Australia win by seven wickets
HALF-CENTURIES by David Boon and Steve Waugh steered Australia to a seven- wicket victory over Pakistan in the second match of a triangular one-day series in Multan yesterday.
Boon hit 84 and Waugh 59 in an unbroken fourth-wicket stand of 120 in 149 balls as Australia overhauled Pakistan's total of 200 for 8 with four overs to spare in the 50 overs game.
Australia's success followed their six-run win over South Africa in the inaugural match at Lahore on Wednesday and put them top of the table with four points.
Boon, who completed his 34th half-century in his 166th one-day match, had earlier added 70 runs with the captain Mark Taylor, who scored 46 as Australia overcame a shaky start when Michael Slater and Mark Waugh fell for ducks.
