India Under-19 192 for 6 (Jadeja 94) beat Pakistan Under-19 191 for 8 (Sharma 5-36) by four wickets
India Under-19 completed a 4-0 series victory against Pakistan Under-19 after they won the final match at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore by four wickets. Sumeet Sharma's 5 for 36 helped restrict Pakistan to 191 for 8 and Ravindra Jadeja's 94 ensured victory in the 44th over.
Pakistan started poorly, losing their first three wickets for 60 runs. They began to rebuild the innings through a 52-run stand for the fourth wicket between Zeeshan Mushtaq, who was unbeaten on 44, and Rana Adnan, 38, but Sharma sliced through the middle order without allowing any partnerships to flourish. Abu Nechim Ahmed bowled a tight spell and conceded just ten runs from eight overs of which six were maidens.
Chasing just 192, India's innings also began badly with the first three wickets falling for 16 runs. However Jadeja, who was adjudged Man of the Match, put the chase back on track with an 82-run stand for the fourth wicket with B Sumanth. Jadeja fell six short of a well-deserved centry but Tanmay Srivastav, who was unbeaten on 25, steered India to victory.
This victory put the finishing touches on what has been an extremely successful tour. India had also won the four-day match series 2-0 before blanking Pakistan 4-0 in the one-dayers.
