THE 1992 MAGIC PAKISTAN NEED RIGHT NOW!

One name comes to mind whenever we talk about the 1992 world cup and that is “The Great Imran Khan”. his captaincy genius and heroics with the bat for Pakistan made the definitive difference in the end but it wasn’t so easy for Pakistan to qualify into the finals or the Semi-Finals even. The Term “Cornered Tigers” was introduced by the great Imran Khan when his team lost the initial matches and had to win all their matches and then pray for the west indies match to go into their favor. this seemed almost impossible however nothing is impossible in this world and everyone was taken to surprise when Pakistan improved their performance overnight and delivered some hefty punches to the stronger oppositions and the heaven also played their part for them to qualify into the semi-finals.

Pakistan with only 3 points after 5 matches are now in the exact same scenario as they were in the world cup 1992 which they went on to win eventually.

Also England has to lose atleast 3 matches out of their 4 so Pakistan can qualify comfortably into the finals. If we talk about cricket this seems ever so impossible right now. but as the word goes, Nothing is impossible.

The Great Imran Khan always says ” You don’t lose until you think you lose”
