4.45pm WI beat Bangladesh to enter the U-19 World Cup finals. They will face India in the showpiece game. Great chase that in tough conditions against a quality line-up. It was all started by Pope who showed really positive intent from the start. After they lost a few wickets, it was Hetmyer and Springer who compiled lovely fifties under pressure. Bangladesh never went away, and fought and fought and fought. But eventually, they just did not have enough runs on the board. Great game of cricket for everyone involved

Shamar Springer is the Man of the Match: "A lot of pressure but I overcame it today. I listen to a motivational speech before each game and tell myself I am a champion. I'm quite adaptable. I call my dance the chestroll."

Mohammad Saifuddin to Springer, FOUR runs, there is the game. Springer does a jig after sealing the win for WI. Overly full outside off, creamed through the covers to take WI into the finals. Bangladesh are dejected. Great game though.

Scores are levelled

7 off 12. Saifuddin has the ball. Can he get through Springer?

Roshan: "I remember Ind vs Zim in 1999. Olonga took 3 in second last over to finish the game. That was shock of life as a young Indian cricket fan."

Mohammad Saifuddin to John, no run, full on middle and leg, massive appeal. Not given out though. Too much doubt, I reckon. The batsman comes down for a run but is sent back. Would have been out if the keeper had hit

This game is not over yet.
