In a huge victory India beats Pakistan by 10 wickets and enters into the seventh ICC U-19 World Cup final on Tuesday.
Jaiswal scored India’s first ton in the tournament and the defending champions moved to the finals for the third successive time.
As many as eight batsmen failed to reach double figures as Pakistan were dismissed for 172 in 43.1 overs.
Left-handed opener Jaiswal showed his class with an unbeaten knock of 105 off 113 balls, with an equally graceful Divyansh Saxena (59 not out off 99 balls) supporting him in an easy chase completed in only 35.2 overs.
India has now won five of their 10 matches against Pakistan across Under-19 World Cup editions.
“It’s a dream come true for me. To be able to do this for my country is a great feeling. To score a hundred against Pakistan in a World Cup semi-final is something I can’t put into words,” Jaiswal, who hit eight fours and four sixes, said after winning the ‘Player of the Match’ award.
