U-19 WC: England trounce Namibia, to play Pak for 5-6 position playoff

Fatullah: England demolished Namibia by 203 runs on Wednesday to set up a clash with Pakistan for the fifth/sixth position play-off in the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup.

England, which lost to Sri Lanka in the quarter-finals, piled up 286 for nine after being sent in to bat in a match reduced to 48 overs a side due to murky weather.

Jack Burnham hit 109, his third century in the tournament, to become the leading run-getter in this edition with 418 runs. Tom Moores made 85.

Namibia, which had ousted defending champion South Africa at the group stage before losing to India in the quarter-finals, was shot out for 83 runs in just 25.2 overs.

Mason Crane grabbed three wickets for as many runs in 3.2 overs and Dan Lawrence took two for seven in two overs. England will face Pakistan in Fatullah on Friday in the fifth place play-off.

Meanwhile, Ireland thumped Scotland by 95 runs in the 13th/14th position play-off in Cox s Bazar.

William McClintock top-scored with 69 and Lorcan Tucker made 59 as Ireland scored 235 for seven after being asked to take first strike.

Scotland folded up for 140 in reply with Harry Tector claiming four wickets for 28 runs and Fiachra Tucker taking three for 29.
