Pakistan World Cup victory on ICC's 100 greatest moments list


Pakistan’s 1992 World Cup victory is now on the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) 100 greatest World Cup moments countdown list, open for voting on the ICC website.

Voting for this World Cup moment is only open for a 24-hour period.

Pakistan already features on the top 10 moments of the list, with Shoaib Akhtar’s 100mph thunderbolt during the 2003 World Cup at number four. However, India holds four spots on the list, with Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s 91 runs from 79 balls against Sri Lanka in the 2011 World Cup final at number one.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) had announced the countdown in early November and has been announcing one memorable moment in World Cup history every day from November 6, 2014 to February 13, 2015.

A total of 100 moments will be announced over these 100 days in the run-up to the Cricket World Cup (CWC) 2015.

The 65th moment to be announced, the 1992 World Cup victory under Imran Khan’s captaincy can be voted for here.

Top 10 shortlisted moment of the greatest World Cup moments will be announced on 14 February, 2015, while a final vote to crown the Greatest World Cup Moment from the first ten Cricket World Cups will take place on 2 March, 2015.

Correction: In an earlier version of this story, it was mistakenly stated that voting was open till February 13, 2015. Voting on each of the 100 moments is open for a 24-hour period. Voting in general will go on till February 13, 2015. We regret the error.
