Pakistan will now face 4-time champion India in the semi-final on Tuesday in Potchefstroom. Pakistan chased a 190-run target with ease after bowling out Afghanistan for 189. Tuesday’s semi-final will be a repeat of the semi-final of the 2018 edition of the U-19 World Cup held in New Zealand. India U-19, led by Prithvi Shaw, had thrashed Pakistan by 203 runs in the said semi-final encounter.
Shubman Gill had hit an unbeaten hundred for India who posted 272/9 in 50 overs. In reply, Pakistan was bundled out for 69 after a 4-wicket haul from Ishan Porel.
