Former Indian cricketer Kiran More took to Twitter on Wednesday, to share pictures of his Team India jersey from the 1992 World Cup. More uploaded four images, with the cricketer seen wearing the jersey in three of them. “Look what I found myself! The original jersey of the 1992 @[email protected], still fits me very well. It brought back all the fond memories, what a tournament it was, as the great Richie Benaud would say on air: simply superb! #cricket,” read the caption on the tweet.

More had previously shared a picture on the social media platform from the inauguration ceremony of the 1992 World Cup in Sydney. “Remember this inauguration of the 1992 @[email protected] in Sydney, good to know that @BCCI will be wearing a similar jersey during the upcoming ODI series against @CricketAus @azharflicks @RaviShastriOfc @sanjaymanjrekar @pravin__amre @[email protected]#AjayJadeja,” read the caption on the tweet.

While Pakistan defeated New Zealand in the semi-final, England reached the final following a triumph against South Africa.
