The Australian bowlers were made to sweat. Add another four to that, on the last ball of the over. He tosses the ball up, but Gill is quick on his feet, and drives the ball through the off-side for a four. The Indian bowlers were equally guilty of bowling too short, something that Merlo and Uppal dealt extremely well by rocking back onto the backfoot and sending the ball crashing towards the point boundary. Pakistan therefore finished in third place, as they finished their group ahead of Afghanistan on.
Ishan Porel to Rohail Nazir, 1 run 3. He went hard after a ball outside off and slashed it for Desai, who had dropped a chance earlier, to take a fabulous catch. Riyan Parag to Shaheen Afridi, no run Riyan Parag to Shaheen Afridi, no run Riyan Parag to Shaheen Afridi, no run Riyan Parag to Shaheen Afridi, no run 20. It was the twelfth edition of the , and the third to be held in New Zealand after the and. Rohail Nazir made 18 runs while Saad Khan contributed 15 runs with the bat. The were the defending champions.
Gill was outdone by a smart piece of work from Param Uppal, to whom he danced down the wicket and got bowled for 31— his first score of under 50 in the tournament. He has one wicket to his name. Following the group stage fixtures, Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa had all qualified for the Super League quarter-final stage of the tournament. But Desai unbeaten on 47 showed no nerves, and along with Kalra took India over the line with a four towards extra cover, shortly after Manjot had reached his century. The long journey began in Essex in England in July and August with three teams, Netherlands, France and Denmark, moving up from Europe Division 2; three more teams, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Tanzania qualified from Africa Division 2 which was held in Potchefstroom, South Africa in August; and a busy year will come to a close with Asia Division 2 being held in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, Thailand from 9th to 17th December where the top two teams will progress to the next stage. The other eight teams moved to the Plate League to determine their final placements in the competition. I don't want to mention names but everyone in the support staff has put in a great effort.
The breakthrough was provided by Ishan Porel, once again getting into the thick of things and removing both openers in a span of four overs. In reply, Pakistan were bowled out for 69 runs in 29. Anukul Roy and Abhishek Sharma also got a wicket. Pakistan against India for a place in the final! Kalra got vital partnerships going with each batsman he batted with — 71 with Shaw, 60 with Shubman Gill and an unbeaten 89 with Harvik Desai and formed the fulcrum around which the chase revolved. Prithvi Shaw is on strike. Every team will have the opportunity to play four 50-over contests against the other teams in their group with matches being played at Terdthai Cricket Ground and at the Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok, and at Gymkhana Club and at David Buck Oval at Prem International School in Chiang Mai.
Another partnership blossomed for Australia with Nathan McSweeney supporting Merlo well for 49 runs, until the batsman offered India a second caught and bowled. We do the best for the kids. Indian fast bowlers Kamlesh Nagrakoti and Shivam Mavi have impressed with their testing pace so far and it remains to be seen if legendary coach Rahul Dravid fields them again or keeps them fresh for the quarter-finals.

Ishan Porel to Ammad Alam, no run Ishan Porel to Ammad Alam, no run Ishan Porel to Ammad Alam, no run Ishan Porel to Ammad Alam, no run 7. Barring an upset win for Zimbabwe tomorrow, India and Australia will progress to the quarterfinals from Group B. With five down, Merlo remained the key for Australia but Shaw rotated his bowlers so well that the boundaries dried up and Australia banked heavily on rotating strikes.
The tournament will be the third to be held in New Zealand, making the country the to stage the event thrice. New Zealand was the first country to host the event three times. The plate tournament will run simultaneously but end with the final at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Christchurch on 28 January. With spinners Shiva Singh and Abhishek Sharma operating in tandem and runs not easy to come by, the Australian innings showed character through Jonathan Merlo and Uppal as both batsmen began collecting boundaries at ease. Manjot Kalra scored 47 runs after hitting seven fours while Prithvi Shaw made 41 runs with the help of three boundaries and a six. The opening ceremony took place on 7 January 2018.
Muhammad Musa grabbed four wickets for Pakistan while Arshad Iqbal dismissed three Indian batsmen. The group matches will be played over six days from 9th to 14th December with games being played on all four grounds each day no fewer than four times in an extremely busy schedule for players and officials. In the second semi-final, India beat Pakistan by 203 runs to advance into the final. India kept delivering telling blows and that mounted the pressure on Merlo, who finally perished for 76, lofting a reverse sweep for Shiva to take the catch in the deep and make Anukul the joint highest wicket-taker in the tournament. The impact of his knock can be gauged by the fact that his partners — Shaw and Gill seemed content playing second fiddle. The event is staged every two years with the next competition due to take place in South Africa in January and February 2020 with India looking to defend the trophy they won in New Zealand in 2018. The side will face Australia in the grand final while Pakistan will face Afghanistan for the third place.
However, they failed to defend their title, after losing their first two group fixtures. Vidarbha bowler Aditya Thakare, called as a cover for an injured Ishan Porel, might get a chance. India will top the Group with their third win a row and will be followed by Australia, who have two wins from three matches. Play gets underway at all four grounds in Bangkok and Chiang Mai at 9. Skipper Jason Sangha signalled his arrival with a boundary but struggled to rotate strike since. India's top-order batsmen, led by skipper Prithvi Shaw, are also in sublime form and are yet to be tested under difficult situations. The 50-run partnership was brought up off 68 deliveries and was beginning to look threatening.
