In the ICC U-19 World Cup 2020 Cup 2020 final, India’s batting wilted under pressure as a superb Bangladesh bowling attack shot the defending champions out for a paltry 177 in 47.2 overs at JB Marks Oval, Potchefstroom today.
Yasashvi Jaiswal (88 off 121 balls) was once again a standout performer but not for once did he look like dominating the Bangladesh bowling unit whose new ball bowlers Shoriful Islam (2/31 in 10 overs) and Tanzim Hasan Shakib (2/28 in 8.2 overs) literally stifled the Indians for runs.
The third seamer Avishek Das (3/40 in 9 overs) was the most successful bowler in terms of figures but it was Shoriful’s first spell with channelized aggression that put the Indians on the back-foot from the onset.
Only 23 came off the first 10 overs and India never recovered from the slow start despite a sedate 93-run stand between Jaiswal and NT Tilak Verma (38 off 65 balls) in 23.2 overs.
Chasing 177, Bangladesh made a flying start but India bowling unit led by Ravi Bishnoi (10-3-30-4) wreaked havoc and in the 23rd over Bangladesh were 102-6. Akbar Ali (42 off 76 balls) held one end and had a partnership of 41 runs and 20 runs for sixth, seventh-wicket respectively. The play has stopped due to run and Bangladesh was 16 runs ahead according to D/L method. If play doesn’t resume Bangladesh would be new U-19 Champions.
Here are the playing 11 of both the teams:
India U-19 playing 11: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Divyaansh Saxena, Tilak Varma, Dhruv Jurel (wk), Priyam Garg (capt), Siddhesh Veer, Atharva Ankolekar, Ravi Bishnoi, Sushant Mishra, Kartik Tyagi, Akash Singh
