Pakistan Under-19 267 for 6 (Azam 127, Shahzaib 50) v Sri Lanka Under-19 67 for 5 (Buddika 24, Bhatti 3-31). Match abandoned due to rain
Sri Lanka Under-19 will consider themselves fortunate, for rain abandoned their contest against Pakistan Under-19 after they were tottering at 67 for 5 in pursuit of 268 in Dambulla. Sarmad Bhatti grabbed three wickets, making early inroads into the Sri Lankan line-up, to put Pakistan in a position of dominance before rain undid his efforts.
Pakistan had been assertive in their batting performance and were boosted by a century from opener Babar Azam, who struck 14 boundaries. He was supported in a 102-run stand by Shahzaib Ahmed, who chipped in with a half-century. Though Pakistan stuttered towards the end of their innings, losing their last four wickets for 45 runs, the Sri Lankan reply showed they had adequate runs on the board.
