48th over: India 137 for 9 Harmeet Singh (13 not out) does it for India. He and Sandeep Sharma (2 not out) showed great character. India will now play New Zealand in the semi-final. A thrilling game of cricket. That's it from us. We'll be back with India's semi-final against the Kiwis on August 23.

41st over: India 127 for 9 India's chase in tatters. Kamal Passi departs for a duck. Azizullah traps him in front of the wickets. India have made a mess of their chase. Wait, Ravikant Singh also goes off the last ball. Misses the line. India are on the verge of losing. What a turnaround. They are themselves to blame.

37th over: India 121 for 6 Hats off Aparajith. His innings of 51 has just come to an end. A great innings under pressure. Tries to clear the in-field on the offside but finds Waheed in the covers. An excellent jumping catch. Zia-Ul-Haq is the Indian batsman's perpetrator.

33th over: India 109 for 5 Baba Aparajith and Smit Patel are doing just the right thing for India. Both have shown great concentration, especially Aparajith. It would be safe to say that now it's India's match to lose.

27th over: India 84 for 5 Another Indian batsman bites the dust. Azizullah finds an edge off Nath's bat as the batsman pokes at the ball. Wicketkeeper Salman takes an easy catch behind the wickets. Both teams are on a level footing as of now.

Meanwhile, New Zealand need 238 to win against West Indies in another quarterfinal. They are 130 for 4 after 30 overs. It doesn't seem to be going easy for them.

25th over: India 75 for 4 Disaster for India. Zol, who was looking so good, runs himself out. There was no run. Another twist to the tale.

Baba Aparajith and Vijay Zol have brought India’s chase back on track in their ICC Under-19 quarterfinal against Pakistan at the Tony Ireland Stadium in Townsville on Sunday.

Chasing 137 to win, the Indians were limping at 8 for 3 at one time, but thanks to Aparajith (24 not out) and Zol (34 not out) they are back in it. India are 69 for 3 after 23 overs.

Earlier, Pakistan, after electing to bat, failed miserably against Indian bowlers Sandeep Sharma (3 for 24) and Ravikant Singh (3 for 43) and skittled for a meagre 136 in 45.1 overs. Babar Azam top scored for the Pakistanis with 50.
