So India win two out of two, and top the points table. Looking at the net run rates of their opponents in the group, India's 2.850 feels untouchable. They next play USA to finish off their group games, but are entirely certain of making it to the Super Six already. This is it from us today, as Srinidhi, Sudeep and me, Himanshu, bid you goodbye!

Musheer Khan is the Player of the Match: "I feel great to have hit my first hundred for India Under-19. I hurried on a bit for runs in the last match, so I gave myself some time in this match. Both our styles [his and Safaraz's] are similar. The six I hit over midwicket was the best! I am glad, and I hope I can play as well in the upcoming matches. I'm not satisfied yet!"

4.21pm It feels like ages have passed since Ireland were 45 for 8 in the 15th over. The ninth wicket added 39 and the tenth 16 to take Ireland to three figures, with Tiwari's 4 for 53 and Pandey's 3 for 21 leading India with the ball. But before that, it was the 156-run stand between Musheer, who cracked 118, and captain Saharan, who hit 75, that set the base for India's massive 201-run win.

Saharan to Lutton, OUT

ahh, Saharan gets the final wicket! And the joy on his face reveals the relief. He went on a length on middle and off, with the ball keeping low as Lutton looked to slash. He missed, and the ball went on to hit the stumps as there was a hint of turn away
