Pakistan have kept a stronghold over England in the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014 semi-final at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The general trend in the recent games in Dubai has been that the side batting first has lost a lot of wickets before taking the attack and crossing 200. One wonders if it would be enough for England in this game as the dew might come in when the sun sets. In 30 overs, England are 91 for four.


England were going stably but then Ed Barnard inside-edged one off Kamran Ghulam onto his stumps. Since then Ryan Higgins and Will Rhodes have batted with measure. Rhodes ended the boundary drought when he pulled Saud Shakeel over square for four. Higgins is closing in on his fifty and would want to convert it into a big one to help his side.
