In Cricket, India will face Australia in the U19 World Cup final on Sunday at Willowmoore Park in Benoni, South Africa after the Hugh Weibgen-led side beat Pakistan yesterday by one wicket in a nail-biting thriller in the second semifinal. Opting to bowl first, Australia bowled out Pakistan for 179 in 48.5 overs, with Azan Awais and Arafat Minhas scoring half-centuries and Tom Straker picking up a six-wicket haul.
Earlier this week, India defeated South Africa to stay on course for a record-extending sixth Under-19 World Cup title. The Uday Sharan-led side beat the Proteas by two wickets in the semifinal to book a spot in the final clash. (AIR NEWS)
