Harsh Tyagi’s six-fer helped India to clinch the Under-19 Asia Cup title. India U19 beats Sri Lanka U19 by 144 runs in the final at Dhaka.
India won the toss and Electing to bat first, India scores 304/3, with four of their main five hitters posting half-hundreds of years. Yashasvi Jaiswal was in the thick of activity once more, stroking his third fifty or more score in four recreations.
The opener put on a century-remain with Anuj Rawat to set the stage for India’s innings, stroking eight limits and a six in his 113-ball 85. He lined it up with another 50 years association with Devdutt Padikkal before being caught by Kalana Perera. With both the set batsmen falling one after another, the innings debilitated to be wrecked at 192 for 3. Nonetheless, Prabh Simran Singh and Ayush Badoni turned away any further harm and took the group past the 300-run stamp. The pair stroked quickfire fifties and sewed an unbeaten 110-run remain for the fourth wicket.
Sri Lanka started relentless in the pursuit. In any case, once the second wicket match of Nishan Madushka and Pasindu Sooriyabandara was isolated after their 46-run coalition, they never made up for lost time with the pursuit. Tyagi, who rejected them two, wreaked ruin and packed away four more wickets to return figures of 6 for 38.
Navod Paranavithana’s 61-ball 48 never undermined the Indian test as wickets continued tumbling from the opposite end. Another moderate left-armer Siddharth Desai stowed two more wickets to complete with 18 in the competition, and package the restriction out for 160.
Jaiswal’s 318 runs earned him the Player of the Series grant in the 2018 U19 Asia Cup.
