At Sharjah, May 1. Pakistan won by eight wickets. Toss: New Zealand. Having elected to bat, the New Zealanders were humiliated by the young Pakistan fast bowler, Waqar Younis, who finished with five wickets for 20 in nine overs to assure Pakistan of a place in the final. Pakistan reached their target in the sixteenth over for the loss of only two wickets. New Zealand never recovered from being 44 for four by the fifteenth over, and only Jones, who was last out, came to terms with the struggle. He hit four boundaries in his 47 from 85 deliveries.
Man of the Match: Waqar Younis.
