U-19 World Cup 2022: England beat Afghanistan to clinch place in Final;

U-19 World Cup 2022: England kept their nerve to become the first team to reach the ICC Under-19 Men’s CWC final after edging a thriller with Afghanistan by 15 runs.

Spinner Rehan Ahmed became the hero for the Young Lions, taking three wickets in the penultimate over at crucial point when their opponents needed just 18 runs from the last 10 balls.

England will now face the winner of the other semi between Australia and India on Saturday in the final – a remarkable turnaround from the previous tournament just two years ago in South Africa when they finished ninth.

As for Afghanistan they will head to the Coolidge Cricket Ground for the third-place playoff.
