On this day, Imran Khan led Pakistan to World Cup glory in 1992
Pakistan didn't have a good start as they lost their openers Aamer Sohail (4) and Rameez Raja (8) in quick succession.
Coming in at No. 3, Imran Khan played a captain's knock scoring 72 off 110 balls and shared a solid 139-run stand with Javed Miandad (28). Inzamam-ul-Haq too chipped in with 42 off 32 balls and took the team to a respectable total of 249 runs.
For England, Derek Pringle claimed three wickets conceding 22 runs in his allotted 10 overs.
Wasim Akram sent Ian Botham for a duck to give his team the first breakthrough.
Akram, who was adjudged man-of-the-match, also dismissed Allan Lamb (31) and Chris Lewis (0) with his violently swinging deliveries
More than 87,000 people at the MCG witnessed the final match.
The 1992 World Cup forever changed Pakistan cricket, One Day cricket was already popular but it became even more so after this win. It changed the lives of all those involved. Wasim Akram forever became Wasim Bhai, Imran Khan became ‘immortal’, Inzamam became ‘Inzi’ and Miandad became the ‘saviour’.
