“Stung by a heavy defeat in the opening game, Pakistan has forced Super Challenge II into a series-deciding clash at the 'Gabba next Wednesday after registering a hard-earned two wicket win over Australia in Melbourne tonight. Spirited bowling was complemented by patient batting as the tourists dug deep into their reserves of skill and commitment to secure victory with seven balls to spare,” wrote John Polack in his report, commenting on the 2nd ODI between Australia and Pakistan at Colonial Stadium in Melbourne in 2002. It was a classic Pakistan comeback, kick started by Wasim Akram before being anchored home by Younis Khan.
