The stage is set for a clash of titans when India U-19 A and India U-19 B will lock horns at the St Xavier’s College Ground. This match will undoubtedly be the game of the series as both the teams are still unbeaten so far. This game can well and truly decide who will finish first at the end of this of this series.
India U-19 A defeated the Afghanistan team by 92 runs in their previous match. Having opted to ball first, the visitors bowled well to restrict the Indian team for 252 runs on the board. Shafiqullah Ghafari bowled a lovely spell and took four wickets for 35 runs. In reply, Afghanistan could only manage to score 160 runs as they perished under pressure. Indian bowlers took wickets on regular intervals to win their second game on the trot. India A would be eyeing for the same kind of dominant performance in the upcoming match.
On the other hand, India U-19 B is coming after a close 1-run victory against the Proteas. Having won the toss, India decided to bat first, but soon the decision backfired as the hosts were restricted for just 198 runs on the scoreboard. South Africa looked favorites to win their first game on this Indian tour; however, Indian bowlers had other plans. The hosts showed character in the second innings and won the match by one run in the very last ball of the game.
