Cricket fans are in for a treat with the release of the documentary series Cornered Tigers: The 1992 Story on the internet platform Tapmad. Thirty-one years ago, Imran Khan led Pakistan to its first World Cup victory.

According to documentary filmmaker Adnan Sarwar, “Winning the 1992 World Cup is one of my fondest childhood memories,” he told the local media. It was a unique opportunity for our nation to come together and celebrate our achievements.

Produced by Neena Kashif, the documentary features interviews with nearly all of the key figures of the era.

It is a unique endeavour for Sarwar. He had the chance to speak with the people who had inspired him as a youngster and help capture a historical event for future generations through the documentary film.

All of the players will be heard talking in the movie about their most memorable experiences, both good and terrible, including the Pakistani team’s World Cup performances. Among the most prominent figures mentioned in the docuseries are Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram, Inzamamul Haq, Moin Khan, and Mushtaq Ahmed.

By portraying the team’s early hardships and failures, the documentary opens by laying the groundwork for Pakistan’s participation in the huge event. Viewers can see the team’s tenacity, resiliency, and exceptional friendship as the competition goes on.

The documentary’s producer, Nina Kashif, stated: “I honestly wonder why no one has tried to do this before. Making a documentary about the topic has never been undertaken, despite a few commercial brands making brief attempts to accomplish something similar.”

The documentary series chronicles the players’ individual experiences, feelings, and observations during the World Cup campaign through in-depth interviews with them. The former players will also be heard discussing the rumors and scandals of the period.

The documentary series reveals the team’s tenacity and support in helping the nation win its first championship.
