India Under-19s247/4(47.1 overs)

India move forward to the ACC U-19 Asia Cup Final on Sunday where they will take on Pakistan in what promises to be another run-feast and which we hope will go down to the wire just like the game between them in the group stage did last Sunday.

Sri Lanka never really had a grip on the game, India's bowlers not the most threatening at this level but did enough to keep the Sri Lankans in check and as well as Weerakoddy and Dickwella played, on this Kinrara wicket 244 was about 50 runs short of troubling India. India's batsmen played smart cricket, weathered all that Sri Lanka's attack hurled at them initially before dictating terms. Chand and Zol in particular caught the eye and Match Referee Aminul Islam of the ACC and Bangladesh won't have any difficulty in nominating India's captain Unmukt Chand as Man of the Match

Thanks for being with us, we look forward to welcoming you back for what promises to be a quality contest between India and Pakistan in the ACC U-19 Asia Cup final on Sunday. From the Kinrara Oval in Malaysia, good afternoon.
