Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Kris Srikkanth, 9.5 ov), 2-86 (Mohammad Azharuddin, 24.6 ov), 3-101 (Ajay Jadeja, 27.6 ov), 4-147 (Vinod Kambli, 39.2 ov), 5-148 (Sanjay Manjrekar, 39.4 ov), 6-208 (Kapil Dev, 47.4 ov), 7-213 (Kiran More, 48.3 ov)
9.5 to K Srikkanth, Got him with a beauty! Late away movement, Srikkanth squared up but ends up nicking it and Moin dives forward to complete the catch. Srikkanth waited for the umpire to raise his finger. Important strike. 25/1
47.4 to N Kapil Dev, pulled straight to the man at the edge of the ring at midwicket. Another slower ball, he was winding up to hit this hard, no power behind the shot and lobbed straight to the fielder. 208/6
27.6 to A Jadeja, chips this straight to midwicket. Jadeja doesn't want to go, but the umpires confirm he's out.. 101/3
24.6 to M Azharuddin, big edge and gone! Tried to hit it too hard as he rocked back to cut, could only nick that and a good catch by Moin.. 86/2
39.2 to VG Kambli, oh that's a bit tame. Kambli steps out of his crease and though he gets to the pitch of the ball, and also times the ball quite well, he hits it straight to deep midwicket. Inzy takes the catch and India lose a wicket at an inopportune time. 147/4
39.4 to SV Manjrekar, drags it on! The Pakistan fans go wild! Mushtaq has changed the game! A lovely ball. The googly maybe, pitching in line with off stump and turning the wrong way for Manjrekar. He is trying to glide it to third man, but ends up with his castle breached. 148/5

TOTAL48.1 Ov (RR: 3.59)173
Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Inzamam-ul-Haq, 2.1 ov), 2-17 (Zahid Fazal, 5.3 ov), 3-105 (Aamer Sohail, 30.1 ov), 4-127 (Saleem Malik, 33.4 ov), 5-130 (Imran Khan, 36.4 ov), 6-141 (Wasim Akram, 38.6 ov), 7-141 (Javed Miandad, 39.3 ov), 8-161 (Moin Khan, 42.6 ov), 9-166 (Mushtaq Ahmed, 44.1 ov), 10-173 (Wasim Haider, 48.1 ov)
2.1 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, got iiiiimm! Kapil knows this is plumb even as he whirls around to appeal after getting an inswinger to pitch just in the perfect spot to have Inzy rooted to the crease. After that, the ball darts in too quickly for the batsman to have any chance even as he tries to flick it away. 8/1
42.6 to Moin Khan, taken by the sweeper! Moin falls to a very good shot - he knows he has gaps on the off side now that he's spooked India with his leg-side hitting. So he backs away and carves a short delivery on middle and leg and connects so well that it carries all the way to Manjrekar. 161/8
5.3 to Zahid Fazal, taken! A very thick edge as Fazal looks to defend a good length ball outside off, but that deadly tinge of away movement from Prabhakar sends him on his way. More takes the catch and starts jumping around on the spot in pure joy as Javed Miandad walks in. 17/2
33.4 to Saleem Malik, thick edge and gone! What a comeback. Once again looking to drive on the up, this one left him a wee bit to get a thick edge and that's a good grab from More. 127/4
39.3 to Javed Miandad, right into the blockhole, gets him to chop on off an inside edge. Javed is gone, trying to back away and steer to the off side. Cracking delivery from Srinath. Is that the last nail in Pakistan's coffin?. 141/7
48.1 to Wasim Haider, and there's the victory. Srinath bowls full and straight. Haider swings across the line and loses his middle stump. 173/10
30.1 to Aamer Sohail, steps out to loft, gets a thick inside edge and that's well taken by the Srikkanth at midwicket. Sohail got it off the toe end as he took it on the full.. 105/3
38.6 to Wasim Akram, steps out to push it into the off side, defeated by the drift that keeps taking the ball away, beaten and More effects an excellent stumping. Pakistan's freefall continues. 141/6
