India gained command of their ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014 match against Pakistan at Dubai on Saturday, as they got double breakthroughs in the 33rd over of the innings.

 

Sarfaraz Khan cleaned up Hassan Raza on the third ball of the over and on the fifth, Kamran Ghulam was run out for a duck as Pakistan lost their fifth wicket.

 

Pakistan reached 146 for four in 34 overs, requiring another 117 runs from 16 overs.

 

Earlier, Sami Aslam was run out for 64 in the 26th over as India fought back with quick wickets. Hassan Raza hit towards the off side on the third ball of the 26th over, and Aslam went for a run despite the striker not calling for it. The Indian captain was quick to collect the ball and send it to the non-strikers end.

 

This was after Spinner Aamir Gani provided India Under-19 a much-needed breakthrough when he dismissed Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq for 39.  Pakistan reached 115 for one halfway through, and need another 148 runs to win the clash.

 

Imam faced 62 balls and cracked two boundaries as he stitched a solid 109-run partnership with Sami Aslam in a bid to provide their side a strong start in a huge chase.

 

Sami was batting on 65, accompanied by Hassan Raza on one.

 

The Indian bowlers providing a strong start, not allowing the opposition batsmen to get away early on.

 

Earlier, Sanju Samson and Sarfaraz Khan added 119 runs for the fifth wicket to help India set a 263–run target against Pakistan in the seventh match of the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014 at Dubai on Saturday. Electing to bat, India scored 262 for seven from their allotted 50 overs.

 

Samson scored 68 off 101 balls and Sarfaraz hit a quickfire 74 to help India revive from a precarious position of 94 for four from 20 overs.

 

Sarfaraz played strokes around the ground as he was the more aggressive one in the 119-run stand between him and Samson, which set the platform for a competitive total.
