A record-breaking eight-wicket spell from leg-spinner Lloyd Pope helped Australia enter the ICC U-19 World Cup semi-final here today.

Pope took eight for 35 against England to set a new benchmark at the youth tournament, which is currently under way in New Zealand.

The 18-year-old came into the attack with England cruising at 47 without loss as they chased Australia's modest total of 127.

But, Pope soaked up the pressure and bamboozled England's batsmen to have them all out for 96.
