Townsville (Australia), August 19, 2012, Agencies:

He played patiently and maturely, combining with fellow West Australian Ashton Turner for a sixth wicket unbeaten stand of 72 runs to take his side to victory in the 45th over.

Australia will now meet South Africa in the first semifinal at Tony Ireland Stadium Tuesday.

Brief scores (Quarterfinals): Bangladesh (under-19): 171 all out in 43 overs (Soumya Sarcar 73; Joel Paris 2-38, Ashton Turner 2-22, Travis Head 3-30) lt to Australia (under-19): 172/5 in 45.5 overs (William Bosisto 71 n.o., Travis Head 44, Ashton Turner 27 n.o.; Taskin Ahmed 2-31, Abu Jayed 2-37).
