Congratulations to Nepal Under-19 on the way they have performed so far in the tournament.

Adds that there are a few disappointments on the batting side. Mentions that strike rotation needs improvement.

He mentions that he can slog big, and being out there with Uday helped him a lot. He says that he idolizes Sachin Tendulkar, and that’s why he has taken jersey no. 10.

The Presentation ceremony…

Earlier in the game, after electing to bat first, India Under-19 lost 3 for 62 and were in a situation of bother, but the middle order tuned up well, and it was a good test for the young Indian batters. Musheer Khan was held back to as low as 6 in order to give chances to others, and Sachin Dhas proved his worth in the fold with a sensational century. Sachin wasn’t the only centurion for India Under-19, as skipper Uday Saharan too scored a ton today. The duo of Sachin Dhas and Uday Saharan put together a record partnership of 215 for the fourth wicket. For Nepal Under-19, it was all about Gulshan Jha in the bowling department, as he scalped three, including the two centurions late in the innings. Aakash Chand took a wicket as well.

21:51 (IST) Feb 02

The bowlers of India Under-19 were brilliant on the day, as they have been throughout the competition so far. The side went wicketless in the powerplay for the first time in this tournament but soon made up for it by chipping in with wickets left, right, and front. Saumy Pandey was once again brilliant with the ball, as he picked up four crucial wickets while Arshin Kulkarni got two. Raj Limbani, Aaradhya Shukla, and Murugan Abhishek got one each, and it was quite a comprehensive bowling performance by the young boys in blue to seal their spot in the semi-finals. However, they could now bowl out the last two men from Nepal Under-19.

21:49 (IST) Feb 02

Chasing down a mammoth total of 297, the Nepal Under-19 innings got off to a steady start as the openers had a partnership of 48 right at the top between Dipak Bohara and Arjun Kumal. Once the partnership was broken, it all broke down for Nepal Under-19 as they lost wickets in a cluster and were unable to rotate strikes or score runs. Only Deepak Bohara, Arjun Kumal, and Dev Khanal managed to get started, but nobody built up on that, and the rest were bundled inside single digits. Dev Khanal put up a strong stand and survived for a long time. It was a horrible batting performance from Nepal Under-19 and something they should take learning from going forward in the future. The last wicket partnership was also a big positive for the innings, and they survived fifty overs against a strong bowling lineup.
