Pakistan Under-19 229 for 8 (Jahangir 49, Raza 55) beat England Under-19 139 (Sibley 39, Ghulam 4-18) by 90 runs
Series/Tournaments: Tri-Nation Under-19s Tournament in United Arab Emirates
Pakistan Under-19 ended the round-robin stage with a perfect record, beating England Under-19 by 90 runs at the ICC Academy. Pakistan posted 229 for 8, before bowling England out in 41.5 overs with left-arm spinner Kamran Ghulam taking four wickets.
Pakistan chose to bat and were 32 for 2 before Shayan Jahangir and Hasan Raza put on 97 for the third wicket, but both players were eventually run-out, with Jonathan Tattersall the fielder on both occasions. Raza was first to go for 55, while Jahangir made 49. A mini-collapse followed, and Pakistan were 155 for 7 before Saifullah Khan and Saud Shakeel put on 66 for the eighth wicket to push their score past 220.
Apart from a second-wicket stand of 63 between Dominic Sibley and Tattersall, England struggled to forge partnerships. The only other batsman apart from them to pass 20 was captain Will Rhodes, who was last out for 31 as England folded for 139. Ghulam finished with figures of 4 for 18, while Zia-ul-Haq and Saud Shakeel took two wickets apiece.
The two sides will meet again in the final on Sunday.
