ICC Under-19 World Cup, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

ICC Under-19 World Cup - Semi final

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

India Under-19s won by 3 wickets (with 9 balls remaining) (D/L method)


Southee to T Kohli, OUT, false stroke.... Southee pitches it short of a length outside off and gets it to move away, Kohli tries to drag that from outside the offstump by pulling, he gets a thick top edge and Morgan takes it running to his right from mid-on. He covered a fair bit of ground before taking the catch.

T Kohli c Morgan b Southee 10 (29m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.47

India Under-19s 24/1   SP Goswami 9* (18b 2x4)   TG Southee 3.5-0-9-1


Verma to Srivastava, OUT, Corey Anderson will have that framed for sure! Full outside the off stump, Tanmay shuffles across and flicks that uppishly just wide of mid-on, Anderson moves quickly to his left, the ball appears to drift further away from his outstretched arms but he wins the battle as he plucks that one handed just inches off the ground

TM Srivastava c Anderson b Verma 13 (26m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.90

India Under-19s 40/2   SP Goswami 11* (35b 2x4)   A Verma 1.1-0-2-1


Southee to Goswami, OUT, loss of concentration.... it wasn't the best of deliveries as it was pitched full and wide outside off, Goswami went for a booming cover drive but didn't get his feet moving, he ended up chopping it onto his stumps

SP Goswami b Southee 51 (115m 76b 5x4 0x6) SR: 67.10

India Under-19s 124/3   V Kohli 33* (35b 4x4)   TG Southee 5.5-0-16-2


Worker to V Kohli, OUT, captain catches captain.... pitches in the slot to drive outside off, Kohli drives that firmly on the up in the direction of the covers, Williamson at short cover flings himself to his right and plucks it inches off the ground

V Kohli c Williamson b Worker 43 (84m 53b 5x4 0x6) SR: 81.13

India Under-19s 150/4   SS Tiwary 16* (20b 2x4)   GH Worker 3.1-0-19-1


Southee to Pandey, OUT, tame dismissal really.... pitches on a good length outside off and straightens, Pandey tries to glide it towards third man but the ball isn't in the slot to play that, the extra bounce does him in and he gets a thick edge through to the keeper

MK Pandey c †Guptill-Bunce b Southee 18 (23m 26b 3x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

India Under-19s 177/5   SS Tiwary 24* (36b 2x4)   TG Southee 8.1-0-24-3


Southee to Jadeja, OUT, brilliant take and do we have a twist in the tale here? Pitches outside of and slants back in, Jadeja tries a delicate glide to third man, the edge goes low to Guptil-Bunce who goes to his right first and changes direction to his left and plucks it one handed on the dive

RA Jadeja c †Guptill-Bunce b Southee 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India Under-19s 180/6   SS Tiwary 25* (37b 2x4)   TG Southee 8.4-0-27-4


Boult to Iqbal Abdulla, OUT, panic sets in for India.... pitches just outside the off stump, Abdulla tries to glide it down to third man but the ball straightens, he gets a thin deflection and Bunce takes another catch

Iqbal Abdulla c †Guptill-Bunce b Boult 2 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

India Under-19s 183/7   SS Tiwary 26* (38b 2x4)   TA Boult 7.2-1-21-1
