Riding on an unbeaten 155-run opening stand, India thrashed Zimbabwe by 10-wickets to top Group-B in the ongoing U-19 World Cup 2018. India who have already qualified for the quarter-finals, are unbeaten so far in the event.  

The U-19 Team India have defeated Zimbabwe by 10 wickets to enter the semi-finals of the ICC U-19 World Cup. It was openers Harvik Desai and Shubhman Gill who took on the responsibility and finished the job with their 149 runs partnership. 

The two openers didn't break a sweat on a slow track as Shubman hammered the Zimbabwe bowlers for 13 fours and one six in an unbeaten 155-run partnership with Harvik Desai.

The Men in Blue bundled out the Zimbabwe batsmen for 154 runs and the Rahul Dravid coached U-19 team faced no difficulty in chasing the meagre score on the board. 

The Prithvi Shaw led Team India have performed exquisitely well so far in the tournament as all the eyes are on the coveted prize as the Men in Blue aim to bring the trophy back home. 

Earlier it wasIndia's U-19 team have yet impressed once again and this time with the ball as the bowlers bundled out Zimbabwe for 154 in the quarterfinals of the ICC U-19 World Cup in New Zealand. 

The Prithvi Shaw led team wrecked the Zimbabwe batting line-up where the India U-19 team required 155 to win the match. 

Earlier, It was Anukul Sudhakar Roy who collected four wickets in the first innings of the quarterfinals, bowling out the big guns in the Zimbabwe line-up where his figures read an impressive 4/20. Zimbabwe's Milton Shumba scored the highest with his 36 runs off 59 balls.

Abhishek Sharma and Arshdeep Singh collected two wickets each in the quarterfinals. It's not the first time that Anukul Roy stars with a four-for as he accomplished this feat in the match against Papua New Guinea where he gathered five-wickets. 

The Zimbabwe batsmen never got going on a slow track as they failed to rotate strike on a constant basis and once spin was introduced, the batsmen fell like a pack of card. 

With an impressive batting line-up, the Rahul Dravid coached U-19 team would aim to finish off the game as quick as possible.
