India colts win first Pak ODI

September 19, 2006 22:13 IST

The Indian Under-19 team trounced their Pakistan counterparts by 82 runs in the first one-dayer at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore Tuesday to maintain their amazing run on the tour.

The Indians, who had won the preceding two-match 'Test' series by huge margins, scored 250 in the allotted 50 overs before skittling out Pakistan for 168 in 39.4 overs.

Skipper Piyush Chawla took 3 for 38 and pacer Ishant Sharma 3 for 31 in India's commendable win.

The home side made nine changes to their squad for the one-day series but it did not help their cause.

Earlier, Uday Kaul scored 67 and Sanjeev Sharma 65 to give the Indians a fighting total.

After the loss of two early wickets, the left-handed Kaul batted confidently, hitting seven fours in his 90-ball knock while Sanjeev Sharma hit two fours and three sixes from 75 balls.

Chawla, a centurion in the last Test, contributed 43 from 25 balls and Ravindra Jadeja made 32 to shore up the total.

For Pakistan, Mohd. Naved and Mohd. Ibrahim took two wickets apiece.

The batting let the hosts down once again with only opener Jamal Anwar (30) and Fazal Subhan (33) batting with assurance to put on 71 runs after two wickets fell to Sharma for just nine runs.
