’69’ is a famous sex position and the defeat for Pakistan in the Under 19 World Cup semis to India could not have been any more unfortunate than being all out for 69. Now the Pakistan cricket team has become the center stage of witty jokes as 69 now means differently all together for the Pakistan cricket team.
India thrashed Pakistan by not just a few runs but by a mammoth margin of 203 runs to storm into the finals of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2018. As India gave Pakistan a stiff target of 273 to chase, the neighbors got all out for just 69 runs and became the butt of Twitter jokes.
STIFF TARGET SET BY INDIA
Batting first India gave Pakistan a target of 273 as Shubman Gill clobbered a brilliant century to see his team reach 272. Prithvi Shaw chipped in with a knock of 41 and stitched an 89 run opening partnership with Manoj Kalra who scored 47. In the lower middle order Ankul Roy played a handsome cameo of 33.

Shubman Gill has been in sensational form throughout the tournament. He completed his century in the last over of the innings and remained unbeaten on 102 from just 94 balls. This batsman is surely taking long strides in international cricket. People have already started to hail him as the ‘Next Virat Kohli’ given the similarities in their batting styles.
BOWLERS WRAP UP PAK IN JUST 29 OVERS
This is one of the biggest victories ever as Indian bowlers did the rest in the second innings. For India Ishan Porel was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up 4 wickets for 17 runs. Pakistan was bowled out for just 69 in 29.3 overs as India registered a historic and an authoritative win.

India beat Pakistan by 203 Runs in U19 W.C.Semi Final. Pakistan 69/10.
No one scored more than 18 runs in this Pakistani innings. I hope they understood the meaning of "Under-19" cricket correctly. #INDvPAK #ICCU19WorldCup @cric_blog
