World Series Game Of Only Academic Interest

15 January 1997

Thursday's World Series Cup between Australia and Pakistan will only have an academic interest as the hosts have already being knocked out of the best-of-three finals.

This will be the last match in the preliminary round where the three participating teams played each other four times each to determine the finalists. Australia won only three of their eight preliminary round matches though they started off well beating the West Indies in successive matches.

Pakistan will take on the West Indies in the best-of-three finals to be played on January 18 (in Sydney) and, 20 and 22 (both in Melbourne).
