THE West Indies bundled Pakistan out of the World Series cup competition with a one-wicket win in the most exciting match of the series in Adelaide, and will now meet Australia in the

All-rounder Malcolm Marshall, the man of the match, saved the West Indies from a disastrous position to steal the game from a weakened Pakistan. After capturing 3-28 in Pakistan's modest total of 177-8 on a perfect batting strip, he went to the crease with the cream of the West Indian batting already in tatters at 61-5.

Back in the pavilion were Desmond Haynes (3), Richard Gabriel (10), Gus Logie (19), Larry Gomes (3) and Viv Richards for only 18. And with just 14 more runs on the board, Clive Lloyd was run out for 10.

When Jeff Dujon fell to Abdul Qadir, giving the leg-spinner his third victim, the onus was on Marshall, with the team tottering at 92-7. He took control, with excellent support from Eldine BaptistÄ™ (24), and they shared a 53-run partnership off 35 deliveries.

But when Wasim Raja dismissed Baptiste all seemed lost. Michael Holding departed for 10 and when Wayne Daniel joined Marshall 19 runs were required off four overs. Marshall reached his half-century off 81 deliveries and with 16 runs required off the last 18 balls, he won the game with five deliveries remaining, finishing unbeaten on 56.

Wasim Raja was the batting hero, and was a close contender for the man, of the match award. 

The innings closure of 177-8 did not appear enough, but Raja came on to bowl medium-pace for six overs after only three overs of the West Indian innings, and immediately had Desmond Haynes caught behind. He returned to bowl leg-spin late in the innings, broke the Marshall-Baptiste partnership with his opening delivery, and finished with 3-33 off 10 overs.
