Having retreated with the collapse of 6 of 26, Pakistan U19 cannot pose any challenge to the Indian U19 pair Yashasvi Jaiswal and Divyaansh Saxena, who took part in an undefeated position of 176 to lead the defending champions by defeating the ten-wicket team, wins the semifinals the first of the Under-19 World Cup in Potchefstroom. India's victory led them to the third consecutive final and closer to the U-19 World Cup the winner from New Zealand and Bangladesh will play in the final on February 9. Jaiswal reached a hundred years in the championship with six goals to win India, while Saxena remained undefeated in 59. Pakistan, which chose to hit, seemed on course to reach a respectable sum when it placed its first game Haider Ali and Captain Rohail Nazir in half a century for the third wicket. The duo helped Pakistan recover from 34 to 2 at nine, but Haider fell shortly after he reached his 50s while trying to cut out Jaiswal in half the time. With 96 vs. 3 in 26, Hider’s share marked the progress of Pakistan significantly, as Nazir saw four more in front of him. Rapid India, Sushant Mishra, and Kartik Tyagi did most of the damage, exchanging five shares between them, while Ravi Bishnoi finished two out of 10 injuries. The collapse of Pakistan began on Day 35, with a score of 146 for 4, and Saxena made a great effort on the deep square leg to cause the slide. It seems that Mohamed Haris' pass from left-arm spinning raised by Ankolekar was destined for four rebounds, but Saxena ran a pigeon of his entire length to complete the acquisition a few centimeters from the ground. This effort prompted other Indian players to improve their game, and Tyagi made three yorker strikes later to defeat Irfan Khan. Just five balls later, Vishnu managed to arrest Abbas Afridi with a controversial decision when Pakistan fell to 163 versus 7. And foreboding was given to 62, three, and 44, and ended 172.India's persecution began with caution, as Saxena and Jaiswal scored less than four goals for more than 15 games. They played the new ball in cloudy conditions with strong crosswinds blowing on the ground, which did not provide any opportunity for Pakistan to return to the game through early wickets.After Jaiswal got fifty out of 66 balls in 22, he started using his feet against the spindles to hit long or pull the pacemakers off the field. Saxena hit the ball on the floor for most of her roles and left Jaiswal the assailant. Saxena reached her fifties in the 1930s when she was driving to cover 83 balls, and the demand rate has now been reduced to two halves each. Saxena scored six goals while Jaiswal scored eight, four and six players, of whom one took a hundred and India won. After stamping the chase, Jaiswal raised his arms in the air, looked up and accepted the chain around his neck.Nazeer praised the archers in India for their effort but said that Pakistani strikers cannot reach their potential.Hard, but cricket is about the game. Team wins, and today we don't play cricket well. India was better in this area with bowling. "They beat us," said Nazer at the post-match press conference. When I was hitting Haider, we were improving. But after Haider jokes, we do not build associations."That's why the hitting squad failed to get big runs. With the hit, our pick of opportunity was weak at the decisive moment. Three mid-order texts at a low price fell in deflation. Because there weren't enough races on board the plane, our players cannot penetrate either. "The game got the best attendance of all the matches in the tournament so far, with followers from Pakistan twice as many as from India. Cheers, friendly and unfriendly, rang through GB Marx Oval from both sides, Pakistani voices dwindled as the game progressed. India has now reached the level with Pakistan regarding the U-19 World Cup record face to face on both sides. Jaiswal tops the race record lists in this edition, after winning the fourth score of more than 50 in five games. India's victory was also the first victory for ten wins in the knockout history of the U-19 World Cup. Read More: India vs New Zealand: Prithvi Shaw returns to Test squad; Mayank Agarwal replaces Rohit Sharma in ODIs
