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

Australia pulled off a clinical five-wicket victory over Bangladesh on Sunday to secure a spot in the semifinals of the ICC under-19 cricket World Cup.

Bangladesh, put into bat in overcast conditions at Endeavour Park here, could only manage 171 runs.

Captain Will Bosisto (71 not out, 134b, 7x4) was again outstanding for the young Australian side.

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).  

South Africa (under-19): 244 all out in 50 overs (Chad Bowes 46, TB de Bruyn 54, Murray Coetzee 67; Reece Topley 3-45, Craig Overton 2-43) bt England (under-19): 141 all out in 40.3 overs (Alex Davies 54, Ben Foakes 54; Lizaad Williams 2-23, Prenelan Subrayen 4-24).
