Looks like it's India's turn to terrorise NZ. The little master just hit 4 to complete yet another ton.

India: 182/0 after 30 overs.

Virtually over. 353/5 v 48/3

Crushing total by India. Looks like the match is all theirs. Wonderful innings by Tendu & Sehwag.

Ind 353/5, 50 ov (Tendu 102 off 91, Sehwag 130 off 134)

Irfan Pathan receives the Man of the Match award after his 9-16 including a hat-trick against Bangladesh, Asian Under-19s Tournament, Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, Nov 4, 2003


Irfan Pathan Jnr - his namesake is also a left-arm seamer for Baroda - is India’s youngest pace-bowling hope. At 18, he has already established himself as part of arguably the most incisive pace trio in the country, alongside Zaheer Khan and Rakesh Patel; served consistently as spearhead of the national under-19 team; and finds himself regularly selected for the India A team. Tall, and well filled out for his age, Irfan does most of his work off the seam at a useful pace off a side-on action, and his left-handedness marks him out a natural danger to the right-hander. Like Zaheer, one of his two idols – Wasim Akram, naturally, is the other – Irfan has refined his raw ability at the Dennis Lillee-assisted MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai. In another two years, this boy could be a star. Rahul Bhattacharya

They have such a balanced team...one of the best batting line up and also getting pacers like khan, Patel and the new inclusion Pathan...

I wish we also can send Masri again to MRF and get more tall, fit and strong pacers from the country to send them to MRF...is India helping us or they just have a quota for the training of our pacers?

Good stuff. After Bangladesh, my support goes to India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Always good to see these countries win.
