At Peshawar, October 24. Australia won by three wickets. Toss: South Africa.

Crowd trouble marred the game, with spectators pelting both sides on the field and the players' balconies. A firecracker exploded at Cullinan's feet, another landed by Boon and Warne was hit on the chest by a padlock. Amid these distractions, Cronje at last reached a deserved hundred when he hit McDermott's final delivery for four. Despite three run-outs, Australia reached the last two overs needing 17. Langer saw them most of the way with three fours (and four leg-byes) off De Villiers; Matthews then bowled Angel before McDermott took the winning single.

Man of the Match: W. J. Cronje.
