Wasim Akram won the WC to Pakistan by eating biryani, what is the secret of Sam Karan?

Melbourne: Pakistan won the final of the 1992 World Cup by defeating England in Melbourne. But after 30 years, in the T20 World Cup of 2022, he had to face it on Sunday night. Wasim Akram was the man of the match of the 1992 final, then he gave a match winning performance by eating biryani. This time England’s Sam Curran made his country the champion of T20 by not eating anything but sacrificing it.

Crores of rupees rejected by IPL

The 23-year-old all-rounder was playing for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL for the last two seasons. He did not get himself registered in the mega auction held this year. Due to fitness problems, he first went through rehab and then returned to the field playing county cricket. The franchise would have opened the coffers to have a player of the level Karan is, but rejecting crores of rupees, this left-arm pacer preferred his national duty because he knew that the T20 World Cup was to be held at the end of the year. The England all-rounder had said that he could play this IPL but wanted to avoid any possible injury risk.

Wasim Akram’s Biryani Connection
Just before the 1992 World Cup, Wasim Akram had ordered biryani from a Pakistani restaurant in Melbourne as he was being served sandwiches. The Sultan of Swing ate hot biryani in the dressing room and then bowled two unstoppable deliveries in the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground victory. Iftikhar Shah, who moved to Melbourne from Lahore in 1980, never imagined that the Pakistani team would eat at his hotel and see his country win in Australia. In that final, Wasim Akram took 3 wickets for 49 runs in his spell of 10 overs. Took important wickets like Ian Botham, Alan Lamb and Chris Lewis.

Brilliant spell from Sam Curran

Sam bowled the third best bowling in the history of T20 World Cup final. He took 3 wickets for just 12 runs. In World Cup finals, only Ajantha Mendis (4/12) and Sunil Narine (3/9) had better spells in the 2012 final. Sam, who troubled all teams in the slog overs (16-20), did not spare Pakistan either. Here too he took two wickets in the form of Masood and Nawaz for just seven runs in his two overs of slog overs. Sam took a total of 13 wickets in this World Cup, in which nine wickets were found in slog overs.
