Pakistan Under-19 166 for 3 (Amin 72*, Asad 52*) beat England Under-19 165 (Wasim 4-25) by seven wickets
Scorecard

Pakistan Under-19s produced a convincing seven-wicket win to take out the one-day series against England Under-19s 3-1. After the high-scoring encounter yesterday, this match was played at an entirely different tempo as England struggled to 165 all out against a much-improved Pakistan team, who reached their target with 13 overs to spare.

Pakistan's bowling and fielding, which was almost unrecognisable from Thursday's effort, set up the victory. The spinners sent down 37 overs and England struggled to force the pace on a pitch that was taking slightly more turn. Alex Wakely had a short stay at the crease - run-out without facing - and Billy Godleman couldn't reprise his century form, labouring through 47 balls for 19 before edging behind.

The middle order was then tied down by a quintet of spinners. Imad Wasim, the captain, ended with the best figures - including his opposite number Rory-Hamilton Brown superbly caught and bowled. Liam Dawson fell in similar fashion, as Wasim stuck out his right hand and plucked the ball out of the air. Ben Brown fought hard for his 31, which ended as the equal top score with Tom Westley.

Taimur Ali fell early in the run chase, trapped lbw by the impressive Steven Finn, but a solid base was laid by Ahmed Shahzad and Umar Amin. Victory was completed by an unbroken century stand between Amin and Ali Asad, who both reached half-centuries. Amin completed a productive series with his 72 while Asad, one of the two survivors from Pakistan's World Cup win in Sri Lanka, hit seven attractive boundaries.
