England's dream of reaching their first ICC Under-19 World Cup final since 1998 ended with a dramatic three-wicket semi-final defeat by Pakistan in Dubai.

After winning the toss, England fought back from 1 for 2 to post 204 for 7 thanks to captain Will Rhodes's 76 from 79 balls.

Off-spinner Rob Sayer and 16-year-old Yorkshire seamer Matthew Fisher reduced Pakistan to 142 for 7 in the 37th over.

But Zafar Gohar and Amad Butt's eighth-wicket stand of 63 from 74 balls saw Pakistan home with five balls to spare.
