India beat Pakistan in tight finish

TOWNSVILLE – Harmeet Singh and Sandeep Sharma, India’s Nos. 8 and 11, batted with incredible composure for seven overs to score the ten runs they needed to drag a misfiring batting line-up to a one-wicket victory against Pakistan (136 all out) in the quarter-final of the Under-19 World Cup last night.

India were cruising one minute, at 120 for 5 needing 17 more, and were sinking the next, at 127 for 9. Harmeet and Sharma, however, saw to it that their consistent excellence with the ball in this tournament – they dismissed Pakistan so cheaply – was not in vain.

India meet new Zealand, while Australia clash with South Africa in the two semi-finals.
