Pakistan U19 pacer Mohammad Zeeshan was at his exceptional best with the ball in the ongoing game against India in the U19 Asia Cup 2023. The game between the two arch-rivals is taking place at the ICC Academy Ground in Dubai.
Mohammad Zeeshan troubled Indian batters with his exceptional bowling in the first innings. He bowled impeccable lines and lengths and put his team in the dominating position in the high-pressure game between two arch-rivals.
Mohammad Zeeshan caught the attention of many when he removed India’s batter, Ruda Patel. The lanky pacer bowled a sensational delivery to which the Indian batter tried to punch through the covers. He was beaten and the ball caught the outside side that was safely pouched by the keeper behind the stumps.
As Mohammad Zeeshan removed Rudra Patel, he was elated with it. He gave an aggressive send-off to the Indian batter. The fast bowler went close to the batter and yelled loudly in joy in front of the Indian batter. The emotions surely got the better of him as he picked the wicket.

Rudra Patel didn’t have a great outing with the bat as he struggled for most part of his innings. The batter managed just 1 runs off 11 balls. His wicket left India tottering at 46/2. However, after that, some crucial partnerships took India to a decent total.
India U19 post a total of 259 runs on board; Mohammad Zeeshan shines with ball
India were asked to bat first and they had a decent start with the bat. Adarsh Singh (62) and Arshin Kulkarni (24) added 39 runs for the opening partnership but after that few wickets fell putting them on the back foot. Pakistan kept chipping in with wickets at regular intervals and put India under pressure.
Uday Saharan (60) and Sachin Dhas (58) then slammed magnificent half-centuries that brought India back into the game. Thanks to their vital fifties, the Boys in Blue posted a total of 259 runs on the board. For Pakistan, Mohammad Zeeshan was the pick of the bowlers as he bagged four wickets and returned with figures of 4/46. Apart from him, Amir Hassan and Ubaid Shah picked two wickets each.
