The first 10 overs were wicketless for Pakistan Under-19 and that put them under pressure because the score they put on the board wasn’t enough. However, Ali Raza came in and gave them their first breakthrough. Naveed Khan followed and sent back the skipper. Harjas Singh gifted his wicket by a run-out and Ubaid Shah cleaned Ryan Hicks up. Harry Dixon was the man in form and he had got to his half-century as well. Arafat Minhas did a tough job and cleaned up him, instilling some confidence in his team, and got the wicket of Tom Campbell as well. Ollie Peake, Tom Straker, and Mahli Beardman were sent back by the wonder kid, Ali Raza and he almost took them to the finals. However, the heroics of Rafael Macmillan and the defense of Callum Vidler pushed them to defeat. However, they should be proud of their performance and especially the bowling unit has some future stars for certain.
