ICC Under-19 World Cup - 2nd semi final

India Under-19s v New Zealand Under-19s

India Under-19s won by 9 runs

Hello all and welcome to the coverage of the second semi-final between India and New Zealand. Both the teams are coming off thrillers in the quarter-finals.

The last wicket pair of Harmeet Singh and Sandeep Sharma saw India through. Ish Sodhi of New Zealand saw to it that they got the eighteen runs required in the final over to qualify

News is that New Zealand have won the toss and they have chosen to field. India have gone in unchanged and New Zealand have made one change- Ed Nuttall comes in for Sean Davey

We can form an XI out of players whom we would perform to expect, but since the game is at Tony Ireland stadium, I would say bowlers would dictate play.
