England lost the wicket of Ed Barnard as they are chasing 222 to win the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014 quarter-final against India at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Barnard and Ben Duckett had done well to help England recover from 40 for three. Duckett has been very inventive in his strokeplay and is marching towards his fifty. Barnard saw an Aamir Gani-delivery and slogged him across the line. However, he was caught by Sanju Samson on the boundary. India got the big wicket when they dismissed Duckett for 61.

 

England are 138 for five in 30 overs needing 84 more.

 

This is an important wicket for India as it breaks England’s momentum.

 

England had started off cautiously and eventually lost their way with the pacers bagging a wicket each, They were further pushed to the wall when Deepak Hooda dismissed Jonathan Tattersall in his first over. Since then both Duckett and Barnard have played well.
