Background: Pakistan star, Imran Khan led an all-star 'Rest of World' cricket side to a four wicket victory over India in a one-day match in the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in New Delhi on February 15. The fifty-over match was played as a benefit for former Indian captain, Bishen Singh Bedi. The World eleven's innings hinged on Khan's seventy-five runs, which he knocked up in fine style. However, the spectators' interest focused on Australian fast bowler, Dennis Lillee, playing in India for the first time ever, just weeks before his retirement from cricket. India batted first and scored 271 runs for nine wickets in their fifty overs. Spinner David Steele took three wickets and Lillee and West Indian pace bowler, Joel Garner took two each. The World eleven hit their target in just 40.2 overs with Khan reaching his total in a forty-minute innings, which included eight sixes and five fours. Australian Bruce Yardley was the team's other top scorer, hitting sixty-three. Bedi, who played in the Indian side had the consolation of taking three of the World XI wickets with his cunning left-arm spin bowling.
