India Under-19 491 for 3 dec and 245 for 6 (Mukund 108, Swapnil Singh 22*, Amanpreet Singh 0*) drew with Sri Lanka Under-19 387 (Chandimal 143)
The second Test between India Under-19s and Sri Lanka Under-19s petered into a draw on the final day at Kandy, but there was enough time for Abhinav Mukund to crack another hundred.
Mukund smacked 108 from 134 balls in India's second innings, adding to his superb 205 in the first innings to take his team to 245 for 6. It was an impressive recovery for India having earlier been reduced to 50 for 4. Sachith Pathirana took 3 for 65, including the wicket of Saurav Tiwary who starred in a 145-run stand with Mukund, while Ishara Jayaratne took 2 for 33.
Mukund finally fell for 108 and, with India leading by 349 runs, the match ended in a draw.
