Pakistan opener Sami Aslam scored his second hundred of the series to put his team to 282 while Indian captain Unmukt Chand did the same for his side but unfortunately both the centuries went in vain.

Pakistan did very well to defend the title but India were in a relative control to chase down by needing 37 runs is last 6 overs. While Chand was still around though and almost carried on with his bat, but his dismissal off the fourth ball of the final over – caught on the cover boundary off seamer Ehsan Adil – left India needing five off two deliveries. No. 8 Rush Kalaria pierced the off side for four, to bring the scores level. The final delivery, though, he could only chip gently to mid-off and that ends the game by both the teams sharing the title.

Brief Scores: Pakistan U-19: 282 for 9 (Sami Aslam 134, Umar Waheed 48; Rush Kalaria 5 for 37) tied with India U-19: 282 for 8 (Unmukt Chand 121, B Aparajith 90; Mohammad Nawaz 3 for 45, Ehsan Adil 3 for 68).
