Match Notes

  • Not the perfect Eid gift, but not bad

    Pakistan didn't produce a win against India for their supporters, but they didn't give in without a fight

  • Narrow loss very disappointing - Azam

    Pakistan came within one wicket of compensating for a calamitous batting performance in the Under-19 World Cup quarter-final against India. Their captain Babar Azam said the narrow loss was very disappointing

  • Harmeet and Sandeep do it, drip by drip

    The Indian team should be grateful to No. 8 Harmeet Singh and No. 11 Sandeep Sharma. Most of the India top-order batsmen should be watching videos of the duo's approach. They owe them big time

  • India clinch low-scoring thriller

    India pulled off a heart-stopping one-wicket victory over Pakistan in Townsville, to seal their place in the semi-finals of the Under-19 World Cup

  • Acclimatised Pakistan ready for India

    Pakistan had been constantly reminded of the different conditions awaiting them, which is why their quick adjustment during the three one-dayers against Australia had been a huge boost leading into the World Cup
