Pakistan, India clash in U-19 World Cup semifinal Tuesday

February 3, 2020 01:18 PM


Confident Pakistan fancied their chances as they clash with arch-rivals and four-time champions India in the first semi-final of U-19 World Cup. Both teams go into the semifinal unbeaten. While Pakistan outplayed Afghanistan in the quarterfinals, India beat Australia.

Pakistan captain Rohail Nazir played down the hype surrounding the game but a Pakistan-India contest is always a high-pressure game which tests the character of players on either side. Doing well in the game makes them overnight stars and the players know that. "It is a high-pressure game and has a lot of buzz in the world. We will play it like a normal game and hope to do well," said Pakistan opener Mohammad Huraira after the win over Afghanistan.

Pakistani all-rounder Fahad Mueen said Pakistani team has been performing very well in the tournament. “They will give their 100 percent against India,” he told 24News TV.

Facing Pakistan fast bowlers Abbas Afridi, Mohammad Amir Khan and Tahir Hussain will be a challenge for the Indian batsmen. Opener Huraira made an impressive debut in the last game, scoring 64 to lead his team to a comprehensive win over Afghanistan after bowlers nicely set up the game.

Match will start at 1.00 pm Pakistan Standard Time on Tuesday.
