Colombo:Anwar Ali Khan wrecked havoc with a five-wicket haul as Pakistan retained the ICC Under-19 World Cup with a 38-run victory over India in a low scoring final here today.

After being bundled out for 109 in 41.1 overs, Pakistan relied on pacemen Anwar Ali Khan (5/35) and Akhtar Ayub (3/9) to clinch a remarkable victory at the R Premadasa Stadium.

The Indians had no answer to the pace and prodigious movement generated by the opposition bowlers to fold up for a paltry 71 in just 18.5 overs.

Piyush Chawla, who was India's bowling hero with 4/8, was also the highest scorer with an unbeaten 25 as wickets kept tumbling at the other end.
