Live Result Australia vs Pakistan U19 World Cup 2024, AUS vs PAK: The stage is set for an exciting semi-final clash at the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2024 when unbeaten Australia take on Pakistan in Benoni.

Australia, led by captain Hugh Wiebgen, won the toss and decided to bat first. They made three changes to their lineup, adding Tom Campbell, Ryan Hicks and Tom Straker. Pakistan, led by captain and goalkeeper Saad Baig, will hope to achieve this but will look to limit Australia’s total and chase a competitive target.
PAK CONTRACT AUS U19
This match promises to be tense. While defending champions India have already sealed their place in the final, Australia and Pakistan are hungry for victory. Both teams have shown incredible talent and resilience throughout the tournament, making it difficult to predict.
Two-time champion Pakistan is determined to win its third title. Their bowling attack, led by Ubaid Shah (second in the list of wicket takers), will be crucial in containing the Australian batsmen. However, they need their captain Saad Baig to find his scoring touch after a relatively quiet tournament with the bat.
Australia, on the other hand, have a balanced team with impressive firepower in both batting and bowling. Opening batsmen Hugh Wiebgen and Harry Dixon have been in excellent form and their performances will be crucial in building a solid foundation. Their bowling attack, with a mixture of pace and spin, aims to exploit any weaknesses in Pakistan’s line-up.
This is not the first time that these two cricket legends have come face to face in the semi-finals of the U19 World Cup. In 2006, future stars like Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja were part of the action. Six years later, in 2012, Cameron Bancroft, Travis Head, Ashton Turner and Hanuma Vihari faced each other. Will Sunday’s final be another historic meeting between the two countries?
With so much at stake and a rich history of exciting Under-19 encounters between these teams, the semi-finals will be a spectacle not to be missed. Stay tuned to us for live updates and commentary as Australia and Pakistan fight for their place in the world. U19 World Cup Final!
