Undefeated India is all set to take on the Sri Lankan team in the semi-final of the U19 Asia Cup, 2019. Last year, both teams faced each other in the finals of the U19 Asia Cup 2018 finals, when India defeated the Lankans by a wide margin of 144 runs. Indian opener Arjun Azad, who hit a half-century in the first match against Kuwait and followed it up with a ton against rivals Pakistan in their second match, is in great form.
Arjun was awarded the title of player of the match in both innings. Even though he missed more runs against Afghanistan in the third match, India still managed to win the match, thanks in great measure to Sushant Mishra, who helped the team continue with the winning streak. Sushant was awarded the player of the match title for his five-wicket haul. India has been undefeated in the U19 Asia Cup 2019 so far.
The team won against Kuwait by 7 wickets and gave Pakistan a target of 305, with the rival team collapsing at 245. India easily restricted Afghanistan to 124 to clinch victory and now, the team will face the runner up of U19 Asia Cup 2018 to retain their title. India vs Sri Lanka, 1st Semi-final of the U19 Asia Cup 2019, is scheduled for September 12, 2019 at P Sara Oval, Colombo.
