Indian Bowlers Were Successful In Restricting The Pakistan Batsmen

Before the match began, Rohail Nazir, the skipper of Pakistan U19 won an important toss and opted to bat first. But, Muhammad Huraira, who had made a half-century in the quarterfinal was unable to repeat his daring action. In the second over of the innings, Huraina was dismissed by Sushant Mishra. 

Nonetheless, the scoreboard was remained ticking as Haider Ali expressed his class in the game. To get going, Fahad Munir also struggled a lot and within 16-ball duck, he was out on the bowl of the leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi. 

After a long struggle, later on, there was an infamous mix-up between two batsmen that has become a run-out hallmark of Pakistan which led to Qasim Akram to leave the pitch. For the team, Rohail Nazir was the key while the innings was again built by Mohammad Haris. To score quickfire of 21 runs they kept attacking the Indian bowlers.

But, in the deep, a stunning catch was taken by Divyansh Saxena to put a full stop to the enterprising innings and the game was turned to its head.

Finally, the chase was proved to be a cakewalk for India as not a single inch was given to the opposition by Yashasvi Jaiswal and Divyansh Saxena which would be helpful for the team to take it to the tournament’s final.
