1:11 PM IST Shahzaib Khan is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his excellent unbeaten knock of 80 runs from 86 balls. He starts off by thanking the almighty. He continues that has confidence from the last match. Adds that in this match, he waited for a couple of overs and when he gained momentum he carried it on.

1:09 PM IST Time for the presentation ceremony...
1:09 PM IST Earlier in the game, New Zealand Under-19 captain Oscar Jackson surprised everyone after electing to bat in overcast conditions. The ball nipped around early on, and it looked like New Zealand had dug a hole for themselves as they lost three wickets inside the first three overs. Ollie Tewatiya began the rescue act first with skipper Oscar Jackson and then with Lachlan Stackpole. Stackpole was quick to put the pressure back on Pakistan and began to counterattack his way out of trouble. Just as it looked like Pakistan were beginning to lose their grip on the game, they fought back to remove Stackpole and Tewatiya. It all went downhill for the Kiwis once that partnership was broken, as they lost the last six wickets for just 23 runs to be bowled out for 140.
1:06 PM IST Despite having only 140 runs to play with, New Zealand Under-19 were hopeful considering that teams had huffed and puffed while chasing low totals here in East London. The Kiwis needed early inroads to stand any chance, but they failed to get any. Even though their pacers kept things quiet early on with tight lines and lengths, Pakistan had the luxury of taking their time. Skipper Oscar Jackson rang on changes in search of a breakthrough, but it wasn't to be as the two Pakistan openers did not give them an inch and handed them a drubbing. All is not lost though for New Zealand Under-19 as they have qualified for Super Six and will go in as the second-best team of Group D.
12:58 PM IST Pakistan Under-19 have steamrolled their way to victory here in Buffalo Park! They make it three wins out of three and will go into the Super Six as the top-ranked team of Group D. Moreover, this is Pakistan's first-ever win by 10 wickets in the history of Men's Under-19 World Cups and the manner of victory will put them in good stead for the upcoming games. In pursuit of a modest total, the Pakistan openers adopted a watchful approach at the start of their innings. Having realised that the surface was not offering much help to the bowlers, Shamyl Hussain and Shahzaib Khan started playing their shots and found boundaries at will. Shahzaib was the aggressor of the two batters and crushed any hopes of a New Zealand fightback. Shahzaib remained unbeaten on 80 while Shamyl stayed not out on 54. Both batters batting through till the end was the icing on the cake for Pakistan Under-19.

FOUR! What a way to win! This has been an absolutely flawless run chase from Pakistan Under-19! This one is a low full toss on middle and leg. Shamyl Hussain gets down on one knee and sweeps it uppishly but to the left of the rushing deep square-leg fielder. All smiles in the Pakistan dugout as they cruise home here against New Zealand Under-19 by 10 wickets!
