1986 John Player Triangular Tournament

The 1986 John Player Triangular Tournament was a cricket tournament held in Sri Lanka between 5 and 7 April 1986. Three teams took part in the tournament: Pakistan, New Zealand and hosts Sri Lanka. The tournament ran concurrently with the 1986 Asia Cup and was arranged partly to compensate for the withdrawal of India from the Asia Cup.[1]

The John Player Triangular Tournament was a round-robin tournament where each team played the other once. Each of the three sides won one match each and Pakistan won the tournament on run rate.
