Pakistan, under Imran's captaincy, became World Champion in 1992.
Inzamam scored 60 runs in 37 balls in the semi-final
Sports desk 1992 World Cup was to be held in Australia. Australia and England were considered to be the cup claimants. India was also counting in good teams, neighboring Pakistan was not far away in the race. Although the team was good, after the retirement of all-rounder Imran Khan, there was a lack of leadership. Former Pakistan President Jia-ul-Haq was a big fan of cricket. UL Haq only talked to Imran Khan sometime before the World Cup to improve the team's performance, and after a lot of hardship, finally, he came back from Sannyas and convinced him to play the World Cup.
Imran returned and became the captain. They rely heavily on young players like Inzamam-ul-Haq, Wasim Akram, and added them to the World Cup team. At one time, Pakistan team selector Inzamam was not ready to take the team. He said that Inzamam is overweight. But Imran said that I have seen the 5-minute Inzamam batting on the nets and I am sure that there is a lot of talent in it.
Inzamam shared a 87-run partnership with Miandad
Eventually Imran got the desired team. In the last match of the league round, Pakistan defeated New Zealand by Rameez Raja's century, but the match was stuck in the semi-finals. Chasing a target of 263, Pakistan lost a crucial wicket for 140 runs. Inzamam scored 60 runs in 37 balls and added 87 runs for the win with Miandad. Imran Khan's decision to take inzamam in the team proved right. By defeating England in the final, Pakistan won the first and the only ever title.
