"I'll take that one": Tom Straker after surpassing Kagiso Rabada's spell in U-19 WC

Benoni [South Africa] : Australia seamer Tom Straker expressed his thoughts as he surpassed ace South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada's best bowling figures in the Under-19 Cricket World Cup final/semi-final (6/25) in the second semi-final against Pakistan on Thursday.

Straker grabbed six wickets in his spell of 9.5 overs where he conceded just 24 runs and bowled one maiden over as well. The right-arm speedster bagged the wickets of Shamyl Hussain, Azan Awais, Pakistan U-19 skipper Saad Baig, Ubaid Shah, Mohammad Zeeshan, and Ali Raza.

The 18-year-old stated that after his dismissal the atmosphere was very intense in the dressing room. He further said that the bowlers did well to bowl out the opposition under 180.

"We got it closer than we would have wanted. After I got out, no one was moving, everyone was sitting on their seats and it was pretty intense out there. Pretty proud, especially those last two wickets, I could finish it off early. Credit to us the bowlers to bowl them out for under 180, it was a pretty good effort today. I didn't know that, I'll take that one. Probably not, we had pretty good confidence throughout the whole tournament and leading up to it. So, pretty similar," Straker asserted after the match.
