IN by far the best match of the four-nation Champions Trophy tournament, Pakistan beat India by three wickets, with nine balls to spare.

It had been a fascinating struggle with Imran Khan fully justifying his decision to put India in by taking the first three wickets, including the reliable Gavaskar and the mercurial Srikkanth in his first four overs.

However, a solid innings of 49 by Azharuddin and a swashbuckling 36 from Kapil Dev put India back into the game and gave them a total to bowl at.

But things looked bleak for the World Cup-holders when the Pakistan openers put on 51 in 21 overs, before Maninder Singh transformed the whole contest.

He removed danger-man Javed Miandad first ball, and Imran second ball, both for nought, and suddenly Pakistan were reeling at 65 for six.

Luckily for them, Maninder ran out of overs, and a stirring display of controlled hitting by all-rounder Manzoor Elahi took Pakistan to victory and won him the Man of the Match award.

West Indies, with an unbeaten record, annexed the first prize of £22,000.
