India Beat Pakistan in U19 world cup By 1 Wicket

After a thrilling performance from both sides, India defeated Pakistan by one wicket in the third quarter-final of the 2012 U19 World Cup in Townsville, Australia, earning a place for itself in the semi-final, Express News reported on Monday.

Before this match, India enjoyed an overall 9-7 record against Pakistan in under-19 cricket.
Pakistan beat India in the semi-final of the 2004 event in Bangladesh, and in the 2006 final in Sri Lanka before overpowering them again in the quarter-final in New Zealand in 2010. In the inaugural event in 1988, Pakistan defeated India by 68 runs while India’s only victory in the U19 World Cup came in the 1998 event in Durban where it beat Pakistan by five wickets.
In the ongoing event, Pakistan remained unbeaten in Group B, while in Group C India suffered a shock defeat against the West Indies before it bounced back to win convincingly against Zimbabwe and PNG.
India captain Unmukt Chand, who has scored 104 runs so far, had termed Pakistan a ‘challenge’ but said his players were working hard to progress.
