India vs Japan Highlights: Japan have been bundled out for 41 - joint second lowest score in the history of the Under 19 World Cup. Kartik Tyagi set the ball rolling up front with the new ball as he picked up two wickets on the bounce. Ravi Bishnoi then ran through Japan’s top-and-middle order with 4 wickets to hasten Japan’s quick demise. The Indian openers came out, enjoyed themselves and romped home in 4.5 overs. Comprehensive, clinical by the defending champions.
Game set and match
That ended fast. The target has been chased down in 4.5 overs and India have annihilated Japan here by 10 wickets.
Japan shot out for 41
The final wicket falls and India have shot away japan for 41 in 22.5 overs. The bowlers breathed fire and Japan never really had any chance. Tyagi and Bishnoi were the stars with the ball.
Aakash Singh strikes
After a long wait, India get their 9th wicket.
Tyagi gets his 3rd
Full ball nipping back in, Clements walks across far too much and is trapped bang in front. India’s party continues.
The carnage continues- full ball, seams away, takes the outside edge. Garg throws himself from cover to his right and plucks it airbone,
Ashley Thurgate departs
Fullish googly, Thurgate looks to drive it through covers but the ball spins and grabs the outside edge. Jaiswal crouches low and takes a sharp catch.
Another one bites the dust
Two leggies and then follows it up with a googly. Fartyal presses forward to block and gets beaten by the in-spin. Pinned on the front leg adjacent to off. That’s hitting off and middle.
Bishnoi comes and strikes
The leggie comes into the attack and picks 2 wickets in 2 balls. Japan are reeling, they have lost 4 wickets in under 8 overs!
The fast bowler has two in two balls and Indian bowlers finally they have success. Tyagi has struck twice in two balls, Japan have been sliced open.
Superb start by India
This is sensational bowling by these two. Pace, movement and hostile. The Japanese batsmen cannot lay bat on ball at the moment.
Aakash Singh from the other end
After the pacy first over, Aakash Singh will take the ball from the other hand. Boy, and what a start, fast inswinging yorker to start his over.
Pacy and accurate
Tyagi is a future star - he has pace and he gets the ball to move either ways. It was a top first over by the bowler. India look sharp, already!
Marcus Thurgate: We wanted to bowl first, wasn’t ready for this. Playing against India, it’s a great challenge. It (the experience) has been great. We’ve never been in a tournament like this. It’s also great for all the Associate cricketing teams. Same team.
Priyam Garg: We have decided to bowl first. There’s a bit of moisture on the pitch. Very happy with the performance, was a good start. We have made three changes.
