Indian skipper, Priyam Garg, admits they wanted to field first as well. Tells their openers started off well but they lost their way in the middle and lost wickets, hence they failed to get to 260. Tells they knew they had a very good score as they felt they had the bowling attack to defend 180-190 but was happy that the lower middle order could take them to 230. Tells that team spirit and team combination does not come in a month or two. Tells they have been playing and preparing for the past 18 months. On how pleased is he to be in the semi final, Garg says that all the games for them are the same as they play with the same intensity as every team that comes wants to win the cup.

Australian skipper, Mackenzie Harvey, says that it is not an easy loss to take. Adds they gave it their all and credits India for the game they had. Tells they hardly did anything wrong with the ball. Says he does not regret bowling first. Adds the Indian tailenders scoring 80 runs off the last 10 overs hurt them. Tells the wicket was not easy to bat on but was good enough to chase 230. Credits Fanning for keeping them in the chase. Admits that the changing room atmosphere was not great at 17/4. Knew they had batters to come who could have changed things. Admits that things could have been different had they got a good start.

For his superb exhibition of fast bowling and demolishing figures of 8-0-24-4, KARTIK TYAGI HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Tyagi says that the ball was swinging well and he is happy to perform well for the team especially after not being at his best in the last two games. Tells he bowled too many wides in the previous matches, so here he was just trying to maintain his lines and lengths. On the semi final, Tyagi says no one knows what will happen in the future so he is just hoping to perform well in the coming contest.

Earlier in the day, the Australians bowled really well to restrict India to a score of 233. Australia did well to take 3 wickets soon in the innings. Yashasvi Jaiswal played a very good innings at the top scoring 62 runs but he did not get any support until the pair of Ravi Bishnoi and Atharva Ankolekar did really well to add valuable runs down the order. The wickets were spread across the Australian bowling attack but the pick of them was Matthew Willans who used the pitch very well and suffocated the Indian batters at the start bowling consistently well. Stay tuned for the presentation which is coming right up!

Coming to the bowling of the Indians, Kartik Tyagi was the superstar as he dismantled the Aussie top order with his 4-fer. The other bowlers also kept things tight. Akash Singh took the all-important wicket of Sam Fanning and wrapped up the tail as well while Ravi Bishnoi dismissed concussion substitute Liam Scott. All in all, it was a very professional and thorough bowling performance from the Indians.

It was a dream start for the Indians as Australia shot on their own foot. On the first ball, Jake Fraser-McGurk departed for a diamond duck as he was run out. Two more wickets fell in the same over as Harvey and Hearne both departed off Tyagi's bowling. Tyagi also sent Oliver Davies packing and Australia found themselves at 17/4. After that came the resistance, as opener Sam Fanning and Patrick Rowe combined to form a 51-run stand. Just when it looked the Aussies would get a move on, Tyagi struck again to send Patrick Rowe back. He was a thorn for the Australians and ripped through their batting line-up. Liam Scott then combined with Fanning for an 81-run stand. It looked like this would be a match-winning one for the Aussies but Ravi Bishnoi dismissed Scott and that broke the Australian resistance as they folded from 149/5 to 159 all out. The Australians were feeling pretty hard done by from some of the decisions made by the umpires but they could not do anything about it.

What a performance from India! Usually it is with the bat but this time, the defending champions have completely dominated with the ball and convincingly defeated Australia to progress to the semifinals of the ICC U-19 World Cup!!!

OUT! Bowled! Akash Singh has wrapped up the innings! Superb performance from the defending champions, especially with the ball. Full and straight on middle and off. You miss, I hit stuff from Akash. Willans looks to drive but misses and the ball goes onto hit the middle and off poles. INDIA WIN BY 74 RUNS!
