ISLAMABAD - Pakistan faces shameful defeat at hands of Indian U19 team in the semifinals of the ICC World Cup.
India defeated Pakistan by 10 wickets to book their place in the International Cricket Council (ICC) U19 Cricket World Cup final. The first semi-final between the two historic rivals was played at the JB Marks Oval, Potchefstroom on Tuesday.
India chased down the 173-run target with 88 balls spare as Yashasvi Jaiswal cracked 105 not out from 113 balls, hitting eight fours and four sixes. His partner Divyaansh Saxena made 59 off 99 balls.
For his match-winning knock, Jaiswal was named man-of-the-match.
Batting first after winning the toss, Pakistan failed to make most of the opportunity as they lost wickets at regular intervals.
Quarter-final hero Mohammad Huraira fell for four while Fahad Munir perished for a duck.
At this stage, captain Rohail Nazir joined Haider Ali and the two combined for a 62-run third-wicket partnership.
