U-19 World Cup: India face B'desh in quarter-finals

Tauranga: India will face Bangladesh in the ICC U-19 World Cup quarter-finals after the neighbouring nation qualified for the Super League following England's massive 282-run win over Canada in a Group C match on Saturday.
While three-time champions India had qualified for the knockout stage after hammering Papua New Guinea by 10-wickets, Bangladesh's qualification from Group C depended on the result of the match between England and Canada.
England, champions in 1998, were virtually assured of topping the group before this match owing to their high net run-rate but they did not show any complacency against Canada, notching a huge 383-7 after being invited to bat first.
Centuries from Banks (120, 114b, 12x4, 1x6) and Will Jacks (102, 82b, 11x4), who added 186 runs for the second wicket in just over 30 overs, put them in a position of strength.
