On 25 March 1992 Imran Khan led his Pakistan side to a World Cup win over England in Melbourne.
In 1992 Pakistan triumphed in the World Cup in Australia by beating England by 22 runs in the final, a feat they have not achieved since.
The iconic Imran Khan captained the Pakistanis and top-scored in the final to help his side win the fifth edition of the tournament.
The victory was even more impressive for Khan’s team considering they only just qualified for the knock-out stage after losing three of their group matches to the West Indies, India and South Africa.
A no-result between Pakistan and beaten finalists England in the round-robin stage of the competition, meant that the eventual winners went through to the semi-finals ahead of Australia by one point.
However, after making it to the knock-out stage Khan’s side never looked back as 60 runs from Inzamam-ul-Haq helped beat New Zealand in the semis with an over to spare.
In the final a 72 from Khan was coupled with a half-century from Javed Miandad as Pakistan posted 249 from their 50 overs.
In reply England started poorly as they lost their maverick all-rounder Ian Botham for a duck and Alec Stewart followed him to the pavilion shortly after with Graham Gooch’s side on 21-2.
A quickfire 62 from Neil Fairbrother was not enough for England as they struggled to meet the five runs an over they required to win.
In the end Gooch’s team ran out of steam and despite a valiant effort from the tail-end they couldn’t prevent being bowled out for 227.
Wasim Akram and Mushtaq Ahmed both finished with three wickets apiece for Pakistan as their side triumphed for the one and only time in their history at the World Cup.
