Khaleel, Sarfaraz star as India beat Pak in U-19 warm-up tie
Dhaka: A brilliant five-wicket haul by pacer Khaleel Ahmed followed by Sarfaraz Khan’s quickfire 81 helped India post a comfortable five-wicket victory over arch-rivals Pakistan on the final day of the warm-up matches of the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup here on Monday. In a match which was reduced to 45 over-a-side due to a delayed start, Pakistan opted to bat first but failed to capitalise on the advantage. Led by left-arm seamer Ahmed, India dismissed Pakistan for a mere 197 in 44.1 overs and then surpassed the target in the 34th over itself to fashion a convincing and morale-boosting victory. (PTI)
