While batting first, Pakistan was bowled out for 155 runs against the Bangladeshi bowling attack.

Pakistan U19 skipper Saad Baig said that he is thankful for this win.

Saad said, “I told my team that we will defend whatever the target may be. I believed in all my bowlers. Whenever I give my plans to the bowlers, I believe they’ll go with it. We have a good team and good unity in the team, we will do our best. We have the opportunity to win the World Cup, we will do our best.”

Ubaid Shah was awarded the player of the match for his five-fer.

 

Congratulations are in order for Pakistan’s young guns:
