At Hyderbad, November 3. Pakistan won by 89 runs. Sri Lanka put Pakistan in to bat, but after an early breakthrough they were frustrated first by Ramiz Raja and then by Miandad as the Pakistanis maintained a scoring rate of 5 runs an over. Madugalle, who was fielding at third man, was injured when he was hit by a stone thrown from the stands. However, he recovered in time to bat and was one of five Sri Lankan wickets to fall for 80 in 21 overs. Mendis played a captain's innings but was fighting a lone battle.
