Post of the Week
After being knocked out in the quarters it's only pride to play for now.

Good luck young boys. Match is starting in about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Does this count as a tournament game and will the stats of players be added to their tournament runs?
Unfortunately it isn't being shown on Sky Sports, but I'm sure the host broadcaster will be covering the game so we could find a stream...
Sad to see no one reporting about the match. Looks like no one cares.

Anyways, West Indies 24/2 after 5.4 overs.
Isn't this match being telecasted? Anyways, good chance for Mir Hamza, Shahid Ilyas to shine. Mir already took 2 wickets, so good sign.
Mir Hamza, where have you been?!? 3 wickets in his first 4 overs of the U-19 World Cup! West Indies Under-19s 27/3 (8.0 ov) #u19cwc

Great stuff from Mir Hamza! :14: Let's hope he can be another talented pacer alongside Adil, Zia!

I am more angry at the decision of batting first against India!

Had we bowled first we could have dismissed them for under 100 runs!
Just realised that they're not playing at the Tony Ireland stadium so I don't think this is being telecasted.
BOWLED! Mohammad Nawaz strikes to leave West Indies teetering at 72/5 after 20.4 overs. #u19cwc
Still regretting the decision to bat first against India....
If only Mohammed Nawaz could have gotten India's number 11 batsman out, anyways it is good to see that we are dominating this match
Bratwaithe is still there. That kind of explains why he already has played Test cricket for windies.
At the 30th over mark, Windies are 5/99. Braithwaite is the key wicket still in.
If they're not hitting the stumps when they're bowling, they're doing it from the field! RUN-OUT!!! WI Under-19s 110/6 (32.4 ov) #u19cwc
Great stuff by Pakistan; West Indies 114/6 after 34 overs. Let's bundle them out for 150, and then chase it down with ease. Go Pakistan!
Usman Qadir catches another one of his balls for his 2nd and the team's 7 wicket! West Indies Under-19s 132/7 (39.0 ov) #u19cwc
2 more run-outs in the span of 4 balls! The Pakistani fielders are on fire! West Indies Under-19s 153/9 (42.5 ov)
Zia-ul-Haq hits the stumps to take the last wicket! West Indies Under-19s 182 (49.0 ov). Pakistan will bat in around 45 minutes. #u19cwc
Pak innings is underway. 0-5 in the 3rd over. Seems like everyone has found the windies quicks hard to handle.
Sami and Imam both out for 2. Batting again down to Babar to save the day.
Just to clarify on today's game. The winner will play England for the 5th spot while the loser plays Bangladesh for 7th spot.

So either way Pakistan U-19s have one more game to play on Friday.
Pakistan not going well here. Imam has fallen as well. Let's hope Babar and Waheed make a good partnership here, because if a wicket falls now, we may as we'll be in big trouble.

37/2 after 13 overs.
Hmm, thanks for that Genghis. So suppose we lose today and then lose to Bangladesh on Friday as well, we come 8th and don't play anymore games right?

Anyways, gotta say that MashaAllah Babar has been in tereffic form this WC. Add his bowling abilities, and he has a very good future for Pakistan. A way better version of Hafeez. Long may it continue. :)
I think Babar needs to bowl more overs. Who knows, maybe he is a better bowler then Hafeez as well. After all, he does know how to ball the Doosra. :ajmal

BTW Babar and Waheed making good progress, both hit a boundary each just now. Good stuff. :)

Pakistan 51-2 after 16 overs.
Pakistan Under-19s require another 112 runs with 8 wickets and 30.0 overs remaining
Another half century partnership between Babar Azam and Umar Waheed, but again Waheed went soon after. Hopefully we don't see another middle order collapse.

Faraz Ali playing his first game of the World Cup is in. Let's see what he's got.
Babar should be given a shot for Pakistan in ODIs when Pakistan go to Zimbabwe later this year, but I'm pretty sure our selectors won't allow that to happen.

Anyways, Babar and Waheed were playing some good cricket, sad to see Waheed out. Now let's hope Babar, new boy Faraz, and Nawaz can guide us home. We also have Afridi and Qadir ho are capable of batting, but let's hope it doesn't come to that.

1 more wicket and it could go either way.
And as I say that, Babar gets :out :(

Need a good partnership here, because 1 more wicket and we'll be in danger.
This is not a good batting display from the boys bar Waheed and Babar. Afridi, Nawaz have huge roles to play here. Qadir will also be very crucial.
Sami Aslam last few scores against U19 teams from full time countries in Aus:

2, 0, 18, 10, 4, 26, 5

Another FTB?
just need to play sensible cricket. take the singles dont lose wicket for 10 overs
