India delivered a supreme bowling performance in the quarter-final clash against Australia in the ICC Under-19 World Cup to defend a low score in the crucial contest. The Priyam Garg-led Indian side choked the flow of runs from Australia as they romped to a 74-run win to seal a place in the semi-finals.
India’s bowling charge was led by new-ball bowler Kartik Tyagi, who ripped out Australia’s top-order with his ability to generate extravagant swing. Tyagi claimed four of the first five wickets to fall as Australia immediately imploded in pursuit of the modest 234-run target.
Only three Australian batsmen were able to reach double figures with Sam Fanning offering some resistance with his contribution of 75 runs. Akash Singh then rattled the lower order, prising out the three wickets to fall in the end. India will now face either Afghanistan or Pakistan in the World Cup semi-final.
