Random Pakistan Cricket Fact #14

Imran Khan to Inzamam: "I know that you will win us the World Cup."

True story.

Pakistan had played about a dozen warm up matches in Australia before the 1992 world cup; Inzamam Ul Haq had failed in all of them.

When members of the team and the management suggested that he was not good enough, Imran Khan maintained that, "this boy will win us the world cup."

After Pakistan's last league game against New Zealand, which was another failure for Inzamam, Imran Khan went up to Inzamam and said, "You scored only 5 but you hit 1 boundary and that was an amazing stroke. I know that you will win us the World Cup."

The rest, as we all know, is history.

    It is interesting. Despite all what Inzamam accomplished, I can never forget the innings against New Zealand in the semifinals. That to me was Inzamam's best moment.
