U-19 India Cricket team storm into semi-final showdown against Pakistan
India made a statement by beating Bangladesh by 131 runs to land a tantalising semi-final against arch enemies Pakistan.
The three times Under-19 World Cup champions put on a fine display with Captain Prithvi Shaw winning the toss and opting to bat first. Vice-captain Shubnam Gill was once again in the thick of the runs scoring his third consecutive fifty.
Bangladesh put on a brave fight with Qazi Onik eventually taking Gill out. As they took to the batting field it was only Pinak Ghosh who top scored with 43 for Bangladesh.
As one of the tournament favourites, India just proved too much and will now face Pakistan on Tuesday in Christchurch.
England lose by three wickets to Australia bringing their lead in the ODI series to 3-1
