Breaking: India smash Pakistan by 203 runs, march into finals



New Delhi, Jan 30: India beat Pakistan by 203 runs to storm into the final of U19 World Cup. Pacers have wrecked havoc and Pakistan had to give in. 

The last meeting between the two sides was at the 2014 U-19 World Cup where batsman Sanju Samson scored 68 runs to set up a win for India. 



India had outclassed Australia, Papua New Guinea and Zimbabwe before defeating Bangladesh in the quarter-final to book themselves a semi-final spot. 



Pakistan, on the other hand, lost to Afghanistan before defeating Ireland, Sri Lanka and South Africa to reach the semis. 



In the batting department, India will bank on their right-handed batsman Shubman Gill, who has batted three times and passed 50 on each occasion. He has also scored most runs for the Indians in the tournament. 



The bowling will, however, rely on Anukul Roy, who is the leading wicket-taker for the side with 11 wickets from his four matches. Roy is a slow left arm orthodox bowler. 



Pakistan, who struggled to get runs on the board in the first game against Afghanistan, have come good with their batsmen Ali Zaryab Asif and Rohail Nazir leading the way with three 50s between them.



However, pacer Shaheen Afridi, who is the leading wicket-taker for Pakistan, will need to be on song against the in-form Indian batting line-up to help his side produce a positive result. 



Squads:

India: Prithvi Shaw (c), Shubman Gill, Aryan Juyal, Abhishek Sharma, Arshdeep Singh, Harvik Desai, Manjot Kalra, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Pankaj Yadav, Riyan Parag, Ishan Porel, Himanshu Rana, Anukul Roy, Shivam Mavi, Shiva Singh.



Pakistan: Hasan Khan (c), Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Ali Khan, Ammad Alam, Zaid Alam, Ali Zaryab, Arshad Iqbal, Muhammad Mohsin Khan, Muhammad Musa, Saad Khan, Rohail Nazir (wk), Munir Riaz, Suleman Shafqat, Imran Shah, Mohammad Taha.
