India'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 in the quarterfinals where the India U-19 team require 155 runs to make it into the semifinals. 

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.
