India vs Australia, U-19 World Cup quarterfinals: Kartik Tyagi ripped apart the Australian top-order.

India U19 vs Australia U19, World Cup 2020 Highlights: Leading the attack with the ball, Kartik Tyagi and Akash Singh scalped four and three wickets each to help India beat Australia by 74 runs at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Tuesday. While Tyagi ripped apart the Australian top-order, Singh took the crucial wicket of Sam Fanning and helped the Men In Blue wrap the Australian tail inside 44 overs.

Chasing 234, Australia started off on a dreadful note as they lost four early wickets. Opener Jake Fraser-McGurk returned to the pavilion in the first delivery of the Australian inning without facing a single ball and Tyagi followed it up by picking two more wickets in the same over. He then went on to dismiss wicket-keeper batsman Patrick Rowe in his fourth over.

Akash dislodged the Australian tail after dismissing Fanning on 75, as they lost three wickets in consecutive deliveries in the 42nd over. He then followed it up by packing Matthew Willians on 2, as Australia were bundled out on 159 in 43.3 overs

Earlier in the day, and unbeaten 54-ball 55 by Atharva Ankolekar and Yashasvi Jaiswal’s patience at the top helped India post 233/9 at the end of 50 overs. The Rajasthan Royals pick Jaiswal was dismissed on 62(82) by Tanveer Sangha and his innings included four boundaries and two maximums.

India will now take on the winners of the quarterfinal match between Afghanistan or Pakistan in the semi-finals.

    Incredible bowling effort by Akash Singh helps India wrap the Australia tail inside 44 overs, as the Aussies are bundled out on 159. Another convincing win for the defending champions as they head to the final four, where they will meet the winners of the match between Pakistan and Afghanistan.      

    20:50 (IST)28 Jan 2020
    What an over!

    Three wickets in three deliveries leave Australia in tatters, first it was Sam Fanning and then Connor Sully who is run-out while trying to sneak a single. The next delivery is followed by Todd Murphy's wicket as he is cleaned up by Akash Singh on a golden duck. AUS: 155/9 (41.5 overs)  

    20:44 (IST)28 Jan 2020
    Sam Fanning's resistance finally comes to an end!

    This is a huge wicket for India as Sam Fanning's resistance finally comes to an end. He departs after scoring 75 from 127 balls. It was a loose delivery going down the leg and Fanning tried to seek a boundary from it. He pulls it towards the fine-leg region but the ball hits his gloves and is collected brilliantly by Dhruv Jurel. AUS: 155/7 (41.3 overs) | need 79 runs in 51 balls 

    20:34 (IST)28 Jan 2020
    Ravi Bishnoi provides India with much-needed breakthrough!

    Ravi Bishnoi is delighted and so is Team India as the 81-run partnership between Sam Fanning and Liam Scott finally comes to an end. It was a wide delivery with very little spin and Scott goes for the late cut but ends up getting a faint edge, which is collected sharply by Dhruv Jurel behind the stumps. He departs for 35(71) as Australia need another 85 to win from 57 balls. AUS: 149/6

    19:54 (IST)28 Jan 2020
    Sam Fanning keeps Aussies in the contest!

    Quicker delivery by Atharva Ankolekar to Sam Fanning and he pushes it towards the cover region and rushes for a single. With this, the youngster also completes his first 50 of the U-19 World Cup. Australia would need another 50 from the left-handed batsman if they want to remain alive in the contest. AUS: 103/5 (32 overs) | need 131 more to win 

    19:14 (IST)28 Jan 2020
    Kartik Tyagi continues to wreak havoc!

    Kartik Tyagi is reintroduced in the attack and the plan works for India as he sends Patrick Rowe packing on 21 from 40 balls. It was a length delivery pitched around the off stump and Rowe tries to defend it, however, the ball takes a thick outside-edge and settles in Dhruv Jurel gloves. This was Kartik's fourth wicket of the game. AUS: 68/5 (20.2 overs) 

    19:05 (IST)28 Jan 2020
    50-run partnership!

    Sam Fanning and Patrick Rowe are really handling the job well in the middle as the pair add over 50 runs for the fifth-wicket. Fanning is batting on 29 from 74 balls, while his partner Rowe is on 21 from 38 deliveries as Australia reach 68/4 after 20 overs. They need another 166 to win in 30 overs.

    Sam Fanning and Patrick Rowe on the rescue act!

    Sam Fanning and Patrick Rowe try to stabilise the Australian innings after the early blows. The pair is watching the ball and are taking their time to settle, which is the need of the hour for the Aussies. Both are also fetching the odd boundaries, just to maintain the check on the asking rate and have so far added 26 from 51 balls for the fifth wicket. AUS: 43/4 (11 overs) | need 191 runs to win 

    17:53 (IST)28 Jan 2020
    Kartik Tyagi is on fire!

    Kartik Tyagi is all pumped up as he picks up his third wicket. This time the batsman is caught at the first slip, but one must admit that this shot was not required at all. A wide delivery by Tyagi and Oliver Davies tries to whip the ball on the off-side, however, but plays it way too outside of his body and edges it for a simple catch to Yashasvi Jaiswal. AUS: 17/4 (2.3 overs) 

    17:46 (IST)28 Jan 2020
    What a start for India!

    Australia have been crushed right at the start of their 234-run chase. They lose wickets on the first, fourth and fifth delivery in Kartik Tyagi's opening over. Slight confusion between the opening pair of Sam Fanning and Fraser-McGurk leads to the latter's dismissal, that too without facing a single delivery. The second man to go was Mackenzie Harvey, who was trapped LBW on 4. Tyagi then followed it up with a ripper, cleaning up Lachlan Hearne's stumps in the very next delivery. Australia are in deep trouble. AUS: 5/3 (1 over) 

    17:05 (IST)28 Jan 2020
