After a superb win over South Africa on Saturday, diehard supporters of Pakistan are beginning to see similarities between this World Cup and the one in 1992 (also played in Australia-New Zealand) when their country had won.
Pakistan versus South Africa at Eden Park, ground of the notoriously short straight boundaries. Pakistan are wounded, desperate. South Africa are upbeat, riding on AB de Villiers' pyrotechnics and Hashim Amla's prolific form. Twice they've crossed 400. Pakistan struggled to 339 against UAE. The knives are out, the post mortem being prepared. This is Pakistan, after all.
