Namibia Innings:

Rishabh Pant's ton, fifties from Sarfaraz and Jaffer and thereafter a brilliant bowling display helped India U-19 (349/6) sink Namibia (152) and qualify for the semis of the U-19 World Cup.

Overs 38: 150 up for Namibia. But just one wicket remaining for India to win the match and qualify for the semi-final. Namibia have crumpled under pressure.

Overs 36: Out! Superb bowling from Anmolpreet, he grabs his 3rd as Namibia lose Linde for 25. Chasing 350, Namibia 148/9. Brilliant all-round display from India U-19 team.

Overs 30: Out! Namibia are collapsing here. They have lost their 8th wicket as Anmolpreet strikes again! Brilliant caught and bowled to dismiss Lingen for 9. Namibia 128/8

Overs 27.4: Out! Anmolpreet Singh strikes this time. Namibia are in real trouble. They have lost Francois Rautenbach (8), caught by Mayank Dagar! Namibia 119 for 7

Overs 20.4: Out! It's Dagar again! He takes his 2nd, dismisses Van Wyk for 1. Chasing 350, Namibia 94/4 in 20.4 overs. This will surely dent Namibia's chances in the match.

Overs 19: Out! Mayank Dagar strikes this time, gets rid of Louwrens for 5. Chasing 350, Namibia 93/3 in 19 overs. Quick wickets have hurt Namibia's chances. Their batsmen are losing hold on the match maybe because of the pressure.

Overs 16: Out! Bowled! Washington Sundar gets rid of Eaton for 22. Chasing 350, Namibia 81/2 in 16 overs vs India. The change has done the trick for India. Eaton chose a wrong shot and paid the price. The ball got an inside edge and hit the stumps.

Overs 9.5: Out! Bowled! Rahul Batham strikes for India U-19 as Namibia lose Davin for 33. Namibia 60/1 in 9.5 overs

Meanwhile, Sarfaraz Khan is down on the ground with pain. He is struggling. However, he is back on his feet.

Overs 10: Fifty up for Namibia. So far they have played well with Davin being the aggressor. Eaton has been on a supportive role.

Overs 5: Khalil Ahmed and Avesh Khan have given India a good start with the ball. Both of them have shared the new ball well, giving the Namibian batsmen a tough time. Namibia 22/0 in 5 overs

Overs 3: Namibia have started cautiously in their chase of 350. Eaton and Davin are trying to negotiate the new ball in a careful way. Namibia 10/0.

A good complete batting performance from the India U-19 team. Namibia have to come out with something special if they are to chase down the Indian total. Brilliant ton from Rishabh Pant, fifties from Sarfaraz and Jaffer, and some useful contribution from Anmolpreet and Lomror enable India U-19 to put up a massive target of 250 for Namibia.

Overs 50: Rishabh Pant (111), Sarfaraz Khan (76) power India U-19 to 349/6 against Namibia.

Overs 47.4: Armaan Jaffer goes for 64. India U-19 lose their 5th wicket - 318/4 in 47.4 overs vs Namibia.

Overs 44: Out! India U-19 lose their 4th wicket as Sarfaraz departs for 76. His wicket might slow down the run rate. But nevertheless, a top knock from the Mumbai batsman. IND U19 281/4

Overs 42: Sarfarz Khan and Armaan Jaffer are leading the charge against Namibia. Sarfaraz, who is in red hot form is nearing his hundred while Jaffer is close to his fifty. The duo have put India on course for a huge total.

Overs 39: FIFTY comes up for in-form Sarfaraz Khan! IND U19 237/3 in 39 overs vs Namibia.

Overs 29: OUT! Pant's fabulous innings comes to an end! Pant goes for 111. IND U19 185/3 in 29 overs vs Namibia.

9.30: India U-19 have crossed the 50-run mark after losing captain Ishan Kishan early. Rishabh Pant and Anmolpreet Singh have negotiated the new ball well and are cruising at the moment.

OUT! Big blow to India! Captain Ishan Kishan is gone! Fritz Coetzee strikes in his second over to remove Ishan Kishan for 6. Brilliant caught and bowled! Kishan gave a straight catch back to Coetzee.. couldn't believe it. India 18 for 1 in 3 overs

Toss: India have won the toss and have opted to bat

Brief Preview: India will aim to build on their dominant showing in the pool stages when they take on an unpredictable Namibian unit in the quarterfinals of the ICC U -19 World Cup on Saturday.

India went about their job in clinical fashion beating Ireland, New Zealand and Nepal by big margins in Group D.

However, they can't afford to take their quarter-final opponents likely as Namibia head into the knock-out phase after showing the exit door to defending champions South Africa.

In other matches, the African nation got the better of Scotland before losing their final league game against Bangladesh to finish second in Group A behind the hosts.
