PAKISTAN recorded their lowest-ever total in one day games against the West Indies to crash to an 89-run defeat in Multan in the fourth match of a best-of- five series.

The touring side had already won the first three games and again demonstrated their all-round superiority after Imran Khan had won the toss and asked them to bat.

The West Indies were never in trouble once they had reached a total of 202, the first time in the present series that either of the two sides had reached the 200 run mark. A late assault by Roger Harper and Jeff Dujon put on 49 in the last six overs, after a fourth wicket partnership of 51 between Logie and Gomez had provided a platform.

Pakistan experimented with a new opening partnership of Sajid Ali and Shoaib Mohammed and they started off in determined fashion in pursuit of the 4.59 runs an over they required to win. They hit ten in the first two overs before the wickets began to tumble.


Only Javed Miandad and skipper Imran Khan looked equal to the task set by the West Indies attack, putting on 64 in 14 overs after Pakistan had fallen to 4-30.

But once that pair were out, both caught at long on off fast bowler Anthony Gray, the rest of the batting folded.

The wickets continued to fall at regular intervals, until Pakistan were all out for only 113 off 38.2 overs, their worst one-day batting performance against the West Indies. The last four wickets fell for only 18 runs, with the tailenders unable to match a hostile attack.

Gray took the bowling honours with four for 36, a performance which earned him an award as 'man of the match'. He was well supported by Courtney Walsh, who took two wickets.

Pakistan have a final opportunity to take a game off the tourists when the teams move on to Hyderbad for the final one-day Test tomorrow.
