Pakistan cricket team in EnglandThe Pakistani cricket team toured England in the 1992 English cricket season, the first tour since the acrimonious visit by England to Pakistan in 1992/88, which was highlighted by the Mike Gatting/Shakoor Rana dispute. Five Test matches and five One Day Internationals were scheduled, running from May to August.
The Test series was won 2-1 by Pakistan, who fielded a consistently strong team led by Javed Miandad and featuring the batting talent of Saleem Malik and the strike bowling partnership of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis as well as the guile of Leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed. England's batting was also strong, with Alec Stewart, Graham Gooch and Robin Smith excelling, but they lacked a consistent bowling threat.
The Pakistani opening bowlers developed prodigeous Reverse swing with the old ball, and ripped through the England tail on numerous occasions. Although the quality of those batsmen could certainly be called into question, the ease with which Wasim and Waqar dismissed the lower order was a significant and series-winning difference for Pakistan.
