Cricketers recall fond memories of 1992 World Cup win
Pakistani cricketers recalled fond memories of 25 March 1992, the day Pakistan won the Cricket World Cup, under the captaincy of Imran Khan, as they defeated England by 22 runs to lift their first-ever trophy, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistan team’s current head coach and former chief selector of the Pakistan national team said, “Today is an important day for all the cricket watchers and lovers. I was in FSc and we had to wake up early in the morning to see the match due to the New Zealand timing.”
“The role of Imran Khan and Javed Bhai was commendable along with Inzi Bhai inning and youngsters performances. I also remember Waseem Akram and Aqib Javed’s bowling too,” he added.
Former test team skipper Younis Khan commented that he remembered the day because it was Ramazan and he watched the complete match ball-to-ball.
Cricketer Nida Dar recalled the memory and maintained that her whole family celebrated the victory of the Pakistan team in the final match.
Muhammad Hafeez said, “This was proud moment for any Pakistani. I was 12-year-old at that time. I was not aware of cricket much at that time but surely celebrated the cricket frenzy moments with the nation.”
Former skipper Sarfraz Ahmed said he was five years old and remembered the moments when the whole Pakistani nation was celebrating. “Pakistan got great players from the 1992 World Cup match,” he added.
