ICC U19 World Cup 2024: Players with Most Runs

If you thought the first semifinal was tight, this one pushed the players to their limits. In a knockout match between two quality teams, the pressure is on both sides. This very easily might have gone anyway. Excellent bowling display from either side and below-par batting performance is what they both would agree on.

Batting first, Pakistan got a slow start and Tom Straker went through the top wickets. The highest run scorer for Pakistan in tournament Shahzaib Khan wasn’t able to connent bat to the ball. Azan Awais and Arafat Minhas went past individual 50s and eight pakistani batters were out for a single digit score. That left Pakistan a just 179 runs in the end of their innings.

All would have thought it is an easy chase for Australia but not against Pakistan. Australia aslo got a sluggish start and lost wickets in quick successions. Opener Harry Dixon struck 50 and Oliver Peake scored important 49 runs in the middle when Australia were struggling. Australia needed 16 runs when they were 9 down. Raf MacMilllan played a supreb knock and took the team home. Australia won the game by 1 wicket.

You won’t see Oliver Peake’s 49 off 75 impressive when you just look at the numbers but it was a significant knock that lead his team close to victory. Tom Straker was the star with the ball for them, returning with figures of 6/24.

In terms of batting statistics, he is followed by Indian batsman Musheer Khan. Khan is now the second-highest run scorer in the competition after six games with 338 runs scored.

Third place goes to Sachin Dhas. The fact that Indian hitters hold the top three spots for most runs scored is pretty intriguing and another evidence of their domination in the competition.
