“I recalled Imran Khan’s speech from 1992” Ramiz motivates Pakistan before the game
Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), revealed that he repeated the exact words of former skipper Imran Khan’s “shortest speech” prior to the 1992 World Cup final and urged the Green Shirts to play their best game in the T20 World Cup final on Sunday.
In a meeting with the players, Ramiz, who was also a member of the 1992 World Cup-winning squad, reportedly referenced that momentous match at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) thirty years ago. Imran’s conversation with the team prior to the 1992 final was described by Ramiz as “the shortest speech.” “Since what you were expected to perform has already been done. Within the next 24 hours, your technique cannot deteriorate or get better. Now, it’s a mental game.
Ramiz claimed that Imran had ordered the players to leave the field, have fun, and win the game. In addition, he remarked, “I precisely echoed the words that our skipper Imran Khan uttered to us at that time. The PCB chairman compared the current T20 megaevent to the 1992 World Cup and stated that Pakistan winning the World Cup on Sunday would be a “dream come true” for him.
He continued by saying that the Pakistan cricket team was competing as a unit and that none of the players were under any form of pressure. Boys are at ease. They are chatting, bowling bouncers to one another, and playing tennis ball cricket indoors.
So, they appear at ease, which is appropriate, he said. Ramiz stated that Babar Azam’s leadership abilities were unrecognizable and that he undoubtedly had the capacity to attain greatness. “I just told him (Babar) that he has the chance to become famous and leave a legacy right now. Nothing in his career could be bigger than winning the World Cup, he claimed.
It is important to note that the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 final, which will take place on Sunday at the storied MCG in front of an estimated 90,000 fans, will feature Pakistan, headed by Babar, taking on England.
