Commentator: George Binoy

2.20 pm India made short work of that game to finish top of group D, Nepal have also qualified by winning two games. New Zealand and Ireland have been knocked out.

shanthosh: "@George: No one's saying he shouldn't focus on first class cricket. The point is that franchises might be interested in him, if they see a spark.. IPL is not all bad, you know :)"

Dishant: "Hold your horses guys! I still remember Ian Chappell's article in 2012 when we said Harpreet singh and Unmukt Chand should directly be drafted in senior Indian team.The fact is both of them struggled initially in domestic circuit.The process has to be completed to make these youngsters perform at highest level."

Praneeth: "Nepal were pretty good untill this match. They have the potential to go a long way this tournament. Boys would be wondering what went wrong today and the coaches/mentors should boost their confidence before the knockouts."

"I was not in a hurry, I was playing normal cricket, nothing else," says Man of the Match Rishab Pant, who made a half-century off 18 balls - the fastest recorded in U-19 internationals. He had the fastest hundred easily in his sights before he got out.

Thank you for your emails today, and thank you for reading. Cheers, I'm off for some lunch.

Lamichhane to Khan, SIX runs, sealed with a six! Sarfaraz steps out and clears the long off boundary with a clean swing of the bat, India have razed down Nepal's total with 179 balls to spare

Mohd Irshad: "Here i would agree with Binoy, First class cricket is best. IPL is not meant to create Players....owners want ready-made talent that can deliver from very first bowl. Grooming a talent is not their cup of tea and i have seen many players fading away in the light of IPL. Let them groom by Dravid while playing ranji or equivalent cricket. "
