The live coverage of India vs Pakistan Under-19 World Cup semi-final clash will begin at 3 AM. The arch-rivals will go up against each other once again in a power-packed contest at Hagley Oval, Christchurch. India have not had worries against any opponent they have faced in the tournament so far. Whether it is Australia, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe or Papua New Guinea, Prithvi Shaw-led side has crushed their opponents and won by a big margin.
On the other hand, Pakistan had a shocker in the inaugural match of the tournament where they were beaten by Afghanistan. They made their way into the semi-final with an easy win against Ireland followed by nerve wracking games against Sri Lanka and South Africa.
As far as statistics are concerned, India have dominated Pakistan in the Under-19 circuit as well. Out of 21 games, India have won 12 and lost 8 games whereas one ended in a tie.
The last time India met Pakistan in a World Cup event, they won the match, thanks to Sanju Samson’s innings and Deepak Hooda’s five-for. Here’s a look back the Dubai 2014 clash –
