ICC World Cup 1992 - Australia and New Zealand
Imran Khan Winner 1992 Pakistan
Winner : Pakistan
Final Man of The Match : Wasim Akram (Pakistan)

Fifth ODI Cricket World Cup was played in two countries Australia and New Zealand between 9 International Teams. England, India, New Zealand, Australia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, West Indias and South Africa participated for the 5th Cricket World Cup tournament. Total 39 games were played at 18 different venues of Australia and New Zealand. The players wore coloured clothing, with names on the back. There were floodlights for most of the 36 games. The white ball - in fact two of them, one at each end. The fielding-circle rules were refined, allowing only two men outside the ring in the first 15 overs; after the first 15 it was as before: a minimum of four inside the circle.

Imran Khan's Pakistan beat England in the first World Cup to be played in coloured clothing and under lights. Pakistan beat England by 22 runs in the final match and registered World Cup title for the first time. Wasim Akram was man of the match for his all-round performance with 3 wickets and contributing 33 runs of just 18 balls.
