Arthur wants Pakistan to summon 'cornered tigers' spirit
Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur has vowed to remind his players of the "cornered tigers" spirit which Imran Khan instilled in his team-mates to win the 1992 World Cup.
An 89-run defeat by arch rivals India in Manchester on Sunday has left Pakistan's hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals hanging by a thread, with only minnows Afghanistan below them in the 10-team table.
Yet Pakistan now find themselves in exactly the same position as when they won the 1992 World Cup -- a tournament which, like this one, featured a round-robin group phase.
They now have three points from five matches with only one win -- a surprise success against hosts England -- three defeats and a no-result.
As happened in 1992, Pakistan started this World Cup with a defeat by the West Indies.
