Starter Harnoor Singh’s unbeaten 100 negated Cooper Connolly’s 117 as India defeated Australia by nine wickets in a warm-up game before the U-19 World Cup in Providence, Guyana. Australia recorded 268 runs before completing 49.2 overs, with 18-year-old Captain Connolly making 117 with 18 limits.

Harnoor led the charge of India with his century that was 16 fours. He was well supported by Shaik Rasheed, who scored 72.

Both players retired injured, but captain Yash Dull (50 not out) led the team over the goal line with 15 balls to spare Tuesday at Providence Stadium here.

The tournament proper will begin on Friday and India will open its campaign against South Africa on Saturday.

In other matches, Bangladesh, England and Pakistan also recorded impressive victories.

Bangladesh posted a decent total of 277 after a rocky start when starter Iftakher Hossain slipped into third and started for just 1.

But Aich Mollah got his team back on track, scoring 82 of 82 shipments with three sixes remaining.

Wicketkeeper Mohammed Fahim also contributed a timely 33, before captain Rakibul Hasan went after the Zimbabwe attack, scoring 36 before running out.

Tailender Ripon Mondol then hit a quick 39 of 26 balls to bring the 2020 champions to their final total.

Zimbabwe’s response did not start on firm ground when starter Panashe Taruvinga searched for a duck.

The next man in Steven Saul launched a counterattack, scoring 39 of 45 deliveries, but once he got past Fahim, his team faced an uphill task. They were ultimately eliminated by 110 runs.

England produced a mid-order rally to beat the United Arab Emirates in a thrilling two-course finish.

Batting first, the UAE posted a credible 191-9 in their innings, even with losing starters Kai Smith by one duck and Shival Bawa by just eight runs.

However, Dhruv Parashar and Captain Alishan Sharafu achieved a combined 62 to keep the Emiratis in the competition. Josh Boyden was the choice of England bowlers at 5-42.

But Sharafu’s team refused to leave quietly, with the latter Adihya Shetty and Jash Giyanani scoring 21 and 15 respectively. Set 192 to win, England’s response got off to a bad start when George Thomas was thrown by Sharafu with the first ball of the inning.

Lancashire rookie George Bell took center stage to get England back on track. Coming to the fold with his team at 23-3, Bell produced a wonderful 75 not out of 120 balls.

Assisted by James Sales (29) and Tom Aspinwall (33), the 19-year-old helped his team secure a narrow victory over two wickets.

Pakistan put on an impressive display against Canada. Verde’s men cut them to 31-4.

Ethan Gibson put up some resistance with a stubborn 55, but Mihir Patel’s team was ultimately eliminated by 164.

Pakistan’s response started badly when Haseebullah started for just 3, but his opening partner, Mohammad Shehzad, scored 67.

He was joined in the fold by Abdul Faseeh, who hit 72 undefeated, to help his team to an eight-wicket victory.
