At Sharjah, April 9. England won by 11 runs. Toss: Australia. England became the first side in the tournament to win after batting first, and with Gooch and Broad putting up 118 for the first wicket, they compiled the highest total as well. While Boon was making his third consecutive half-century and adding 159 with Border, the Australians had victory in their sights. But their later batsmen could not sustain the momentum.
Man of the Match: G. A. Gooch.
