Benson & Hedges Cricket World Cup - 1992

1. Five players who played in the 1992 Cup can be seen in action in the current World Cup (2007, just in case someone reaches here through google 4 years or more later!). Tendulkar, Jayasuriya, Lara, Inzamam and _____ ?

2. "I have never ever seen more happening on a single delivery of a cricket match". The Oz captain, Allan Border made this statement overwhelmed by the happenings on the last ball of a very exciting match. What was he referring to?
( this are not his exact words, but rephrased from memory)

3. Which team finished fifth in the overall standings after the preliminary stage? (they missed out by a single point)

4. "Born Cape Town, 28 April 1968. LHB, occasional RSM or OB, WK. First-class career since 1986/87, 83 matches".
This is an extract from the description of a player who participated in the 1992 World Cup. Who could it be?

5. He gave no byes, took no catches, didn't effect any stumpings but was involved in the winning run-out and this was his first and only appearance in the World Cup as the wicket keeper. Who?

2. I think he was referring to the match against India, in which Srinath launched Moody towards cow corner, where Steve Waugh dropped the catch, but was smrat enuf to fire in a good return to run out Raju. India fell short by a single run.
3. Australia ?
4. Kepler Wessels ?
5. David Boon, against India
