Pakistan yesterday cruised to victory over a depleted West Indies side by eight wickets in their limited overs World Series match at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Both teams had already qualified for the final. Pakistan cantered to 183 for 2 with 64 balls to spare after West Indies earlier collapsed to 181 all out, losing eight wickets for 25 runs in their last 10 overs.

WORLD SERIES (Sydney): West Indies 181 (47.3 overs; S Chanderpaul 72; Saqlain Mushtaq 4-17); Pakistan 183 for 2 (39.2 overs; Aamir Sohail 55). Pakistan won by eight wickets. Standings: 1 West Indies (P8, Pts10); 2 Pakistan (7-8); 3 Australia (7-4).

India yesterday made four changes in their squad for the triangular limited-overs series against South Africa and Zimbabwe later this month and altered travel plans to give their players a rest before a tour of the West Indies. The opener Woorkeri Raman, the middle-order batsman Pankaj Dharmani, the left-arm spinner Venkatapathy Raju and the medium-pacer David Johnson have been omitted from the one-day squad.
