Highlights, India vs Australia, Quarter-Final, U19 World Cup 2020, Full Cricket Score: India beat Australia by 74 runs, storm into semi-finals


21:14 (IST)

India through to the semis. They started off very shakily but have ended the day on a high note. Australians looked threatening during the chase with Scott and Fanning beginning to open up but a wicket came just at the right time for the Indians. Two more wins and the World Cup will be India's again. But don't think Garg and Co are looking at it like that. They will be playing the semi-finals either against Bangladesh or Pakistan on 4 February at Potchefstroom. Let's who makes the cut. We will be back with the coverage of the semi-final game. For now, take care and good bye. 

21:10 (IST)

Priyam Garg, India U19 captain: We had a good start but Australians bowled well later on. We lost three wickets and had we taken responsibility, we could have scored 260-plus. We were confident of the score in mid-innings break. Our lower order batted very well to take us to 233. We knew we had the total to defend. Ravi and Atharva batted and bowled very well. We have built this team for the last one and a half years and that is why our team spirit is good as we know each other very well. We are here to play and win each match. We are not looking at knockout matches differently, we want to take the momentum into the semi-finals. 

21:08 (IST)

"The first 40 overs, we were right on top of India. Their tailenders batted really well and took the game away from us. We had the batting to chase the total down but our top order couldn't get going. But credit to Fanning. Looking forward to the next few matches." 

- Australia skipper Mackenzie Harvey

OUT! Akash Singh castles the stumps and India are through to semi-finals. Yorker length from Akash to Willans who completely missed it and the ball did the rest. Australia are out of the tournament. India win the first quarter-final by 74 runs. 

20:51 (IST)

After 43 overs,Australia Under-19 158/9 ( Tanveer Sangha 1 , Matthew Willans 2)

Tyagi is doing what his seniors do in the national team, run in hard in the slog overs and bowl pitch perfect yorkers. Bumrah and Co will be very proud watching this spell of bowling. Sangha and Willans were able to block those yorkers in this over. Australia need 76 runs in 42 balls. India need one wicket. 

20:47 (IST)

After 42 overs,Australia Under-19 156/9 ( Tanveer Sangha 0 , Matthew Willans 1)

Akash Singh continues. Two dots to start with. And then he bowls a short delivery which has finally gives him the big wicket Fanning back in the hut. Jurel then with a good throw to pick up the eighth wicket. Akash came back to pick up the ninth with a lovely inswinger. India just one wicket away from booking the semi-final spot. An over has just changed the course of the game. 

20:44 (IST)

OUT! One more, Akash with an inswinger, castles Murphy's stumps and celebrates, India get their ninth wicket and they are just one wicket away from the semi-final spot. Murphy b Akash Singh 0(1)

20:43 (IST)

OUT! BOOOM! Keeper Jurel with a bull's eye behind the stumps, removes Sully, who was looking to complete the run at the batting end. He called for the runs after Sangha tapped the ball right behind the stumps, Jurel ran in quickly, collected the ball and threw at the stumps. Sully run out (Dhruv Jurel) 5(3)

20:39 (IST)

OUT! Here comes the big wicket for India and Akash, Fanning attempts a pull but does not get it right, ball kissed the gloves and went to the keeper behind the stumps, who took a good diving catch to his right. That's the end of a very fine knock by Fanning. Sam Fanning c Dhruv Jurel b Akash Singh 75(127)

20:35 (IST)

After 41 overs,Australia Under-19 155/6 ( Sam Fanning 75 , Connor Sully 5)

Bishnoi removes Scott and India are back in this. Scott was disappointed when the umpire raised his finger as if he had not nicked it. Connor Sully, right handed bat, comes in to bat. Six runs in the over and a wicket. Australia need 79 runs in 54 balls.

20:34 (IST)

FOUR! Sully comes in to bat and he starts off with a boundary to fine leg off Bishnoi. 

20:32 (IST)

OUT! Bishnoi delivers, on the first ball of his ninth over, quicker delivery from Bishnoi, googly in fact and it took the thin edge and keeper Jurel collected it safely. Big wicket for India. Sixth down for Australia. Liam Scott c Dhruv Jurel b Ravi Bishnoi 35(71) 

20:30 (IST)

After 40 overs,Australia Under-19 149/5 ( Sam Fanning 74 , Liam Scott 35)

Akash Singh comes into the attack and beats Fanning on the first ball. It almost took the inside edge to the keeper. But Scott is opening up now. That six was a strong statement of what he is capable of doing if the asking rate jumps even further. Indian camp looks a little nervous now. Australia need 85 runs in 60 balls. This is very achievable. 

20:28 (IST)

SIX! Pulled away for six by Scott, short one from Akash and Scott used all his power to clear the ropes easily at deep mid-wicket. Terrific shot. 

20:25 (IST)

After 39 overs,Australia Under-19 141/5 ( Sam Fanning 73 , Liam Scott 28)

Ravi Bishnoi is back on. Scott plays two dots and then takes one. This won't work for them and put more pressure on Fanning. Huge appeal for caught behind by Jurel but the umpire was unmoved. This match is now open. Australia need 93 runs in 66 balls.

20:21 (IST)

After 38 overs,Australia Under-19 139/5 ( Sam Fanning 72 , Liam Scott 27)

Siddhesh Veer continues. No run off the first ball. Two runs collected at fine leg on the second ball of the over. Veer tossed it up next and Scott wanted to clear the long off region but failed to connect it. The big shot was around the corner and it did come on the last ball of the over as Fanning came down the track and tonked it over long off. Australia need 95 runs in 72 balls.

20:21 (IST)

SIX! Here comes the big six, Fanning comes down the track against Veer and hits it over long off for a big six.

20:16 (IST)

After 37 overs,Australia Under-19 130/5 ( Sam Fanning 66 , Liam Scott 24)

Tyagi is done with his seventh over and he could be removed from this end to keep him fresh and ready for the last few overs if this reaches to that stage. Tyagi went short and wide on the penultimate ball of the over and was cut for four runs. This game is slowly and steadily changing its course and India should be aware of that. 

20:15 (IST)

FOUR! Nice shot, short ball from Tyagi and Fanning cuts it away through point for four runs. 

20:11 (IST)

After 36 overs,Australia Under-19 123/5 ( Sam Fanning 60 , Liam Scott 23)

Siddhesh Veer back into the attack. No runs off the first two balls. Australians now looking to run hard between the wickets. More aggression from Scott on the last ball of the over as he attempted a heave but it went straight to the fielder in the deep on the leg side. 

20:08 (IST)

After 35 overs,Australia Under-19 118/5 ( Sam Fanning 57 , Liam Scott 21)

Kartik Tyagi comes back on. Short stuff from him in this over and time has come for India to pick up a few wickets as the partnership continues to grow. 

20:02 (IST)

After 34 overs,Australia Under-19 116/5 ( Sam Fanning 57 , Liam Scott 20)

Ankolekar continues and we see aggression from the two Aussie batsmen. One four and six in the over, before this over, Ankolekar had not conceded a single boundary. 11 runs off the over. 

20:01 (IST)

SIX! Here comes the big shot, Fanning slow sweeps Ankolekar for a massive six over deep mid-wicket

20:00 (IST)

FOUR! Welcome boundary for Australia and Scott, first boundary conceded by Ankolekar, fired at the legs of the batsman who guided it to long leg boundary for four runs

19:58 (IST)

After 33 overs,Australia Under-19 105/5 ( Sam Fanning 51 , Liam Scott 15)

Akash Singh continues after drinks and he is working the hard yards, applying his back and bowling short stuff at the batsmen. He is looking for bounce outside the off stump region. Just 2 off the over. 

19:52 (IST)

After 32 overs,Australia Under-19 103/5 ( Sam Fanning 50 , Liam Scott 14)

Ankolekar continues. Fanning completes a fifty. He should carry on. Scott at the other end has taken too many deliveries now to get settled. He needs to move on now and take risks. Let Fanning hold one end together, let him bat throughout. Risk is the order of the moment. Drinks called and we might see different set of plans from Aussies post the drinks. 

19:50 (IST)

Fifty for Fanning, he takes a single by tapping the ball to cover and completed a well-deserved half century, this has come in a quarter final against India in testing times but he needs to go on and on and on. 

19:48 (IST)

After 31 overs,Australia Under-19 101/5 ( Sam Fanning 49 , Liam Scott 13)

Akash Singh comes back on. Well, hello, Fanning intentionally elbows Akash as he takes a single. The pacer did made a point to the umpires following this incident. Fanning is on 49 and has worked hard for his runs. At this stage of the chase, he should be focussing on where his elbow his falling while batting and not getting engaged in such encounters. Akash does a good job in the over. Just 2 runs in it. 100 up for Australia in the 31st over. 

19:43 (IST)

After 30 overs,Australia Under-19 99/5 ( Sam Fanning 48 , Liam Scott 12)

Ankolekar continues. The second ball of the over was an arm ball and it almost did in Scott. It is dangerous to play Ankolekar on back foot, especially with that angle being created from round the stumps. Scott cut Ankolekar again very close to the stumps on fifth delivery of the over. This is very risky. Just 2 off it as pressure continues to build on Australians.

19:41 (IST)

After 29 overs,Australia Under-19 97/5 ( Sam Fanning 47 , Liam Scott 11)

Bishnoi continues. Indian captain Priyam Garg has rotated bowlers well here. Bishnoi still have three left in his quota after the end of 29th over. Ankolekar has four left and they will continue to soak runs from two ends or Aussies will try and take them on, which will always keep Indians interested. One boundary in the over by Fanning. Five runs off the over. 

19:38 (IST)

FOUR! This is good cricket from Fanning, he scoops Bishnoi for four runs to fine leg. 

19:37 (IST)

After 28 overs,Australia Under-19 92/5 ( Sam Fanning 43 , Liam Scott 10)

Atharva Ankolekar back on. Two runs off the first two balls followed by two dots. One run to deep cover and then a dot to finish the over. That makes it three runs from the over. Australia still playing the waiting game as the asking rate continues to climb up. 

19:34 (IST)

After 27 overs,Australia Under-19 89/5 ( Sam Fanning 42 , Liam Scott 8)

Bishnoi continues. Fanning approaching a well-deserved fifty as he enters the 40s. The runs hard to come by against the spinners as usual. The Aussies have been over defensive against slow bowling. 

19:31 (IST)

After 26 overs,Australia Under-19 88/5 ( Sam Fanning 42 , Liam Scott 7)

Sushant Mishra continues. Aussies need a move on big time. They got a boundary in the over but that was off the edge. Indians have been very good with the ball in hand but Australians need to pick their bowler to score the runs off as the asking rate goes above 6. 

19:28 (IST)

FOUR! Edge off Fanning's bat and it beats the first slip, beats the widish third man fielder for four runs. 

19:27 (IST)

After 25 overs,Australia Under-19 82/5 ( Sam Fanning 37 , Liam Scott 6)

Ravi Bishnoi back on after a short break. Fanning has been rock solid today for the Aussies. He taken 85 balls for his 37 runs but more importantly he has stayed put at one end. Bishnoi completed a decent over. Just 2 off it. We are halfway through in this chase. 25 overs gone and Australia still need 152. 

19:24 (IST)

After 24 overs,Australia Under-19 80/5 ( Sam Fanning 36 , Liam Scott 5)

Sushant Mishra is back into the attack. He was bowling well, when he was fuller and then he went short on the last ball and was punished. There is a lesson already. Bowl fuller and try to swing, the results will be there. Was a good over untill the last ball. Six runs off the over. 

19:23 (IST)

FOUR! Short and wide from Sushant Mishra and Fanning upper cut it for four runs to third man boundary. 

19:19 (IST)

After 23 overs,Australia Under-19 74/5 ( Sam Fanning 31 , Liam Scott 4)

Tyagi continues. Bishnoi has been stellar in the field for a while. In the last over, he gave his everything to stop the ball from touching the ropes on the last ball and in this over, he stopped a certain boundary with a superb dive at backward point region. Tyagi building up good speed and is looking to attack the stumps, bringing the ball in to the right-handed Scott. He has more control in his deliveries in this spell. Just 1 off the over. This is terrific stuff from India.

19:14 (IST)

India's Yashasvi Jaiswal has scored 207 runs so far and occupies the second position in the list of the leading run-getters in the 2020 U-19 World Cup.  

He could well finish on top given his consistency. 

19:14 (IST)

After 22 overs,Australia Under-19 73/5 ( Sam Fanning 30 , Liam Scott 4)

Ankolekar continues. He is just the right kind of bowler to bowl from the other end to Tyagi. A wicket has just fallen and Ankolekar will make sure the new batter has hard time rotating the strike. This is super stuff from Ankolekar as he gives just 1 in this over. 

19:12 (IST)

After 21 overs,Australia Under-19 72/5 ( Sam Fanning 29 , Liam Scott 4)

Tyagi comes back into the attack and boy, oh boy, he delivers on the very first ball. Good length ball, moves away and takes the edge with it as it leaves the batsman. Liam Scott, the new batsman in, almost fell victim to the very first ball he faces but it was going down the leg stump line. Ends the over with a boundary. 

19:11 (IST)

FOUR! Half volley to Scott and he drives it through the gap in the covers for four runs. Bishnoi with a great attempt at the ropes but could not stop it. 

19:07 (IST)

OUT! Tyagi comes in, begins a new spell and on the very first ball, he removes Rowe, good lenth, around the off stump line, seam angling towards slip, ball leaves the batsman as he drew forward to play the shot, takes the edge and goes to the keeper who takes a safe catch. Australia five down. Patrick Rowe c Dhruv Jurel b Kartik Tyagi 21(40)

19:05 (IST)

After 20 overs,Australia Under-19 68/4 ( Sam Fanning 29 , Patrick Rowe (W) 21)

Atharva Ankolekar continues. Just 1 off the over. He is showing great discipline. Stopping runs very important at this stage and he is doing that job. Aussies will look to keep the partnership going. 

19:02 (IST)

After 19 overs,Australia Under-19 67/4 ( Sam Fanning 29 , Patrick Rowe (W) 20)

Siddhesh Veer continues. Has been quicker in pace in this over Veer. Should stick to tossing it up for a while. India need to look for wickets. Singles came easily in this over. 50-run stand for the fifth wicket up between Fanning and Rowe. Five runs off the over. 

18:59 (IST)

After 18 overs,Australia Under-19 62/4 ( Sam Fanning 27 , Patrick Rowe (W) 17)

First sight of Atharva Ankolekar with the ball in hand as the left arm orthodox, comes into the attack. He will continue to bowl wicket to wicket. Just 2 runs off the over. Spinners are doing a good job for India.

18:56 (IST)

After 17 overs,Australia Under-19 60/4 ( Sam Fanning 26 , Patrick Rowe (W) 16)

Siddhesh Veer continues. He is getting help when he is tossing it up. Let's see how often he does that. Rowe played and missed one tossed up delivery. Also, he is looking to bowl at the right handed batsman from round the wickets. That is an interesting ploy to work with. Just 2 off the over.

India vs Australia, ICC U-19 World Cup 2020 Super League Quarter-Final 1, Live Updates: Akash Singh castles the stumps and India are through to semi-finals. Yorker length from Akash to Willans who completely missed it and the ball did the rest. Australia are out of the tournament. India win the first quarter-final by 74 runs.

Preview: Spinner Ravi Bishnoi's repertoire of skills will meet a match in Australian Tanveer Sangha's variations in a face-off between two talented tweakers during the quarter-final of the ICC U-19 World Cup here on Tuesday.

The white ball cricket in recent times has seen wrist spinners emerge as an important cog and junior cricket is no different where Bishnoi, easily the tournament's most impactful bowler, would like to give his team the advantage over the Australian side.

With 10 wickets from three games and game-changing 4 for 30 against a gritty New Zealand side, Bishnoi has proved why Kings XI Punjab has invested Rs 2 crore on him during the auction.

Statistically, even Sangha has been at his best with 10 wickets with 5 for 14 against minnows Nigeria. But there's been a four-wicket haul against the West Indies and a wicket to show against England for the player of Indian origin.

On Tuesday, both the wrist spinners will be key to their team's chances and Australia will look to improve their dismal record against India at the junior level.

In the last five U-19 encounters since 2013 (different teams have played though), India have won four with one game being abandoned due to rain.

As a team, India are way ahead both in terms of quality as well as temperament with the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal (two half-centuries), his opening partner Divyansh Saxena and skipper Priyam Garg showing glimpses of their talent.

In the bowling department, lanky UP boy Kartik Tyagi, who breaches the 140 kmph barrier quite regularly, and left-arm seamer Akash Singh, moving the white ball back into the right-handers, are a heady combination.

And there is left-arm spinner Atharva Ankolekar, who came back brilliantly against the Junior Black Caps despite being attacked early on. He got three crucial breakthroughs but a finger fracture in his right hand could be an impediment while fielding.

While Jaiswal, Garg, NT Tilak Verma and Saxena make India's batting look strong, Australia skipper Mckenzie Harvey (nephew of former Australian all-rounder Ian Harvey) is a tough customer with the bat as he showed with an innings of 65 against England in their final group game.

Then there is Conor Sully, who bowls brisk medium pace and also has the ability to use the long handle to good effect.

The Teams (from):

India U-19: Priyam Garg (capt), Akash Singh, Atharva Ankolekar, Shubhang Hegde, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Dhruv Jurel, Kartik Tyagi, Kumar Kushagra, Sushant Mishra,Vidyadhar Patil, Ravi Bishnoi, Shashwat Rawat, Divyaansh Saxena, Tilak Varma, Siddhesh Veer, Divyansh Joshi.

Australia U-19: Sam Fanning, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Mackenzie Harvey(c), Lachlan Hearne, Oliver Davies, Liam Scott, Patrick Rowe(w), Tanveer Sangha, Connor Sully, Todd Murphy, Bradley Simpson, Liam Marshall, Corey Kelly, Matthew Willans, Cooper Connolly.
