Pakistan Under-19s won by 3 wickets and enters the final. An absolute cracker of a match, who would have thought of such an outcome when Pakistan lost their 7th wicket for 142, but this tournament had lot of miraculous 8th wicket partnership and tonight it worked for Pakistan with bright colors. Zafar Gohar kept his calmness and all the way he was guiding Amad to this victory, that's really brilliant under such an intense pressure. Zafar Gohar named Man of the Match. That's all we had from this first semi-final. This is Kumar Chandan signing off; Good night, cheers!
