West Indies vs Pakistan 1st Match Benson & Hedges Challenge 1986-87 Highlights

Watch the highlights of West Indies vs Pakistan 1st Match Benson & Hedges Challenge 1986-87 - Benson & Hedges Challenge one-day international tournament of the 1st ODI match played between Pakistan and West Indies at Western Australia Cricket Association Ground, Perth in 30th December 1986.

Javed Miandad's crucial half-century before Mudassar Nazar's three-wicket haul and Left-arm pace bowling attack from Saleem Jaffar and Wasim Akram helped to Pakistan beat West Indies by 34-runs in the opening match of a Benson and Hedges Challenge.

MUDASSAR NAZAR, better known as an opening batsman than for his gentle medium-pace, was the most successful bowler as Pakistan upset the West Indies with a 34 run in victory in the opening match of the $61,000 Benson and Hedges Challenge at Perth's WACA Ground.

Mudassar Nazar captured the wickets of Desmond Haynes, Viv Richards and Gus Logie to help dismiss West Indies for 165 in 46.2 overs. This was in reply to Pakistan's 199 for eight from the full quota of their 50 overs.

Despite the withdrawals through injury of ace speedsters Malcolm Marshall and Joel Garner but Tony Gray and Michael Holding sharing the new ball instead, The West Indies were able to restrict Pakistan's scoring.

Malcolm Marshall had a knee injury and Garner was feeling the effects of a fall during practice over the weekend.

Pakistan, beaten 4-1 at home by West Indies in the recent limited-over series, looked to be heading for another defeat when West Indies passed 100 for the loss of only two wickets and with Richie Richardson and Richards going well.

West Indian openers Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes shared an opening stand of 40 before Greenidge was bowled. Haynes was out for 25 when he edged a ball from Mudassar Nazar to wicketkeeper Saleem Yousaf.

When Richie Richardson was run out for 38 and captain Viv Richards trapped leg-before-wicket for 10 in the following over, the West Indies had suddenly slumped to 4-106.

Gus Logie was next to go, caught Saleem for 7. He was followed back to the dressing-room at regular intervals by Jeffrey Dujon (13), Winston Benjamin (3), Michael Holding (5), Tony Gray (3), and Courtenay Walsh (3).

Mudassar Nazar's final analysis, three for 36, won him the man-of-the-match award. Pakistan's victory was aided by Javed Miandad who batted splendidly for his 53.

Javed Miandad's main support came from Rameez Raja, the pair putting on 91 in 19 overs for the third wicket. Rameez's 42 included only one boundary as he played a willing second fiddle to Miandad, who made his runs from 67 balls.

Pakistan's innings also faded badly with the last six wickets falling for 36.

Tony Gray took advantage of some desperate shots by the Pakistan tailenders to take the bowling honours with 4-45.
