Highlights, India vs Pakistan, Semi-final, U19 World Cup 2020, Full Cricket Score: India thrash Pakistan by 10 wickets, storm into final


20:09 (IST)

India reach the final. Well, they have made it a habit in junior World Cup. Indians were just too good for Pakistan today. The difference was how the nerves were handled. Kartik Tyagi started bowling attacking line from Ball Number 1. Jaiswal and Saxena looked at ease from Ball number 1 while chasing. Sheer calmness and composure by the opening batsmen outclassed the Pakistanis. India through to the final where they will either be playing New Zealand or Bangladesh. The final will be on 9 February. Do join us then. For now, take care and good bye. 

20:05 (IST)

Priyam Garg, India U19 captain: Very happy to reach the final. We are going to focus on the trophy. One step closer to it. I think we have the best pace attack in the tournament. All fast bowlers can build up good pace and spinners bowl right line and length. The spinners compliment the pacers well. This is not the first time they (Jaiswal and Saxena) have done this. They have been batting like this for last one year. They have great co-ordination. They also come from the same state so thay understand each other very well. I think we would like to focus on the same process and play the final as just another game. 

20:04 (IST)

Pakistan captain Rohail Nazir: We didn't have enough runs on the board and the wicket looked good for batting in the second innings. We should have scored more and we had two decent partnerships in the middle-overs and when too many wickets fall, the pressure obviously mounts and I had to score a boundary and that plan didn't work too. India were brilliant in the field. We were always on the backfoot. They batted really well so full credit to them. The boys have a lot to take from here. I'm sure we'll learn how to comeback in such crunch situations.

19:49 (IST)

Yashaswi Jaiswal is Player of the Match for his unbeaten 105.

Jaiswal: It is a dream come true for me. I am happy. I did this for my country. I will never forget this ever. This hundred against Pakistan in a World Cup. This is a start. I will work harder. We were talking that we need to stay there as wicket was pretty good to bat on. Pakistan bowled well initially but we planned to stay as long as possible. It is all hardwork. All of us, physio, support staff, their effort has worked wonders. Also, so many Indians who have prayed for us. 

19:42 (IST)

India are in final!
HUNDRED! Jaiswal finishes it off in style. He has done it, tossed up delivery from Aamir and he smashes this over cow corner for six, reaches his maiden U19 WC hundred and celebrates it by looking above at the heavens and then punching his fist in the air later. India through to the final. And what a peformance this has been from the boys in blue. Still unbeatable since the 2016 World Cup final defeat. Magnificent.  

19:40 (IST)

After 35 overs,India Under-19 168/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 99 , Divyaansh Saxena 59)

Qasim back on. Just one over for Tahir. He had bowled a maiden over but has been taken off strangely. Jaiswal making full use of the opportunity and smashes one for a maximum, then takes two to reach 99. Five to win. One for Jaiswal's ton. Will he get it? 

19:38 (IST)

FOUR! Short ball from Qasim, Jaiswal goes on back foot and smashes to cow corner for a boundary. 

19:36 (IST)

After 34 overs,India Under-19 161/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 93 , Divyaansh Saxena 58)

Rohail is off the field now courtesy of an injury. He was looking in extreme pain as he walked out. Haris to keep in his place but not for long. Jaiswal and Saxena may end this match soon. Just 12 runs needed for win. Five off the over. 

19:33 (IST)

Injury Update: Rohail is going back to dressing room as he seems to have suffered a grave injury. He looks in pain. Haris will keep in his place. 

19:32 (IST)

OUCH! Pakistan keeper and captain Rohail has been hit on his right leg while keeping and is down on ground. Physio is having a look at him. He will get some treatment and hopefully will be up soon. 

19:29 (IST)

After 33 overs,India Under-19 156/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 92 , Divyaansh Saxena 56)

Tahir Hussain comes back on. One question that comes to mind is why was he held back for such a long time for another spell? Pakistan stuck to spinners, thinking for a miracle. Lack of creativity and planning against Indian opening batters has only made job easy for the boys in blue. Maiden over. India U19 need 17 runs.

19:24 (IST)

After 32 overs,India Under-19 156/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 92 , Divyaansh Saxena 56)

Aamir continues. Starts off with a wide. Two off the first ball. Followed by two dots. Two runs off the next two balls and ends with a dot. Five runs off the over. Indi U19 need 17 runs to win. Jaiswal is in 90s. 

19:21 (IST)

After 31 overs,India Under-19 151/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 89 , Divyaansh Saxena 55)

India are racing away with this. 18 runs came off the Afridi over. Jaiswal with two lusty blows, both maximums, in the last over, has brought India very close to the win. He is on 89 and India need 22 to win. He should get to his hundred. 

19:19 (IST)

FOUR! Bad ball, too wide, enough room for Saxena to guide it for four runs to third man. 

19:18 (IST)

SIX! And now a short ball from Afridi, Jaiswal pulls it away for another maximum over backward square leg.

19:17 (IST)

SIX! Length ball, Jaiswal shuffles across and smashes the ball over deep mid-wicket for a maximum

19:17 (IST)

After 30 overs,India Under-19 133/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 76 , Divyaansh Saxena 50)

Fahad Munir continues after the drinks break. Saxena too gets to his fifty. What a time to bring your best. This is his second fifty in the tournament. India U19 need 40 runs. 

19:16 (IST)

Half century for Divyaansh Saxena. He has been rock solid and along with Jaiswal has taken India very close to the final spot in the U19 World Cup. Top knock, his second fifty in the tournament. 

19:11 (IST)

After 29 overs,India Under-19 128/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 74 , Divyaansh Saxena 47)

This is called bossing around. He had been silently dealing in singles for some time and now he in unleashing himself is Jaiswal with some lusty blows and intelligent strokes to score runs quick runs. This has been one classic knock from the UP-born Mumbai batsman. India U19 need 45 runs.

19:09 (IST)

FOUR! Down the leg stump line, Jaiswal tickes it down for four more to fine leg region. This is easy. 

19:08 (IST)

FOUR! Length ball, Jaiswal comes in line and smacks it over cow corner boundary for four runs. 

19:07 (IST)

After 28 overs,India Under-19 116/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 63 , Divyaansh Saxena 46)

Fahad Munir continues. Easy going Indians, stealing runs in singles and slowly inching closer to win. Saxena is on 46. And should score his second fifty of the tournament soon. 

19:04 (IST)

After 27 overs,India Under-19 113/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 61 , Divyaansh Saxena 45)

Abbas Afridi back into the attack after a long spell of bowling by spinners. He is still coming round the wicket. No change of angle to try something new. Just 2 off the over but just stopping runs would not do much for Pakistan at this stage. India U19 need 60 runs.

18:59 (IST)

After 26 overs,India Under-19 111/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 60 , Divyaansh Saxena 44)

Fahad completes another over. Just two off it. But India unworried. There are too many deliveries left and both are in no hurry here. India U19 need 62 runs to win. They are in total control. 

18:57 (IST)

After 25 overs,India Under-19 109/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 59 , Divyaansh Saxena 43)

Qasim Akram continues. Two dots to start with but both these balls could have been hit for runs. Yet there is no fuss in either Jaiswal and Saxena to play a risky shot. Just 3 off the over. India U19 need 64 runs.

18:56 (IST)

18:55 (IST)

After 24 overs,India Under-19 106/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 57 , Divyaansh Saxena 42)

Fahad Munir, right-arm leg break, brought into the attack. India had brought in Jaiswal to try and pick up some wickets when Pakistan were batting and he straightaway had picked one wicket. Maybe Munir is expected to do the same job. Just 2 off the over. India U19 need 67 runs to win.

18:52 (IST)

After 23 overs,India Under-19 104/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 56 , Divyaansh Saxena 41)

Qasim Akram continues and this is looking far too easy in the middle. Easy on eyes. Difficult to do what the two have done. Such calmness and compsure, while chasing a target in a World Cup semi-final - easier said than done. India U19 need 69 runs.

18:49 (IST)

After 22 overs,India Under-19 101/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 54 , Divyaansh Saxena 40)

Jaiswal knows a thing or two about chasing the target. He is choosing just the right balls to play the boundary shots and then runs hard between the wickets to convert singles into doubles. Proper limited overs cricket. Great co-ordination between the teo batsmen. 100-run stand comes up between the two. India U19 need 73 runs to win.

18:46 (IST)

FOUR! Finds the gap on the leg side and Jaiswal collects four runs at deep mid-wicket, reaches his fifty, in a semi-final, raises his bat and shows everyone the team he plays for, by pointing at his jersey - INDIA!

18:45 (IST)

FOUR! That is just perfect. It does not get better. Length ball from Amit and Jaiswal plays a lofted on drive for four runs. 

18:45 (IST)

After 21 overs,India Under-19 89/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 42 , Divyaansh Saxena 40)

Qasim Akram continues. Three dots to start with and then three runs off the next two balls. Ends the over with a dot. Three off the over. India U19 need 84 runs to win. Pakistan just cannot find the first wicket. Helpless in the middle.

18:42 (IST)

After 20 overs,India Under-19 86/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 39 , Divyaansh Saxena 40)

Aamir continues and bowls a good tight over before the inside edge off the bat ruins it all. Saxena is now into 40. India need 87 to win. This is a cakewalk from here. 

18:41 (IST)

FOUR! Inside edge off the bat and the ball runs away for four runs to fine leg. Runs added to Saxena's total. 

18:39 (IST)

After 19 overs,India Under-19 81/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 38 , Divyaansh Saxena 36)

Qasim Akram returns to the attack. The ease and calmness the two opening batsmen have showed oozes class and maturity. This Indian U-19 team have shown great level of professionalism with both bat and ball. The result of playing more than 30 matches between the last World Cup and this edition is there to be seen. Job is still not done but have to say India cruising in this chase. WITHOUT ANY TROUBLE. India U19 need 92 runs.

18:32 (IST)

After 18 overs,India Under-19 77/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 36 , Divyaansh Saxena 34)

Aamir continues. Jaiswal and Saxena making it look very easy out in the middle. He gets the right length to flex his muscles and powers the ball over deep mid-wicket for a six. The target now is below 100. India need 96 to win. 10 runs off the over. Drinks called. 

18:30 (IST)

SIX! Coming in to Jaislwa, slow in pace from Aamir, and he smashes this over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. 

18:29 (IST)

After 17 overs,India Under-19 67/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 27 , Divyaansh Saxena 33)

Abbas Afridi continues. Five dots in the over before he went too straight in line and was whipped for two in the leg side by Saxena. He should be coming from over the wicket maybe in the next over to try another angle. Two runs off the over. 

18:25 (IST)

After 16 overs,India Under-19 65/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 27 , Divyaansh Saxena 31)

Aamir Ali, left arm orthodox, brought into the attack. Huge LBW appeal on the second ball, denied by the umpire. Saxena powers Aamir for four runs in front of square. Pakistan completely on back foot here. India going strong. Seven runs off the over. 

18:23 (IST)

FOUR! Good shot from Saxena, around the middle leg stump line, Saxena sits on one leg, reaches out for it and smashes it in front of square for four runs. 

18:20 (IST)

After 15 overs,India Under-19 58/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 27 , Divyaansh Saxena 25)

Abbas continues. He manages to produce an edge off Saxena and that falls just short of first slip. Jaiswal ticks the fourth ball of the over for two after seeing the deep square leg fielder sent to third man. There are plenty of runs in the leg side and both the batters are making sure that they run hard to collect runs after tapping the ball on that side of the wicket. Six runs off the over. India in total control in this chase. 

18:15 (IST)

After 14 overs,India Under-19 52/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 23 , Divyaansh Saxena 24)

Qasim continues. Jaiswal collects two boundaries in the over, one with a on drive and another with a cover drive. Textbook batting happening currently in the middle. Eight runs off the over. Fifty has also come up for India on the board. 

18:14 (IST)

FOUR! Jaiswal uses his feet, comes forward and drives it through the covers for four runs. Textbook stroke. 

18:12 (IST)

FOUR! Good stride forward from Jaiswal and he drives it beautifully through mid on for four runs off Qasim. 

18:12 (IST)

After 13 overs,India Under-19 44/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 15 , Divyaansh Saxena 24)

Abbas continues. He is running in hard from round the wicket to bowl at the two left-handed batsmen. There is no movement whatsoever on offer and wonder if he is looking to attack the stumps from this line. The two batsmen, however, have not looked at any discomfort with that attack so far. Saxena gets one easy delivery, and he makes most of it, collects four at wide third man region. Pakistan pacers putting in a lot of effort yet the wickets are hard to come by here. 

18:10 (IST)

FOUR! Saxena stands tall to the rising delivery, back foot punch through point for four runs. 

18:07 (IST)

After 12 overs,India Under-19 40/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 15 , Divyaansh Saxena 20)

Qasim Akram returns to the attack to bowl his off spinners. Starts off with four dots before Saxena drives it through cover for one run. And that's that from this over. Just one off it. Pakistan still searching for the first wicket. 

India vs Pakistan, ICC U-19 World Cup 2020 Semi-Final 1, Live Updates: HUNDRED! Jaiswal finishes it off in style. He has done, Tossed up delivery and he smashes this over cow corner for six, reaches his maiden U19 WC hundred and celebrates it by looking above and pumping his fist in the air later. India through to the final.

Preview: Cricket fans will be up for a treat when India and their arch-rivals Pakistan square off in the ICC U-19 World Cup 2020 semi-final 1 clash. This will be the tenth time both the countries’ respective youth sides meet in the U-19 World Cup, with Pakistan having won five of the previous nine meetings.
The last time the two teams met in the global tournament was not too long back and was at the exact same stage – the semi-finals in 2018. The Boys in Blue rode on Shubman Gill’s century to register a total of 272-9 in Christchurch, and Ishan Porel ran riot during Pakistan’s run chase to finish with four wickets as the Boys in Green were bundled out for just 69 runs.

Yashasvi Jaiswal has been India’s top-scorer in this edition, amassing 207 runs with three fifties to his name.

Meanwhile, leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi has impressed with his brilliant bowling in the tournament so far. He features in the top-10 wicket-takers’ list with 11 scalps, which includes two four-wicket hauls.

Abbas Afridi has been the top performer for Pakistan, with nine wickets so far.

Both India and Pakistan are unbeaten in the tournament so far. The bowlers played a crucial role in India’s quarter-final victory over Australia with Kartik Tyagi and Akash Singh up picking four and three wickets each. Meanwhile, Mohammad Amir Khan and Mohammad Huraira did the star turn for Pakistan in their last-eight win over Afghanistan with three wickets and an unbeaten knock of 64. It will be a clash of pace attacks between the two sides and it will be fascinating to see which one comes out on top.
