The West Indies continued their dominance of the of the Benson and Hedges World Series Cup competition against Pakistan, but not before they had given their supporters in the crowd of 15,194 at the SCG some palpitations.

In pursuit of a seemingly modest 185 for their fourth victory in the series, the West Indies middle order had another horrid time against master leg spinner Abdul Qadir. In the end they had only nine balls to spare after Gus Logie and Malcolm Marshall had combined to add an unbeaten 41 for the sixth wicket, taking the West Indies score to a winning 5/185.

The West Indies now have a decisive lead in the contests with eight points from five games. Pakistan has only three points from five outings and Australia three points from four appearances.

Richie Richardon, 22, on his first tour to Australia, engineered the victory with an enterprising 53, his first half century in four limited-over internationals and one Test appearance for the West Indies.

Said by his captain Clive Lloyd to be a miniature model of fellow Antiguan Viv Richards, Richardson played some spectacular" drives. He hit six boundaries — one more than the entire Pakistani order could muster and won the Man-of-the-Match award.

Pakistan, which had struggled to cope with the West Indian fast bowlers, eventually managed 8/184 because perky Qasim Omar stopped blowing kisses and waving to his horde of followers on the Hill long enough to score 67 from 120 deliveries.

The abrupt departure of Viv Richards for two last evening encouraged the Pakistanis to believe that a remarkable victory was still within their reach.

Richards was out-witted by the canny Qadir, who again mesmerised the West Indian middle order. Qadir deliberately pitched a ball a little shorter to Richards, who obliged by lustily pulling him behind square leg into the waiting hands of Rashid Khan, strategically positioned on the rope.

The Pakistanis had further cause for glee when Jeff Dujon was run out for 13 in the 40th over and again when top scorer Richie Richardson followed in the 41st, being smartly stumped by Wasim Bari off the last ball of Qadir's outstanding spell which netted him 3/27.

But the Pakistanis had left their run too late, Richardson and Desmond Haynes having added 79 in 69 minutes for the second wicket to give the West Indian innings a firm base.

At no stage did the Pakistani batsmen come to terms with the relentlessness of the West Indies pacemen, and their scoring rate was totally inadequate from early in the innings.
