Cricket: Ponting prompts Australia with record
Sunday 12 April 1998
Ricky Ponting scored a record-equalling 145 to help Australia beat Zimbabwe by 16 runs in New Delhi yesterday and move into Tuesday's final of the three-nation one-day tournament against India. The Australians, put in to bat, piled up 294 for 3 in their 50 overs, with Zimbabwe managing 278 for 9 in reply. Ponting equalled Dean Jones's highest individual Australian score in one-day cricket, achieved against England in Brisbane in 1990. Ponting and Mark Waugh, who scored 87, shared a partnership of 219, an Australian one-day record for the second wicket, surpassing the 185 stand shared by Jones and Geoff Marsh against England in Brisbane in 1990.An inspired performance by skipper Hansie Cronje, who took 2 for 17 and hit a 42-ball half-century, helped South Africa to a three-wicket victory over Pakistan in their Standard Bank triangular limited overs international at Buffalo Park in East London.
