AR: Pakistan had lost to West Indies and then managed a win against Zimbabwe but then came the shocker - shot out for just 74 by England.
RR: England had a strong team, experienced at playing one-day cricket, and they caught us on an English pitch with English weather, but the difference was that rain came to our rescue. The match was abandoned as a no-result, and our embarrassing 74 all-out got us a point. That would turn out to be the most important point for us in the World Cup. We had an interesting team meeting after the game and our captain somehow saw a positive in the result and said that this one point would enable us to win the World Cup. At the time we took it as a mere tool to lift our spirits, but it turned out to be exactly the saviour for us.
