Bowlers provided India a strong start, not allowing Pakistan batsmen to get away as they were 21 for no loss after seven overs, chasing 263 to win in the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014 at Dubai on Saturday.

 

Sami Aslam was batting on four not out, accompanied by Imam-Ul-Haq on nine.

 

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.
