India Under-19 became the first team to qualify for the semi-final as the defending champions thumped Australia by 74 runs in the 1st quarter-final. India added 89 runs in the last 12 overs with only four wickets in hand to finish with a respectable total of 233/9. They took three wickets in the first over of Australian chase who eventually were bowled out for 159 only.

Zimbabwe were struggling at 141/7 in the play-off quarters against Canada but finished on with 271/7 by adding 130 runs in the last 15 overs. They registered a 95-run win by bundling out Canada for just 176. In another plate-league match, the Scotland team chased down the target of 250 in only 44.2 overs for the loss of 3 wickets. The UAE team was bowled out for 249 in 49 overs while batting first.

All the statistical highlights recorded from India, Scotland and Zimbabwe victories on Tuesday:

1 – Zimbabwe’s Emannuel Bawa scored an unbeaten 105 against Canada while batting at No.7 position. He is now the first player to score a century in the U19 CWC while batting at No.7 or a lower position.

Overall, Bawa is only the 2nd player in Youth ODI history to score a hundred while batting at No.7 or a lower position. New Zealand’s Christian Leopard scored 116 batting at No.7 against Pakistan during the tri-series hosted by UAE in 2016.

1 – Australia’s Liam Scott became the first concussion substitute in U19 CWC history as he replaced Corey Kelly who was concussed during the last over of the Indian innings. All the matches during the 2006 edition of U19 CWC witnessed replacement players as that event utilized the concept of the Super-Sub.

4 – India needed only four deliveries to pick the first three wickets of Australian innings; the fewest balls any team batted before losing their 3rd wicket in a Youth ODI inning. Sri Lanka is the other team to have lost their first three wickets in the very first over a Youth ODI inning. They were 5/3 by end of the 1st over of the 2008 Youth ODI against Pakistan in Colombo-SSC where left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir took all three wickets.

5-2 – India’s 74-run win against Australia was their 5th consecutive win in the U19 CWC over the Aussies; a streak that began in 2000. Australia emerged victorious in their first two meetings in 1988 and 1998 respectively. India, in this process, became the first team to defeat Australia on five instances in the history of U19 CWC.

9 – India now have made it to the semi-finals of the U19 CWC in nine editions; the joint-most by any team. Australia also qualified for the semis in nine U19 CWC editions. Pakistan currently stands next in the list as they made it to the semis in eight tournaments and are yet to play the quarterfinal in the ongoing edition.

10 – India extended their winning streak in the U19 CWCs to ten making them the first team to win as many matches in succession in the history of the tournament. They thus broke the record held by Australia with nine wins in a row between 2002 and 2004.

Stats: India Under-19s set new records by defeating Australia in the Quarter-Final

25 – Each of Scotland’s top five scored 25+ runs in the game against UAE. This is the first-ever instance of a team’s top five batsmen scoring 25+ runs in a U19 CWC chase. Six such instances have been recorded during the first innings of a U19 CWC match till date.

130* – The unbeaten 130-run partnership between Zimbabwe’s Emannuel Bawa and Sakhumuzi Chirawu for the 8th wicket against Canada is now the highest partnership in Youth ODI cricket for 8th wicket. They went past the 102* partnership by Netherlands’ pair of Ejaz Nawaz and F Nijman against Americas U19 team in the 2000 U19 CWC.

The Bawa-Chirawu stand is also the 2nd highest for 8th or a lower wicket in Youth ODI history behind the 136-run stand between West Indies pair of Nicholas Pooran and Jerome Jones for the 9th wicket against Australia in 2014.

200 – With the victory against Australia, the India Under-19 became the first team to win 200 Youth ODIs. They were also the first team to win 100 matches in Youth ODI cricket; a milestone which they completed in the 2008 U19 CWC by defeating West Indies.

250 – Scotland’s successful run-chase of 250 against Canada is the first-ever 250+ successful chase by an associate nation in the U19 CWC. The previous highest successful chase by an Associate team in the history of the tournament was 244 by Bangladesh against West Indies in the 1998 edition; before they were awarded the full-member status.
