India, coached by Rahul Dravid, continued their brilliant run of form as they clinched the Under-19 Asia Cup title after defeating Sri Lanka by 34 runs in the final at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Friday.

This was India’s second win in the Asia Cup under-19 cricket tournament, having won the title in 2013/14 by defeating Pakistan by 40 runs and sharing the trophy in the first edition held in Malaysia in 2012/13.

India chose to bat first after winning the toss in the Asia Cup under-19 cricket final and thanks to brilliant performances from Himanshu Rana and Shubhman Gill, they finished their innings on 273/8. In response, Sri Lanka started well, but a couple of wickets from Rahul Chahar (3/22) and a couple more from Abhishek Sharma (4/37) resulted in a collapse where the hosts lost seven wickets for just 43 runs.
