Carlton & United Series, sixth qualifying match


Toss: West Indies.

We are on a roll, trumpeted Walsh after his side won their fourth successive tour game and their second in the tournament. Pakistan never recovered from 12 for two against the relentless accuracy of the West Indian fast bowling troupe. The talking point of the night, however, was the storming Australian international debut of stringbean Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Zahid. In a Test-style confrontation, he captured the Gabba crowd's attention by livening up Lara with speed and lift and eventually snared him with a snick behind. Hooper branded the 21-year-old Zahid the fastest bowler he had faced on tour.

Man of the Match: C. L. Hooper. Attendance: 15,873.
