2:46 PM IST Time for the presentation ceremony...
2:45 PM IST Earlier in the game, New Zealand Under-19's skipper Oscar Johnson won the flip of the coin and inserted India Under-19 into bat. Adarsh Singh got himself going with a couple of crisp boundaries, but Arshin Kulkarni perished in following suit. Despite Arshin's early departure, Adarsh and Musheer Khan ensured that India had their best Powerplay of the competition. Both batters looked at utmost ease in the middle and got to their respective fifties without breaking a sweat. Adarsh could not carry on, but Musheer continued on his merry way with skipper Uday Saharan, who had a scratchy stay at the crease. Despite the fall of a couple of wickets, Musheer batted sensibly to get to his second hundred of the competition. Musheer's 131, followed by the contributions from the lower order, took India to 295. For New Zealand Under-19, Mason Clarke was the star with the ball, with career-best figures of 4 for 62 from his eight overs.
2:38 PM IST As far as New Zealand Under-19 are concerned, they were outclassed in both departments and it was a defeat they would want to put behind them quickly. Moreover, their net run rate has taken a hit and their chances of making it to the semis have taken a big, big blow. Despite finishing strongly with the ball, it was still going to be a tough chase for the Kiwis against the formidable Indian bowling unit. They were off to the worst possible start as they lost two wickets without a run on the board. The Kiwi batters looked all at sea against pace as well as spin and just could not get going. Having lost four wickets in the first Powerplay, New Zealand Under-19 could never really recover and it soon became a fight for survival. Oscar Jackson, Zac Cumming and Alex Thompson hung in there but soon ran out of patience and the tail could not wag either which saw them being rolled over for 81.
2:29 PM IST A statement win by India Under-19 to kickstart their Super Six campaign! The defending champions have handed the Kiwis a real drubbing by 214 runs to put one foot in the semis of the 2024 Under-19 World Cup. Biggest margin of win so far for Uday Saharan and his boys and it is their third victory with a margin of 200 runs or more in the competition. For India, Raj Limbani set the tone with a wicket off the first ball before striking again to cap off a double-wicket maiden in the first over. In a move that took the Kiwi batters by surprise, Saumy Pandey was given the new ball from the other end. The decision soon paid rich dividends as Pandey struck twice in successive overs to pile the misery on the Kiwis. Naman Tiwari got into the act soon after he was introduced as did Musheer Khan. Brought back into the attack, Pandey added a couple of wickets more to the tally before the centurion, Musheer completed the formalities. India were relentless with the ball and did not give the Kiwi batters an inch.

Musheer Khan to Ewald Schreuder, no run

OUT! TIMBER! Musheer Khan finishes things off in style. Fires this one fuller and on leg, from around the wicket, Ewald Schreuder moves back and looks to slog it on leg side but misses the line completely. The ball skids through the gap between bat and pad and rattles the leg stump. India Under-19 have ripped apart the Kiwi batting lineup to win by a massive margin of 214 runs.
