3 Nation One-day Tournament
South Africa v Pakistan, Faisalabad, 28 October 1994

A blazing 98 by Ejaz Ahmad who added 147 in  an  unbeaten  fifth-
wicket stand with Basit Ali took Pakistan to a six wicket victory
over South Africa in the final preliminary match of a  triangular
one-day series on Friday.

Pakistan meet Australia in the final in Lahore on Sunday.

Aggressive batting by the two  talented  Pakistanis   saw   their
side  overhaul  South Africa`s total of 222 for six in 44.3 overs
of the 50-overs game.

Ejaz, who scored 110 in the earlier game against South Africa  at
Rawalpindi,  drove,  pulled  and swept with ease, slamming a huge
six and 11 fours from only 87 balls. His six off left-arm spinner
Clive  Eks***  landed  into the radio commentary box in the main
building.

Basit was an equal partner in this  match-winning  stand  and his
52,  including  seven  fours  from 60 deliveries, was his seventh
half-century in his 30th one international.

The victory came off a no-ball by  paceman  Eric   Simons   which
bowled  Ejaz, who was later named man-of-the-match for the second
time in the series.

Pakistan won by six wickets.
