Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan congratulated the national U-19 team for their comprehensive win against Pakistan making it to their seventh junior World Cup final. India beat Pakistan by 10 wickets in the first semi-final with opener Yashasvi Jaiswal scoring a hundred. They will now meet the winners of the second semi-final between Bangladesh and New Zealand. Yashasvi Jaiswal batted like a man among boys while Kartik Tyagi reminded Pakistan of Waqar Younis' toe-crushing yorkers as defending champions India walloped their arch-rivals by 10 wickets to enter their seventh ICC U-19 World Cup final.

"It's a dream come true for me. To be able to do this for my country is a great feeling. To score a hundred against Pakistan in a World Cup semi-final is something I can't put into words," Jaiswal, who hit eight fours and four sixes, said after winning the 'Player of the Match' award.
India thus maintained their supremacy over Pakistan at the age-group and senior level in ICC tournaments -- both men and women.
