|Townsville (Australia), Aug.20 (ANI): India and New Zealand booked a semi-final clash against each other after registering thrilling wins in the ICC Uunder-19 Cricket World Cup Super League quarter-finals on Monday.
India clinched an enthralling one-wicket win against rivals Pakistan, while New Zealand snatched a win from the jaws of defeat over an in-form West Indies at Endeavour Park.
At the Tony Ireland Stadium, India and Pakistan, played out a typically tense match. India lost wickets at regular intervals in its chase of Pakistan's total of 136. In the end, India's last pair of Harmeet Singh and Sandeep Sharma held their nerves to help their team across the line with one wicket to spare.
New Zealand needed 18 off the last over for a win to overhaul West Indies' 237. New Zealand's Ish Sodhi hit 12 off the last three balls, with a boundary off the last delivery, to lead his side to a win by three wickets against West Indies.
India and New Zealand will now play in the second semi-final at Tony Ireland Stadium on August 23.
On Tuesday, Australia and South Africa will clash in the first semi-final, also at the Tony Ireland Stadium. Both Australia and South Africa have remained unbeaten thus far in the tournament. (ANI)
