26 years ago today, Imran Khan made history for Pakistan
KARACHI: Twenty six years ago today, Imran Khan’s cornered tigers had defeated team England to win Pakistan’s first World Cup in 1992.
One of the members of 1992 World Cup winning squad Javed Miandad said they didn’t even dream of winning the world cup as his team was consecutively losing matches in the start of the tournament.
Pakistan could only win one match in the first stage of World Cup. However, the rain-hit match against England provided one point to Pakistan and helped Imran’s team qualify to the next round of the mega event.
Later in the tournament, Pakistan defeated Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand to enter event’s final.
In the final, Pakistan defeated England by 22 runs to win its first world cup.
