At Port Elizabeth, December 13 (day/night). Pakistan won by five wickets. Toss: Pakistan.
New Zealand's crisis of confidence was evident as their middle order squandered a bright start. Crowe and Parore had put on 101 for the second wicket in only 73 minutes, but after Crowe, who had hit eight fours and a six, was deceived by Salim Malik's gentle medium-pace, only Rutherford reached double figures. His dismissal at 173 began a collapse of eight wickets for 28, mostly to Waqar Younis and Aqib Javed. Aamir Sohail and Malik batted freely and Pakistan won with nearly four overs to spare.
Men of the Match: Aqib Javed and Waqar Younis.
