KARACHI: Mansoor Ali's unbeaten half-century and a three-wicket haul by Shaheen Afridi helped Pakistan drub Singapore by nine wickets in their opening match of the U19 Asia Cup on Thursday in Galle.

Pakistan bowled out their counterparts for just 78 in 24.1 overs, with Afridi starring with figures of 3-27. He was well-supported by the other bowlers though, with Muhammad Hasnain also claiming a couple of wickets as the youngsters shared the wickets amongst themselves.
