Already a lot of questions coming in about the trophy, I can confirm its going to be shared by the teams.

The presentation's about to start. The crowd seem to have all stayed on!

If I can anticipate how things are going to go, with a shared trophy there's also going to be a shared Man of the Match for this ACC U-19 Asia Cup Final between India and Pakistan.

And indeed Match Referee Rumesh Ratnayake of the ACC and Sri Lanka has chosen Unmukt Chand of India and Sami Aslam of Pakistan as his joint Men of the Match.

Sami Aslam is given the Batsman of the Tournament award

Sri Lanka's Tharindu Kaushal is awarded Bowler of the Tournament

And it's a huge golden trophy that Unmukt Chand and Babar Azam are handed, to loud cheers from the 2000 or so fans at the Kinrara Oval in Malaysia.

Both captains thank their supporters and their team-mates for taking them so far as we do to you for being with us these past nine days of this ACC U-19 Asia Cup. It has ended with India and Pakistan contesting another thriller, with their Final ending in a tie.

Coaches of both sides are coming up with a grin to tell me "cricket's the winner", and yes, it has been. Let's hope these players go on to represent their countries and the sport we all love with honour, creating more vivid memories for us to share.

Both teams move on to Australia where they join 14 others in the ICC U/19 World Cup in August. See you then.

Ehsan Adil to Kalaria, OUT

Phenomenal! Middled again but chipped rather than driven and mid-off at first backing away, finds the ball coming to him and he just turns to take the gentle offering. Kalaria slams his pads with his bat and the crowd of 2000 are ecstatic/relieved/disappointed all in turn - India turned victory into a tie and Pakistan turned a loss into a tie. "Interesting" yes, incredible even more so!

Ehsan Adil to Chand, OUT

OK, this is getting silly now. How much more "interesting" can it be? Chand hits a short ball, comes off the middle of the bat, almost too well, and to the cover-boundary fielder!

Ehsan Adil to Patel, OUT

incredible shot selection! Comes down the wicket half a stride to slash at a short ball, slices away to long-off, runs in and though Pakistan haven't made any catch look easy, they've clung on
