Scorecard

Pakistan Under-19 warmed up for the tri-series final with a resounding win in the dress rehearsal against South Africa Under-19 at the Stellenbosch University Ground. After being asked to field, Pakistan had their opponents in trouble at 13 for 3. The middle order put up a resistance - Shaylin Pillai made 36, Thenuis du Bruyn chipped in with 29 and Murray Coetzee remained unbeaten on 31. However, none were able to really push on. Legspinner Usman Qadir, son of Abdul Qadir, picked up three wickets and South Africa were skittled out for 152.

Opener Sami Aslam led Pakistan's charge in the chase, making a patient, unbeaten 84. Things were a little tricky at 77 for 3, but Umar Waheed joined Aslam to guide Pakistan to victory in 40 overs. The two teams play the final in Paarl on January 22.
