Sharjah Cup

†AUSTRALIA v PAKISTAN 1986-87

At Sharjah, April 3. Pakistan won by six wickets. Toss: Pakistan. Batting first on the livelier of Sharjah's two prepared pitches, Australia were immediately in trouble against hostile new-ball bowling from Wasim Akram and Manzoor Elahi. Boon and O'Donnell's century partnership lent the innings respectability, but with Miandad in the mood to take their attack apart, Australia never looked like winning.

Man of the Match: Mudassar Nazar.
