England Knock India Out of Under-19 World Cup

Dubai: Defending champions India were knocked out of the ICC Under-19 World Cup in the quarterfinal by England at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

Electing to bat, India posted 221/8 in their 50 overs which was chased down by the English side with five balls and three wickets to spare.

India were reeling at 24/4 in the ninth over when skipper Vijay Zol (48) played a patient 85-ball knock to take his side to safety.

The defending champions kept losing more wickets but top scorer Deepak Hooda (68) and a late surge by Sarfaraz Khan, who remained unbeaten on 52, helped India reach a respectable 200-par total.
