India thrashed Pakistan by 203 runs in their ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup semi-final encounter at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Tuesday.
While Shubman Gill lifted India to a fighting total of 272/9 from the depths of 166/5, it was the Indian bowlers who sent Pakistani batsmen back to the pavilion as the team bundled out at a mere score of 69.
Ishan Porel bagged four wickets while Shiva Singh and Riyan Parag both picked two wickets each, sealing the fate of the Pakistani team.
India: 272 for 9 in 50 overs (Shubman Gill 102 not out; Muhammad Musa 4/67).
Pakistan: 69 all out in 29.3 overs (Rohail Nazir 18; Ishan Porel 4/17, Shiva Singh 2/20, Riyan Parag 2/6).
Twitter minced no words while launching a hundred jokes and others got the perfect opportunity to take the "revenge" for Indian senior team's loss against Pakistan in the final of last year's Champions Trophy.

And there were a lot of praises and facts.
