The 173-run target for India U19 team looked like a cakewalk as they crushed Pakistan U19 by 10 wickets to enter their third straight final of the U19 World Cup and inch closer to their 5th title.
This was India’s 2nd successive mammoth victory over their rivals Pakistan in U19 World Cup. In the 2018 edition of the tournament, the Indian colts had bowled Pakistan out for mere 69 runs after setting a target of 274 runs.
After India U19’s dominant victory on Tuesday former India cricketer Virender Sehwag took to Twitter to take a dig at Pakistan saying India have now become habitual of defeating their neighbors in the cricketing field.
