U-19 Asia Cup: Pakistan beat India by 8 wickets


Pakistan steadily chased the target of 260 runs against India, with Azan Awais leading the charge with a brilliant century.

The unbeaten partnership between Azan and Saad Baig put Pakistan in a commanding position, and the Green Shirts chased down the target with eight wickets remaining.

Azan Awais stood like a pillar to score an unbeaten ton, 105(130) while Saad Baig scored 68(51) not out.

Shahzaib Khan made 63(88) and Shamyl Hussain scored 8(15) for Pakistan.

Both wickets of the chasing team went to Murugan Abhishek whose figures remained 55-2.

Earlier, India posted a score of 259 for 9 due to half-centuries from Adarsh Singh, Uday Saharan, and Sachin Dhas.

While Adarsh contributed 62 runs, Uday’s individual score was 60. Pakistan’s tight pace bowling attack initially kept India under control, but the partnership between Adarsh and Uday for the third wicket shifted the momentum of the match.
