Born in Multan on 3 March 1970, Inzamam was a relative unknown when he was named in Pakistan's squad for the 1992 World Cup.
He suggested to legendary skipper Imran Khan, the man who discovered him, that he should be left out of the semi-final against New Zealand after struggling on the lively wickets in Australia.
Imran insisted he should play and the 22-year-old responded magnificently by turning a lost cause into a sensational triumph by clubbing 60 off 37 balls.
He continued that form in the final against England, with a rapid 42 to help post a total that proved beyond Graham Gooch's men.
