Potchefstroom - Mahmudul Hasan Joy hit a century as Bangladesh defeated New Zealand by six wickets Thursday to book a clash against holders India in the final of the Under-19 Cricket World Cup.

Mahmudul made 100 off 127 balls as Bangladesh knocked off New Zealand's total of 211-8 with almost six overs remaining to reach the final for the first time.

A unbeaten 75 from Beckham Wheeler-Greenall was the highlight of a scrappy New Zealand innings, with Shoriful Islam taking 3-45 and Shamim Hossain and Hasan Murad both picking up two wickets.

Bangladesh will play record four-time winners India for the title in Potchefstroom on Sunday. New Zealand will face Pakistan in the third-place play-off in Benoni on Saturday.
