Thanks for being with us for this slightly anti-climactic final but in the end Pakistan's skill-levels, shot-selection and discipline were greater than Afghanistan's. Somebody has asked us regarding the margin of victory, "does this mean Pakistan are twice as good as Afghanistan?". Well today they were actually, and quite a bit more. One looks forward to closer contests between them.

Aminul Islam of the ACC and Bangladesh is the Match Referee and with the crowd of 200 gathering, is yet to stride out and commence the post-match presentations. News of Usman Qadir who went off with a finger injury sustained in the field after bowling four overs, is that he's gone to hospital for X-rays.

And Man of the Match, presented by the PCB's Subhan Ahmad, is Imam-ul-Haq for his dynamic 69 and two significant catches.

Thanks for being with us, we look forward to welcoming you back for the semi-final and final .

Azizullah to Mohibullah Oryakhel, OUT
short outside off, swung round and goes high in the air to square leg, the substitute fielder (on in place of Usman Qadir) and Pakistan celebrate. They move forward to the ACC U-19 Asia Cup final on Sunday, where they will take on either India or Sri Lanka who play their semi-final tomorrow.

Its been all Pakistan so far today, apart from a few overs at the start of Afghanistan's innings, it has been Pakistan's batsmen and bowlers who've bossed things.
