The England and Wales Cricket Board has appointed Michael Browning as the Event Manager for the 1999 World Cup. Browning has worked in Australia for over 30 years and was involved in the administration and marketing for the 1982 Commonwealth Games, the 1987 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships and the 1994 World Gymnastic Championships.

A career-best 103 by Michael Bevan, who shared a 189-run stand with Steve Waugh (89), fashioned an unlikely five-wicket win to give Australia the one-day series against South Africa by a 4-2 margin in Pretoria on Thursday. Bevan's maiden one-day international century, in his 55th match, came from 94 balls. South Africa's total of 284 was mainly due to the third- wicket pair of Hansie Cronje (80) and Daryll Cullinan (89).
