1983 World Cup - Group A


At Swansea, June 9. Pakistan won by 50 runs. Though put in on a damp pitch, Pakistan had no difficulty in making a score which always looked certain to be out of Sri Lanka's reach. At opening stand of 88 between Mudassar and Mohsin was followed by a fine innings of 82 by Zaheer and a violent assault on the medium-paced bowling by Miandad and Imran. Sri Lanka were always behind the required scoring-rate and Pakistan did not miss Imran's bowling.

Man of the Match: Mohsin Khan.
