Australia are chasing the 180-run target against Pakistan.

Australia vs Pakistan, highlights U19 World Cup 2024, AUS vs PAK: Staging a comeback for Pakistan in the low-scoring contest, 15-year-old Ali Raza bowled a double-wicket maiden to turn the tie on its head. However, Raza's death-over heroics went in vain as Raf MacMilllan hit the winning runs in the 50th over to seal Australia's one-wicket win over Pakistan. Australia will meet defending champions India in the final on Sunday....Read More

Tom Straker led the Australian bowling charge with a six-wicket haul to bowl Pakistan out for 179 in 48.5 overs. Azan Awais kept Pakistan breathing with a gritty half-century, but the menacing Straker broke through to really dent the opposition's chances. At 5 down for 79, Pakistan needed a special partnership and it came from a fifty-plus stand between Awais and Arafat Minhas. That is before the partnership was broken and Pakistan went 6 down with less than 10 overs to go. All hopes were then pinned on Minhas, but after completing a half-century, the left-hander perished to drill the final nail in the coffin for Pakistan. Straker, who had picked three wickets by then, returned for his final over, wrapped up the Pakistan innings inside 50 overs with 7 balls remaining and finished with 6/24.

Earlier Callum Vidler, Straker and Raf MacMillan all struck to dismiss the top in the Pakistan line-up and have taken the bull by its horns. The Powerplay belonged to Australia as Straker took out Shamyl Hussain for 14 followed by Vidler removing Shahzaib Khan, who really struggled during his 30-ball stay for four runs. Any hopes of a comeback were further dented by Straker, who picked up his second wicket in the form of the Pakistan captain Saad Baig. Spin was introduced in the form of Raf MacMillan and the off-spinner took just two overs to get himself going. Pakistan lost half their side with Beardman cleaning up Haroon Ahmad. This was after Australia won the toss and captain Hugh Weibgen had no hesitation in batting first as he informed of the three changes made to his Playing XI. His counterpart Baig wanted to bat first.

Like all the previous editions, this one has been a fascinating and one heck of a tournament. Heavyweights India, the defending champions were the outright favourites to make it to the final and they did so almost without breaking a sweat. We say almost because they were tested by South Africa like no other team before and at one point, seemed to be kissing their campaign goodbye before Sachin Dhas and captain Uday Saharan stitched a Mohammad Kaif-Yuvraj Singh circa 2002 kind of a partnership. But as good as India were, Australia are equally challenging when it comes to ICC finals. India and Australia are yet to register an 'L' against their name, but have been occasionally pushed by oppositions. Having said that, they are a well-rounded squad, with an impressive stock of pacers, spinners and batters.

Here are a few pointers surrounding the Australia vs Pakistan U19 World Cup 2024 semifinal:

-Raf MacMilllan earned a boundary in the final over to seal Australia's one-wicket win over Pakistan.

-Ali Raza bowled a double-wicket maiden to stage Pakistan's comeback.

- He made three changes with Tom Campbell, Ryan Hicks and Tom Straker coming in.

- Pakistan were dented when the in-form Azan Awais was dismissed for 52 off 91 balls and Arafat Minhas followed soon.

- The winner of today's contest will face India in the final on Sunday.

Australia vs Pakistan Live Score U19 World Cup 2024, AUS vs PAK: Hear from Tom Straker, the man of the moment who doesn't like left-handers

Australia vs Pakistan Live Score U19 World Cup 2024, AUS vs PAK: "Something we talked about before the game - just keeping consistent length, not getting too full, see if it swings early and then once it doesn't, just let the pitch do the talking. I don't like left-handers, I'd rather right-handers but just got lucky today. Our bowling attack, throughout the tournament, has bowled a fair bit of short balls. With the pitch being bouncy today, that was one of our plans going into the game."

Australia vs Pakistan Live Score U19 World Cup 2024, AUS vs PAK: Australia's innings

Australia vs Pakistan Live Score U19 World Cup 2024, AUS vs PAK: Alright then! The first half of the game is done and dusted and you can't help but feel that it's Australia that will be going into the second half as the happier of the two sides. They were on top from the first ball and remained there till the last delivery was bowled. Pakistan… well, they never could get going. After losing their top 4 for just over 50 and then a fifth 30 runs later, Awais Shah and Arafat Mihas tried but they could only do so much. Kudos to the youngsters for keeping Pakistan's fight alive with a half-century but Australia, and of course, Tom Straker had other plans. Staring off with two wickets up front, Straker came back to wipe out the tail and grab a mighty impressive six-wicket-haul

Australia on top but Pakistan have not conceded much in this tournament either. A fascinating second innings awaits. Stay tuned. There's plenty left to come.

Australia vs Pakistan Live Score U19 World Cup 2024, AUS vs PAK: FOUR! Zeeshaaannnn…

Australia vs Pakistan Live Score U19 World Cup 2024, AUS vs PAK: Ah, glorious! He is a No. 8 batter but boy, that would have made any top order hitter proud. Zeeshan clears his front leg and sends the ball sailing over the infield once bounce into the boundary. Nice, clean hit. Words exchanged between him and Beardman.

The final 12 deliveries of the Pakistan innings left. They are still 25 short of 200. Yes, they are down to their last 2 wickets but surely, they must target that 200. Doesn't mean you play rash shots and hurt the chances of whatever little more Pakistan can get from this point.

Pakistan 178/8 in 48 overs against Australia
