Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed said pace-bowling all-rounder Anwar Ali was just too good in the Under-19 World Cup final against India in 2006.
Anwar unleashed a devastating spell that saw Pakistan defend a meagre total of 109 in incredible fashion.
He finished with figures of 5-35 off nine overs as India were bowled out for 71.
