Inzy says 1992 World Cup victory heralded golden era for Pakistan
Islamabad: Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has said that the team`s victory in the 1992 ICC Cricket World Cup had heralded a golden era for Pakistan, in which the country yielded some outstanding results on the international scene and produced some of the best cricketers.
According to The Daily Times, Inzamam scored a total of 225 runs in 10 innings during the event in 1992, but it was his match-winning knocks of 37-ball 60 against New Zealand in the semi-final and a 35-ball 42 against England in the final, that earned him the reputation as a future star status he justified by signing off on his career in 2007 with 8,830 Test and 11,739 ODI runs.
Inzamam said that Pakistan defeated almost every team in Test and ODI arena on a regular basis and was able to dominate the world in the 90s because the World Cup victory had transformed them and changed their mindset.
