Pak's Twenty20 World Cup triumph victory a deja vu

Posted By: Staff

London, June 22 (ANI): Pakistan captain Younis Khan drew a parallel between his team's Twenty20 World Cup triumph at Lords' with Imran Khan's 1992 World Cup victory.

"I'm the second Khan," Younus said, addressing a post victory press conference.

Pakistan team's fight back story in the 16-day Twenty20 championship mirrors that of 1992 team led by Imran Khan, who famously urged his players to fight "as if you were a cornered tiger."

On Sunday, a delighted Imran Khan warmly congratulated Pakistan cricket team over their "tremendous performance" against Sri Lanka.

"Our cricketers did us proud," The Nation quoted Khan, as saying.

Imran Khan, who had just landed in Houston, Texas, from Dallas said the Pakistani cricketers, despite their isolation from international cricket, fought courageously and came from behind to clinch the World Cup.

He said the morale-boosting news came in the wake of the Swat tragedy and several other setbacks. "This victory is so uplifting," he remarked. (ANI)
