Under-19 World Cup – Australia, South Africa into semi-finals as washout ends West Indies’ hopes


All said, though, it was India’s fifth win on the trot in the tournament proper, and they go into the semi-finals as one of the favourites to win the trophy – they have won it five times, a record. Dhas’ 116 in 101 balls and Saharan’s 100 in 107 balls were solid efforts, which meant India now have four century-makers out of the 11 in the competition overall. And their partnership of 215 for the fourth wicket, which took India from 62 for 3 in 14 overs to 277 for 4 after 47.4, was an indicator of the temperament of the two young men, who got in at a tricky point in the game and turned it all around.
