U-19 World Cup 2022: Qasim Akram makes history for Pakistan with century and five-wicket haul;

U-19 World Cup 2022: Pakistan U19 finished fifth in the ICC Men’s U19 World Cup 2022 courtesy a comprehensive 238-run win over Sri Lanka in the fifth position play-off match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua on Thursday.

Qasim followed up his scintillating century with a five-wicket haul as Sri Lanka were rolled over for a measly 127 in 34.2 overs in reply to Pakistan’s mammoth 365 for three total.

Qasim took all of the first five Sri Lankan wickets to reduce the Asian side to 41 for five in 10.2 overs. The pair of Vinuja Ranpul (53 not out, 58 balls, five fours, two sixes) and captain Dunith Wellalage (40) combined to make a partial recovery for their side as they took Sri Lanka to 105 for eight from the precarious situation of 55 for seven.

Despite their efforts, Sri Lanka failed to put a decent fight as they were bundled out with 94 balls of their 50 overs left unused.

Earlier, Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to field. Openers Muhammad Shehzad and Haseebullah provided Pakistan a 134-run start in 24.1 overs. Shehzad fell after contributing an attacking 73 (69 balls, seven fours, two sixes).
