pak vs wi in 1987 wc lahore

West Indies vs Pakistan match saw a thriller in Lahore in 1987 WC where Pakistan emerged victorious by a margin of just 1 wicket on last ball of the game. Abdul Qadir batting as a tail ender smashed an unbeaten knock off 16 runs from just 9 balls and helped his team to cross the winning line.

West Indies batting first posted 216 runs from 49.3 overs and in reply Pakistan managed to reach 217 runs exactly at the end of 50 overs with just one wicket in hand. Saleem Yousuf was awarded player of the match award for scoring 56 runs off 49 balls.

WI - 216 (49.3)

Viv Richards - 51(52); Imran Khan - 4/37 (8.3)

Phil Simmons - 50(57); Saleem Jaffar - 3/30 (10)

PAK - 217/9 (50)

Saleem Yousuf - 56(49); Courtney Walsh - 4/40 (10)

Ramiz Raja - 42(87); Patrick Patterson - 2/51 (10)

Interesting highlight of the game was that Courtney Walsh refused to mankad last man Saleem Jaffar when he got an opportunity to do so on the non-striker's end and that resulted in Pakistan winning the clash by 1 wicket and unfortunately due to this defeat West Indies weren't able to qualify for the semi-finals of the tournament.
