Cricket news - ICC Under-19 World Cup, 2018, Day 11 - Live blog

That's all from us today. Do join us tomorrow as Pakistan and South Africa clash in the Super League Quarterfinal 2, from where one team will join Australia as this year's semifinalists. Till then, ciao!

Windies and Sri Lanka join Canada and Zimbabwe as we now have the four semifinalists for the 9th place play-off. Also, earlier in the day, Australia dumped England in a low-scoring encounter to enter the semis of U19 World Cup 2018.

Young smashes a fifty off just 31 balls and then Royal hits the winning runs! Windies beat Ireland by four wickets to win the Player Quarterfinal 4, with ten balls to spare.

Cooper falls after a brief cameo and this match is getting more and more exciting. Young is still out there, hitting as freely as ever. His knock has indeed helped Windies bring down the required run-rate significantly. Here on, it's Windies' match to lose. 14 required off 20 balls, with four wickets in hand.

Kallicharan falls four short of his fifty but he's kept Windies in the hunt. Nyeem Young since then has taken matters into his own hands and Windies' strike-rate is seeing an upward curve. Five boundaries and a six already in his 20-ball 33. Windies now need 44 more in 36 balls.

MASSIVE WIN: Kenya fold for a mere 108 and Sri Lanka have scripted a massive 311-run victory in the Plater Quarterfinal 3. Hasitha Boyagoda was the star, hammering a tournament record score of 191 in just 152 deliveries. The bowlers did equally well and Buddhila was the best amongst them, returning figures of 4 for 27 from his ten overs.

Kenya go past the 100-run mark but not before losing their ninth wicket. Only a matter of time for Sri Lanka.

Windies, after a steady start, have lost two men in quick succession. They're also falling behind on run-rate. Required run-rate has shot past 6 now.

Hareen Buddhila helping Sri Lanka inch closer and closer to a massive win! He's picked up four wickets in his seven overs so far. Kenya are reeling at 76 for 8.

Kenya are losing wickets at regular intervals. 49 for 6 after 15 overs. Sri Lanka well on their way to the semis.

Yadram falls just after his fifty as Ireland get their first breakthrough.

Bhaskar Yadram's half-century has helped Windies off to a steady start in their chase of 279 against Ireland. But Kenya continue to falter. They're four-down after 12 overs with only 37 runs on the board.

The best bowling figures EVER at #U19CWC! What a spell @lloyd_pope24! ???? pic.twitter.com/iuvW3G2gqc

Lloyd Pope, Man of the match: "This performance ranks right amongst the top. We needed the belief to win the game. Never gave up on it. I've had some practice in the powerplay and I had backing from the captain today. I threw in some variations and saw how it worked out. Good work by Param too. A few good catches by Sangha too. The pitch was turning a bit, so that helped. Shane Warne had helped me out some pointers and those came in handy too."

BREAKTHROUGH: Sri Lanka have their first wicket! Nipun Malinga strikes to send back Aman Gandhi as Kenya lose their first man in a mammoth chase! In fact, make it two wickets! Rene Were becomes Malinga's second victim.

???? @lloyd_pope24 in his own words...

ALL OUT: England have been shot down for just 96 by - who else - Pope! Two wickets in the space of four balls in his final over and he's done it for his side. EIGHT wickets for the legspinner, who's helped Australia defend a lowly 127 successfully! Is this the match of this tournament thus far? I sure think so! 9.4-2-35-8! Lloyd Pope, remember the name!

Well, well! Pope's on fire with the ball. Sixth wicket for the legspinner and Australia are firmly in control of the game! Who would've thought England would struggle in a 128-run chase? Pope's figures at the end of his eight-over spell - 8-2-30-6! Meanwhile, in the plate quarterfinals, both Kenya and Windies have stearted their chase in a steady manner.

QUICK WICKETS: Back after the break and England have added only three more runs to their total before losing yet another wicket! Param Uppal strikes this time and Euan Woods walks back after making only 8 off the 20 balls he faced. England need another 46 to win but have only four wickets in hand to do it. They do have all the time in the world, only if the batsmen could show some... SEVENTH WICKET! What's worse than back to back to back wickets? A run out! Tom Scriven wanted the single that was never there and pays the price with his wicket. One would have hoped that the lunch break would have calmed things down, but they've hit the panic mode. England are now officially in deep, deep trouble. Having done so well with the ball themselves, they are letting a semis spot slip away so meekly! 46 more to get, England 82/7 after 19 overs.

Ireland too haven't done bad either. They finish with 278/8 from their 50 overs.The target for Windies will be 279 when the game resumes.

Sri Lanka, meanwhile, have come up with their best Under-19 World Cup performance by far - posting a mammoth 419/4 from their allotted overs. Much credit to Boyagoda, who hammered the best-ever U19 WC individual score of 191 but unfortunately couldn't convert it into a maiden double of the tournament. Nonetheless, Sri Lanka have done all they could with the bat, and some more. Over to bowlers after the innings break.

FIFER: And he gets his fifth! Gosh, what a turnaround with the ball for Australia. All credit to one guy - Lloyd Pope! England and Australia head into the lunch break with the former 79/5 in the chase of 128. All five wickets have been claimed by Pope, giving Australia an outside chance of a win despite the team's shambolic batting display earlier. This game can still go anywhere! But for now, its time for the players to have some lunch.

POPE GIVES AUSTRALIA HOPE: Banton reached his ffity eventually but loses his wicket soon after. And that's a stunning catch by Australian skipper! England are four-down now, with 71 runs on the board. This could get tricky for England should Australia manage a wicket or two more in the next few overs.

A standing ovation for Hasitha Boyagoda after he falls for 191 - the highest ever score in U19 ODI history! ???????????? #SLvKEN #U19CWC pic.twitter.com/2dt5xLR8ph

Uh oh! What an anti-climax! Boyagoda falls just nine short of registering the double-ton! Nevertheless, Sri Lanka are headed towards a very strong finish.

And another one! Pope has claimed his third victim in the game and England slip to 51 for 3 after their first 10 overs. Will Jacks falls for 1, while Banton is still stranded in his 40s.

POPE STRIKES: Two in two deliveries for Lloyd Pope and Australia have broken through. This gives Australia faint hope, but with the very little runs that their bowlers have to play with, England might not be in trouble yet. Double-wicket maiden - this over - has probably been only the second highlight for the Aussies, after skipper Sangha's fighting fifty. England 47/2 after eight overs.

Banton leads England's reply: The opener has hammed a brisk 41 off just 35 to help England off to a flying start. England are 47 for no loss after seven overs, in a chase of 128.

Tector falls for 69 as Windies have finally found a way past this stubborn partnership. Ireland 196/5 after 41 overs. Rock is three away from his fifty.

What an innings! Hasitha Boyagoda has passed 180 and has broken the record set by Jakob Bhula just last week for the highest score in U19 ODIs! Take a bow! ???? #SLvKEN #U19CWC pic.twitter.com/0zrv2CplJP

Jehan Daniel is trapped lbw for 37 off 24, but its Boyagoda who's hogging all the limelight. He's 14 away from his double ton and Sri Lanka still have another seven overs left in the game. Their score - 325/3!

Tom Banton and Liam Banks walk out to kick start England's chase of 128.

150 UP: Unless we see a spectacular collapse from here on, it is safe to assume that Boyagoda's magnificent 150 has batted the opponents out of the contest. The Sri Lankan opener gets to the landmark off the 126 delivery. What a stunning knock this has been... thoroughly dominating the Kenyan bowlers. 21 boundaries and two big sixes in it already! Sri Lanka are 259/2 after just 36 overs!

Ireland have recovered well from the early stutter, thanks to this 78-run stand between Neil Rock and Harry Tector. They've gone past the 150-run mark in the 32nd over with both the set batsman doing well to keep Windies at bay.

ALL OUT: Nobody from the Australian lower order chipped in and they've been shot down for just 127 - their lowest ever against England U19. Terrific bowling show from England, Bamber, Pennington and Will Jacks all picked three wickets apiece

TON UP: Century for Hasitha Boyagoda!

HALF CENTURY: Sangha brings up his fifty but Australia are all over the place.

Jeavor Royal strikes on successive deliveries and Ireland are now 76 for 4 suddenly, after 18 overs.

Third one for Bamber! He takes out Will Sutherland right at the stroke of the drinks break and Australia are in all sorts of trouble. 65 for 6, with only their captain Jason Sangha putting on some fight in the middle. Ireland, meanwhile, have lost Donegan to Bhaskar, slipping to 70 for 2 at the end of 15 overs.

And that's the end of Nathan McSweeny. Ethan Bamber takes his second wicket. McSweeny pokes at a short ball and the edge is safely pouched. Australia slip further.

Sri Lanka's flourishing opening partnership has been broken as Dhananjaya Lakshan walks back for 29 off 28 in just the next over after his partner, Boyagoda, brings up his half-century.

A wide brings up the 50 for Australia. Not a bad pace that they're scoring at - at five an over - but early wickets is sure to cost them.

ENGLAND ON TOP: Dillon Pennington is on fire! Third wicket for him as Australia slip to 28 for 4 after their first six overs. Uppal departs for a duck after Finlay Trenouth takes a stunner at second slip!

Ethan Bamber joins the party! Pennington has two to his credit early on, after Australia opted to bat, and now Bamber strikes to leave them at 27 for 3! Merlo is bowled on 4!

Meanwhile, in the other Plate fixture, Nyeem Young has taken a return catch off his own bowling to get Windies a breakthrough against Ireland. Jamie Grassi falls after scoring 11 off 27 deliveries.

Elsewhere, Sri Lankan openers have made a brisk start by putting on 56 in just seven overs. Hasitha Boyagoda is leading the charge with an unbeaten 36 off 27 that included a six and half a dozen boundaries.

EARLY BREAKTHROUGH FOR ENGLAND: Oh boy! So not the start Australia would have wanted! Jack Edwards falls early. Trapped in front by Dillon Pennington on 3, in the second over. Australian skipper Jason Sangha walks out early.

Pitch report for ENG v AUS game: "No breeze. Not going to be much from this surface. Looks pretty dry, doesn't mean there will be much spin. No surprise Australia are batting. You can chase anything on this pitch," says Rob Key.


Ireland elect to bat against Windies, in Lincoln.

Sri Lanka too will bat against Kenya, having won the toss.
