A three-wicket burst by paceman Terry Alderman secured an improbable victory for Australia in the triangular one-day series match against India at Lancaster Park.

After Australia had struggled to reach 9-187 from its 50 overs, India was cruising at 6-154 when Alderman returned for his second spell and struck at the tourists' lower order.

The veteran West Australian had Kapil Dev caught by Dean Jones for 27 to break a potentially match-winning 44-run stand with Manoj Prabhakar.

It was the first of three wickets in a 16-ball spell that helped India slid to 169 all out in 45 overs, giving Australia victory by 18 runs with five overs to spare.

Alderman claimed Kapil with the fourth delivery of his second spell and finished with 5-32 from 10 overs and man-of-the match honours as his captain Allan Border breathed a sigh of relief.

Kapil and Prabhakar, who made 21, had the Australians at their mercy with eight overs remaining but Kapil holed out to Jones at long-on while Prabhakar swiped at Carl Rackemann and was caught by a sliding Steve Waugh at deep third man.

Australian coach Bob Simpson rates his charges as the best one-day side in the world and their effort yesterday to claim victory when all looked lost certainly justifies his claims.

However Border said he was unhappy that losing had become such a real prospect.
"We won a game we should have lost," Border said.

"We had our moments to show how far we have come in the last 12 months but we let ourselves down.

"In the end, we came out with a win and I imagine India are probably a little disappointed," he said.

Border understated India's feelings team manager Bishen Bedi roasted his side for handing the match to Australia. "I am thoroughly disappointed," Bedi said.

"If we are not going to kick ourselves in the backside now, when are we going to do it.

"Many of our batsmen committed suicide today and if they want to go out and commit suicide tonight, I'm not going to stop them," he said.

Australia struggled on an uncharacteristic low Christchurch wicket and only Border with 37 and Dean Jones, 32. made it past 25.

India began the chase for 3.76 an over badly, losing both openers and in-form Sanjay Manjrekar by the time the score had reached 23.

Alderman had Woorkeri Raman caught at first slip by Mark Taylor and picked up his partner Vijay Chandrasekhar for eight.

Chandrasekhar lost patience and skied a lavish pull to Steve Waugh at mid-on while Manjrekar feathered a catch to wicketkeeper Ian Healy down the legside off Rackemann.

Former captain Dilip Vengsarkar made the running to bring India back into the game. hitting six boundaries, while Mohammed Azharuddin pushed the ball around and displayed the calm that was missing when the latter batsman approached victory.

Vengsarkar was caught low-down at cover by Jones while Alderman caught Indian captain Azharuddin off Peter Taylor but Australia still needed something special to win the game with five wickets in hand for India.
