How Sri Lanka played in 1992 Cricket World Cup

Australia and New Zealand hosted World Cup in 1992 first times. The event, staged in Australia (25 matches) and New Zealand (14 matches) in 1992, featured, for the first time, all eight Test-playing teams, with aspiring Zimbabwe taking the number of competing sides to an unprecedented nine. The fifth World Cup was the first to be played in colored clothing, with a white ball and some games under floodlights. Although it was again 50 overs a side rather than the original 60, it was generally considered to have been the fairest.
Pakistan won the World Cup for the first time, beating England (twice previous finalists, never winners) by 22 runs on a memorably dramatic autumn night in Melbourne, before an Australian limited-overs record crowd of 87,182.
Sri Lanka won 2 Matches against South Africa (Semifinalists) and Zimbabwe (Chasing over 300 for the first time).
