On this day in 1992,Inzamam’s fine batting display in Semi-Final

A storming World Cup semi-final in gusty Auckland ended with Pakistan knocking out the co-hosts, New Zealand. New Zealand had managed 262 for 7, thank you in particular to Martin Crowe, who flashed 91 off 83 balls earlier than he become run out. Pakistan went slowly in reply, till Inzamam-ul-Haq flayed 60 off 37 balls, with some of meaty strokes into the huge open spaces. One immediately hit got caught within the wind for an age earlier than carrying for 6. He produced 87 in ten overs with Javed Miandad earlier than he become run out by Chris Harris, but with nine needed off eight balls, Moin Khan swiped Harris for a massive six – anguished cries may be heard everywhere in the ground – and then moved him behind square for the winning 4.
