Jalal-ud-Din - the most unlikely named fast-bowler in international cricket, took a hat-trick to help Pakistan storm to a 59-run win over Australia in the first Wills 40-over One-day international at Niaz Stadium.

An 11th hour replacement for the injured Pakistan captain Imran Khan, Jalal-ud-Din took the wickets of Rod Marsh, Bruce Yardley and Geoff Lawson with the fourth, fifth and sixth balls of his 70th over to the unbridled delight of a captainy crowd of 30,000.

His burst sealed Australia's fate, Earlier at 100/0 in the 23rd over, the tourists seemed well placed to overhaul Pakistan's 229-6, achieved mainly because of the excellence of Mohsin Khan - who scored a magnificent century.

It was a woeful batting display by the Australians - who lost nine wickets for 66, It's last six for eight - After Graham Wood and Bruce Laird had added 104 for the first-wicket.

A week ago, only the better read of the Australians would have heard of the 22-year-old Jalal-ud-Din, who plays his first class cricket with the Muslim Commercial Bank in Karachi, Although he made his international debut against Sri Lanka earlier this year, he is yet to play a Test.

Jalal-ud-Din has made a big impression on the tourists over the past few days, preceding his 4-31 from eight overs today with 5-70 against the Australians in Multan last week.

Australia did not recover after Its captain and form batsman, Kim Hughes was dismissed for just two runs, caught in the deep by Haroon of off-spinner Tauseef Ahmed, who provided great support for Jalal-ud-Din, taking 4-31 from his eight overs.

The Australians paid dearly for playing John Dyson ahead of the free-stroking Greg Ritchie and had no one able to meet the required rate of nearly six runs an over once Wood caught by Jalal-ud-Din - Hughes and Border were removed.

There was high drama midway through the Pakistan innings when the Australians threatened a walk-off unless the crowd remained orderly, Kim Hughes and his men were peeved by a succession of Invasions of the pitch by excitable spectators, mainly children.
