Sami Aslam and Imam-ul-Haq stitched an unbeaten 93-run stand for the first wicket, providing a strong start to Pakistan in their chase of 263 in the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014 match against India at Dubai on Saturday.

 

Pakistan reached 93 for no loss in 21 overs, and need another runs to win from the remaining 29 overs.

 

Aslam was batting on 46 while Imam was on 36.

 

The Indian bowlers provided a strong start, not allowing the opposition batsmen to get away early on, as they were 21 for no loss after seven overs.

 

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.
