Wills International Cup 1998-99, fourth quarter-final

Pakistan v West Indies

At Dhaka, October 29 (day/night). West Indies won by 30 runs. Toss: West Indies.

Pakistan showed signs that the strain of denunciations and denials to the bribes inquiry was having its effect, and lost easily after a ragged performance. West Indies took command from the first over, which produced 14 off Wasim Akram, and Wallace played a succession of enthralling straight drives for 79 off 58 balls. It was 143 for one in the 20th over, with a huge score threatening, before he was freakishly run out when the ball ricocheted off gully's knee to point. Pakistan pegged the scoring back after that, but not enough. With four spinners, West Indies had the right attack for the pitch, and Arthurton, bowling slow and straight, cleaned out the Pakistani middle order.

Man of the Match: K. L. T. Arthurton.
