India has been declared as the winner of ‘Under-19 Asia Cup’. India has beat out Sri Lanka by 144 runs in the final match. This is the country’s sixth award in seven versions of the U-19 continental contest, after remaining unsuccessful to win it in the year 2017 when Afghanistan bagged the final trophy.
Both India and Sri Lanka both entered the final as undefeated, however, it was India who bagged the final title.
It was a solid presentation by the Indian player's boys as they took up batting first and posted an exciting 304/3 in the 50 overs.
Yashasvi Jaiswal furnished the flawless stage by pocketing 85 off 113 balls, however, got removed afore getting to the hundred run landmark in the concluding match.
PrabhSimran Singh and Ayush Badoni stole the show afterward with rapid fifties to put together 110 runs from just 55 balls. India hit 113 runs in the final 10 overs, with 79making their way during the last five.
Chasing 305, it was always going to be a tough ask for the Islanders after they lost early wickets.
Captain Pawan Shah, who was not in the final match because of an injury, showed his pleasure on his team’s presentation.
While addressing the post-match staging ceremonial, he stated, “Yes, unfortunately, I missed out due to an injury but I am happy because my team won. It was a very well organised tournament by ACC and I am glad we emerged as victorious.”
Harsh Tyagi who was announced as the ‘Man of the Match’ stated, “It was quite helpful for the spinners here. I stuck to the basics and I was planning with the captain. It came out to be good. The last match was good for the spinners. The coaches helped us and the video analysts also helped us a lot. It is always a great opportunity to play here. I would like to thank the ACC for organising this tournament.”
Great going boys and many congratulations to the entire team!
