New Delhi: Imran Khan, Pakistan legend, played his last Test in 1992 on this day. The career that spanned over two-decades, Imran played 88 Tests and picked 362 wickets to go with 3807 runs. He was widely regarded as the best all-rounder along with Kapil Dev, Ian Botham and Richard Hadlee. His last match came against a lowly Sri Lankan team in Faisalabad.

It wasn't the best outing for the all-rounder as he could just manage scores of 22,0 in two innings. In fact he did not even have a bowl in the Test, and bulk of the bowling was done by Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. But that was good enough for Pakistan to win the Test, and the series too.

Akram was awarded man-of-match for picking five wickets in the match and also scoring 54 runs in the final innings chase. It was after retirement from Test cricket that Imran took Pakistan to a World Cup win, two months later.
