The Prithvi Shaw-led India have been the most impressive unit in the Under-19 World Cup 2018 so far, having won both their Group B games against Australia and Papua New Guinea (PNG). They will now face Zimbabwe in their final game, at Mount Maunganui, before their march to the quarter-final. For Zimbabwe it is a matter of survival in the tournament. Even if they beat India they will have to hope for Australia losing to PNG, and then end on a superior net run-rate. Therefore, it is safe to say the chances look bleak.

In Group A, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will tussle at Whangarei for the quarter-final spot. Both have lost to Afghanistan and have beaten Ireland. In another Group D contest, Australia will take on PNG. Australia will be through to quarter-final with a win.

The live streaming of the India-Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka-Pakistan and Australia-PNG in the ICC U-19 World Cup will be on Hotstar. The live telecast of the India-Zimbabwe match will be on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports HD 1.
