JAVED MIANDAD hit two towering sixes in the last over to spur Pakistan to a five-wicket victory over India in the sixth and final one-day cricket international in Jamshedpur.

They won with four balls to spare, scoring 266 for five in reply to India's 44-over total of 265 for three.

India, 4-1 down in the series, could hardly have made a better start. Manoj Prabhakar and Sunil Gavaskar put on 154 for the first wicket-a record in limited-over matches between the two countries.

The pair faced little difficulty from pace or spin on the firm, grassy wicket after Pakistan's captain, Imran Khan, had asked India to bat first.

Gavaskar, playing his 99th one-day international, entertained a crowd of 25,000 with delicately-hit glances and powerful drives before falling to a catch by Manzoor Elani off the leg-spinner Abdul Qadir for 69. He hit six fours.

First century

Prabhakar was more restrained after Gavaskar's dismissal, but went on to reach his first century in one-day matches shortly after off-spinner Tauseef Ahmed dismissed Raman Lamba for nine.

Prabhaker's solid knock came to an end when he was bowled by paceman Wasim Akram for 106, which included 13 fours. Dilip Vengsarkar then took up the attack and struck six fours to an unbeaten 54.

Pakistan's opening pair Rameez Raja and Ijaz Ahmed gave the innings a sound platform with a stand of 52 before Kapil Dev trapped Rameez leg before for 28.

Ijaz, dropped at 29 off Maninder Singh, went on to hit 72 from 80 balls before he was dismissed by Maninder.

Miandad then took up the assault, his unbeaten 78 proving decisive. He brought the match to a spectacular finish with two sixes off the first two balls of the final over, bowled by the off-spinner Gopal Sharma.
