In-form openers Sami Aslam and Imam-ul-Haq continued to pile up the runs to help Pakistan Under-19s crush Sri Lanka Under-19s in the quarter-finals in Sharjah.

The pair put on 177, the second-highest partnership in the tournament, to set the base for a total which proved well out of Sri Lanka's reach.

Both Imam and Aslam preferred to bide their time, but ended their innings with strike-rates in the late 70s. No. 3 Kamram Ghulam hammered 52 off 44 balls to push Pakistan to 279. Imam's 82 made him the tournament's highest run-getter, and captain Aslam's 95 put him third on the charts.
