Fifth Cricket World Cup 1992


The fifth ICC Cricket World Cup, also known as Benson & Hedges World Cup, saw Australia and New Zealand playing the hosts. It started on 22nd February 1992 and ended on 25th March 1992. A number of firsts have been attached with the fifth edition of the ODI tournament. For instance, it saw the introduction of colored clothing for the players, along with white balls and black sightscreens. Not only this, it was the first time that a number of matches were played under floodlights, rather than sunlight. The number of participating teams went up to nine, with the inclusion of South Africa (boycotted earlier) in the test-playing nations.

The first ODI World Cup to be held in the Southern Hemisphere, it also witnessed a complete Round Robin replacing the two qualifying groups that were present earlier. The participants included Australia, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Zimbabwe. Pakistan, the team that had initially won just one of its first five matches in the World Cup, turned the game later on and went ahead to win the final and claim the trophy, defeating England by 22 runs. In this tournament, for the first time, 'Man of the Series' was awarded and it went to Martin Crowe from New Zealand.
