That's all we have for you from here. Thanks for your company and comments. Hope you keep with us on ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the Under-19 World Cup. Goodbye.

"We got Josh, Tom and Rory and to see McClintock and Lorcan bat, plenty of positives," Jack Hector says, "In the Warm up games, that was the case as well. We struggled in the middle overs, but we can work on that. But the way Josh bowled with such pace was fantastic. We always thought we had the chance, but it was a disappointing start to the run chase with a couple of silly run outs. having watched the senior side in the past, they always done that [never give up] and we just wanted to follow them"

"We lost some early wickets, but Sarfaraz and Washington batted well," says Ishan Kishan. "The bowling unit was doing very well, the fielding was also really good. There was some pressure, but there are people who can score runs at the back, so we weren't that tense. We were confident with our bowling unit also. We hope the openers do better next game. Short ball was a plan, at this level you need them. We needed early wickets because we didn't score 300 or something. It wasn't just the bouncers though. Taking some time to play yourself in initially is important in these conditions, that's the thing we learnt today."

Sarfaraz Khan is the Man of the Match. "happy, but not satisfied because I have to do more. Initially there was lot of pressure, but I just wanted to stay on the wicket as much as possible. Trying my best with legspin. Ireland have been good, they bowled very well. I hope to go well. [Short ball tactic] Dravid is a really good coach and our fast bowlers are doing really good with the new ball and the slog overs too"

4.15 pm A couple of run outs got India going, but those chances were created by Avesh Khan and Khaleel Ahmed, the new-ball bowlers, creating a lot of pressure in their first spells. Ishan Kishan, the captain, had a slip deep into the innings because his bowlers showcased an admirable array of skills. The quicks had bounces and various kinds of slower balls. The legspinner Ansari had a good googly and a flipper too. Ireland accumulated too many dot balls, and though Will McClintock and Lorcan Tucker struck solid half-centuries, it never seemed like they had a chance.

Lomror to Tucker, OUT, excellent catch running in from short fine leg. Tucker goes for the lap sweep, fails to keep it down, Batham watched it all the way, propelled himself in a dive and finishes the game off. The broadcast highlights that this is India's 11th consecutive win

Batham to Chopra, no run, back of the hand slower ball outside off, left alone.
Batham to Tucker, 1 leg bye, another slower ball at 124 kph has the batsman in a little bother. Tucker had gone for the pull shot and completed it ages before the ball reached
Batham to Tucker, no run, well bowled, back of the hand slower ball dupes the advancing batsman. Lovely skill shown from the Indian bowlers
Batham to Tucker, no run, reverse swat, while stuck in the crease. Tucker seems to have a lot of weird shots, but he has not been making much connection with them

Varun Chopra is the last man in

Batham to Stanton, OUT, steps down the track and slices the ball, forgets the keep it down, and it sails down the throat of Lomror at deep cover. Slower ball works for the bowler this time

  • Sarfaraz hungry for bigger scores

    India Under-19s batsman Sarfaraz Khan, who scored 74 in India's 79-run win against Ireland in Mirpur, has expressed disappointment at not being able to convert his fifty into a bigger knock
