Fourth One-day International


At Sinhalese Sports Club, Colombo, March 11. Pakistan won by eight wickets. Put in to bat, Sri Lanka were saved by Ranatunga, whose 74 not out, off 89 balls, included a 6 off Qadir and four 4s. Rain interrupted Pakistan's reply in the fourteenth over (45 for no wicket), and when play resumed 90 minutes later in bright sunshine they required a further 57 runs off 10.1 overs, their target having been amended to 102 off 24 overs. This they achieved with an over to spare.

Man of the Match: A. Ranatunga.
