Captained by the legendary Imran Khan, Pakistan defeated Graham Gooch's England in the final by 22 runs at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Winning the toss, Pakistan put up a decent 249/6 as, following the early dismissal of openers Aamer Sohail and Ramiz Raja, Imran Khan (72) and Javed Miandad (58) revived the batting and were later supported by Inzamam-ul Haq (42) and Wasim Akram (33).

Derek Pringle picked three wickets for England. In reply, England kept losing wickets on regular intervals as player of the match Wasim Akram and Mushtaq Ahmed picked up three wickets apiece. Aaqib Javed took two wickets.

Ultimately, England were folded out for 227 runs.

Prior to the final, Pakistan defeated New Zealand by four wickets. It was thanks to the heroic effort of young Inzaman (60 off 37 balls) that Pakistan chased down the target with an over to spare. In the other semi-final, England beat South Africa by 19 runs.
