POTCHEFSTROOM: Pakistan skipper Rohail Nazir won the toss and opted to bat against India in the high-voltage semi-final clash of the Under-19 World Cup on Tuesday.

"We're going to bat first because it's a semi-final game. We have to put a good score on the board and defend it. It's time to make a mark in the big game, especially for us experienced players in the team. I think this match is always a bigger one (against India), hopefully we have a good match today and play good cricket. Same team as the one that played Afghanistan," Nazir said after winning the toss.

Meanwhile, India skipper Priyam Garg said: "Very happy to bowl first. India-Pakistan matches are more hyped by the crowd than the players. No changes to the team."

India have remained unbeaten so far in tournament.

Palying XI: India: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Divyaansh Saxena, Tilak Verma, Priyam Garg (Captain), Dhruv Jurel (wk), Siddhesh Veer, Atharva Ankolekar, Ravi Bishnoi, Sushant Mishra, Kartik Tyagi, 1Akash Singh
