Following Pakistan's six-wicket victory over New Zealand at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Wednesday, fans were quick to point out the similarities between Pakistan's current World Cup campaign and the 1992 World Cup run which saw Pakistan pick up their first World Cup, led by Imran Khan.
Indicating the similarities between the two tournaments, Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi took to social media to convey that the statistics shared between the two World Cup runs for Pakistan were 'spooky'. With a hint of patriotism, Vivek Oberoi played out a situation, asking whether history would repeat itself for Pakistan or will India rewrite history to bring home the World Cup?
Pakistan's current World Cup campaign is doing viral rounds as it is very similar to their 1992 World Cup campaign which saw them win three games out of seven played with one game being completely washed out. The striking co-incidence has got the internet excited about Pakistan's World Cup run, with many hoping and predicting that history would repeat itself for Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Indian politician and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor too took to Twitter to share these interestingly similar statistics between Pakistan's 1992 World Cup and the ongoing tournament. He ended his tweet with a question of whether current skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed would become Prime Minister for Pakistan 26 years later just like how current Prime Minister Imran Khan did 26 years after winning the World Cup in 1992.
As far as World Cup is concerned, Pakistan beat New Zealand by six wickets with five balls to spare as they clinched their third win of the tournament. The team is all set to face Afghanistan next at Headingley, Leeds on 29 June.
