49.2

Kalaria to Azizullah, OUT, batsman comes down the wicket, bowler spots it, drops it short, batsman gets the toe of the bat on an attempted uppercut but more height than distance and backward point takes on the edge of the circle

Kalaria to Zia-ul-Haq, 1 run, skewed to cover and that ends an innings both teams will be satisfied with

Match State: Innings Break

Pakistan's innings built on Sami Aslam's 134 and his 100-run partnership with Umar Waheed for the third wicket. India in turn will be happy with the way Pakistan never really got away on what is an excellent batting track and Rush Kalaria's 5-37 was instrumental in that. It's going to be another humdinger of a run-chase. Last Sunday in the group stage game, Pakistan scored five more and India lost by just one. It may well be another one that goes to the last delivery!

Join us again on the resumption, in 25 minutes' time. Thanks for being with us, we look forward to welcoming you back then.

End of over 50 (2 runs) Pakistan Under-19s 282/9
Zia-ul-Haq    1* (2b)      RB Kalaria    10-1-37-5
Akhtar Waheed    0* (0b)      Sandeep Sharma    10-0-56-1
