Pakistan pacer Wahab Riaz says his team is not reading too much into the parallels being drawn with the victorious 1992 World Cup squad despite undergoing a similar resurgent campaign in the 2019 edition reports

Imran Khan led Pakistan to their first and only World Cup victory 27 years ago and the exact pattern of wins, losses and washouts is being followed in this summer’s showpiece.

We don’t really talk about 1992 that much. The first thing is in this team, everybody has the same purpose. That’s where we started off and where we remain.

The turnaround is due to the motivation and the ambition of the team to win this World Cup. Everybody wants that. Obviously, this will be the last World Cup for Shoaib Malik and this is the time we are needed the most.
