Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
So the similarities between the ICC Cricket World Cup 1992 and 2019 continue to amaze Pakistan fans around the world.
In 1992, Pakistan won against the in-form New Zealand side who were going unbeaten in the tournament.
Similarly, Pakistan downed New Zealand yesterday with a touch of elegance and class. Babar Azam and Haris Sohail both played match-winning knocks for Pakistan and the opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq was pumped up after the victory.
Imam said that it was a great display of self-belief, grit and determination by Babar Azam, Haris Sohail & Shaheen Shah Afridi.
Babar top-scored for Pakistan with 101* and Haris Sohail played a match-winning knock of 68. Shaheen took 3 wickets upfront to dent the progress of New Zealand. Imam further added that the team is now focused on their next task as they take on Afghanistan on Saturday.
