India have overcome a large scare against Scotland at the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014. Chasing a paltry target of 89, India were tottering at one stage as they were 22 for five at one stage. However Sarfaraz Khan and Deepak Hooda ensured there were no further hiccups as India sailed through.

It was a game dominated by the spinners. Scotland came on and lost two early wickets to the pacers, but after that Kuldeep Yadav, the chinaman and Aamir Gani, the off-spinner ran through the batting and bowled them out for 88.

Yadav’s chinamen were all over Scotland. He was getting prodigious turn and had them in all sorts of trouble. Nick Farrar played across the line and was caught at square-leg. Kyle Stirling was trapped leg-before as he shouldered arms to one that turned the other way. Yadav got his hat-trick when he bowled Alex Baum through the gate.

Gani also impressed with a lot of turn and in tandem they finished the tail. Both bowlers finished with identical figures of four for 28. Andrew Umeed was the best batsman for Scotland as he hit a measured 44, half the runs scored by his team.

India were always going to win, but then they were in early trouble. Akhil Herwadar was dismissed by Chayank Gossain early as he edged to the keeper. In a few overs, Vijay Zol edged to the slip. Sanju Samson and Ankush Bains took India to 19, but then both were dismissed. Samson may have been a bit unlucky as the ball was going down the leg-side.

Ricky Bhui was dismissed off the first ball as he spooned a catch to mid-wicket. Sarfaraz and Hooda came together then and took their time. But, once they got their eye in, they smashed the spinners and even charged to them. All that relieved the pressure and India got home with around 22.3 overs to spare. The defending champions would feel they just got out of jail.

Brief scores:

Scotland under-19 88 all out in 29.4 overs (Andrew Umeed 44; Aamir Gani 4 for 28, Kuldeep Yadav 4 for 48) lost to India under-19 92 for 5 in 22.3 overs (Sarfaraz Khan 45*, Deepak Hooda 24*; Chayank Gossain 3 for 31, Gavin Main 2 for 20) by 5 wickets.

Man of the Match: Kuldeep Yadav
