First One-day International


At Gujranwala, December 3. Pakistan won by 14 runs. After India had put Pakistan in, Miandad scored a brilliant century in 114 minutes with one 6 and twelve 4s. A fourth-wicket stand of 111 between him and Imran wrecked India's hope of dismissing Pakistan cheaply. After the early dismissal of India's openers, Vengsarkar and Amarnath added 71 for the third wicket. But that was not enough as Jalal struck twice in the same over, getting rid of Kapil Dev and Amarnath.
