Pakistan kick off U19 World Cup campaign with impressive win over Canada
Pakistan on Wednesday registered an impressive eight-wicket win over Canada in warm-up fixtures of the 2022 ICC U19 Cricket World Cup.
The Boys in Green will now face the Group C opener against Papua New Guinea (PNG) on Saturday.
Pakistan won the toss and elected to bowl first. They managed to restrict Canada to 164 by removing their key players including Ethan Gibson and Mihir Patel.
While chasing the target, Pakistan’s response was not impressive as Haseebullah departed for just 3. However, his opening partner Mohammad Shehzad smashed 67.
