I feel the single most influential reason as to why Pakistan won the 1992WC was because of Imran Khan's leadership. He led from the front, showed determination and self belief even when the side were down and out and Pakistan's exit seemed inevitable. He was faithful and really soldiered the team brilliantly.This was complemented with individual heroical performances by ppl like Inzy in the semi final where Pakistan won from the jaws of defeat and Wasim Akram's outstanding final where he claimed the MOM award.Fortune was also with Pakistan. They started of slowly but managed to get to the semi finals with some help of other countries. This provided Pakistan with an opportunity when it mattered most.
That match had so many memorable moments....event the commentary was classical.Saleem Malik's throw from the deep, Aaqib Javed's catch, Rambo's catch and sajda, Inzi's fine cuts, Imran's six over the bowler....and Ian Botham's face when he was out!The interesting thing is the ODI totals in those days! Look how far the game....or should I say batting, has come.
Stani yes great memories indeed.And yes ODI cricket has come a long way since then.Your spot on ;-)
