PCB will display the trophy at Gaddafi Stadium to remember the 1992 World Cup

In recognition of the Green Shirts’ historic World Cup triumph in 1992, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to commemorate the occasion with vigour and joy.

When Pakistan defeated England by 22 runs on March 25, 1992, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, they were the first Asian nation to win a World Cup since the 1930s. It was Pakistan’s first-ever appearance in a World Cup final, and they were ecstatic.

On March 25, the PCB announced that the trophy from the 1992 World Cup would be presented at Gaddafi Stadium to commemorate the momentous triumph over West Germany during that year’s tournament.

Photographs and selfies with the iconic trophy are authorised for cricket fans who wish to commemorate the occasion.
