An exceptional piece of performance by the Team India against the arch-rivals Pakistan in the semi-finals of ICC U19 World Cup has comfortably driven them into the finals.
India have declared a very comfortable ten wickets win over Pakistan as the lowest total of 173 brought them ease to cope with. The Indian opening duo of Jaiswal and Saxena did not let any opportunity vacant and utilize every bit of it that does not come the time for them for the requirement of any other batsman on the crease as there were no fall of wickets.
In the second innings, Pakistan initiated with a low economy rate but, fall short for the wickets which probably might had enhanced the confidence for opponent batsmen and they easily knocked off Pakistan from the mega event.
Huraira, who was the key player in the quarter-finals played against Afghanistan lost the potential and momentum today as Indian bowler Sushant strikes. He was got earlier. The skipper and vice-captain however, managed to score half centuries to lift the score to some extent but, still batting line-up was demolished on the horrendous total of just 172 runs with not even completion of all the overs of the format.
The Team India have previously won the titles four times of ICC U19 WC winners whereas, Pakistan have gained the title five times. This time, luck has gone with India as they have qualified for the finals knocking the opponent out letting them to play the worst of them.
