being fooled by the googly, 59/3. Following an outstanding grab by Aaqib in the outfield, he also got Gooch out.

Wasim next bowled two consecutive unplayable pitches from close to the wicket. In order to hit Alan Lamb’s off stump for 31, the initial swing came late off the field and straightened up. For a golden duck, 141/6, the second was a nasty swinger to get rid of Chris Lewis.

Wasim’s two most significant career wickets are those two because they changed the outcome of the game. Neil Fair’s brother, who was limping, earned a commendable 62. Wasim’s final three lines were 3/49, 3/41 and 2/27 for Mushtaq.

Later that evening, at 10.18 p.m., Richard Illingworth was caught by Ramiz off Imran’s bowling to secure Pakistan’s maiden world cup by a score of 22 runs. England was out for 227. Wasim Akram was named man of the match and took the most wickets in the tournament. With 437 runs, Javed Miandad finished second in the competition. Pakistan’s finest-ever team has made history. This marked the beginning of Pakistan’s ‘golden’ era of cricket.
We wish Pakistan’s cricket team the best of luck in next month’s Cricket World Cup.
