At Multan, October 14. Australia won by seven wickets. Toss: Pakistan.
In the heat and dust of this old city, Australia made a disastrous start, losing Slater and Mark Waugh without scoring. But Boon and Steve Waugh took up the fight, adding an unbroken 119 for the fourth wicket, to win with four overs to spare. Only the local hero, Inzamam-ul-Haq, with 59, showed any confidence against the pace of McDermott and especially Fleming, who removed both openers for the second match running and finished with four wickets, all bowled.
Man of the Match: D. C. Boon.
