Previous U19 Asia Cup final

Dec 31, 2021 2:49 PM IST

All eyes on Yash Dhull

The skipper will be among the players to look out for when the Indian team steps in for the chase. He has had his fair of captaincy in the past. He has the experience of leading Delhi’s U-16, U-19, and India ‘A’ U-19 sides, and the right-hander is often termed as a classy batter.

Sri Lanka U19 aim to go past 100

Raveen De Silva (13*) and Yasiru Rodrigo (4*) are the two unbeaten batters in the middle. The pair has added 17. Indian bowlers would be looking to get a couple of more wickets and finish this as quickly as possible.

Sri Lanka 74/7

Dec 31, 2021 1:57 PM IST

The story so far

On a wicket that contradicts Sri Lanka's decision to bat first, Indian seamers and spinners have been brilliant. Ravi Kumar drew first blood and Raj Bawa also added one wicket under his belt, leaving Sri Lanka reeling at 15/2 after the first Powerplay. Kaushal Tambe joined the wicket-takers list by picking two quick wickets but the highlight of the day so far has been Vicky Ostwal's display with the ball. He's bowled eight overs so far, conceding just 11 runs and picking up three wickets.

Dec 31, 2021 1:25 PM IST

DRINKS

Drinks are on the field and the Indian colts would be looking to clean up the tail as soon as possible. Ostwal has been brilliant so far and he can pick up a couple of more wickets too. It all started with Ravi Kumar and Raj Bawa putting pressure on the SL batters. Kaushal Tambe triggered the further collapse by picking up two wickets. Also, it's starting to get dark out there and the lights are on.

Sri Lanka 51/5

Dec 31, 2021 12:50 PM IST

WICKET!

Another one bites the dust. Rajapaksa caught by Shaik Rasheed as Ostwal gets his name in the wicket-takers column. This could perhaps finish early if Sri Lanka continue to slump in this manner.

Sri Lanka 47/5

Dec 31, 2021 12:41 PM IST

Pathiraja decided to leave that delivery but it slid in to disturb the woodwork. Things not going in Sri Lanka's favour at the moment. Tambe gets his second of the day.
