Teams to be updated after the toss if the lineup comes.

Match details:

Series: ACC U19 Asia Cup 2019
Venue: R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo
Date: 14th Sept 2019
Time: 09:30 am IST

Preview:

The tri-series finalists are once again coming against each other in the U19 Asia Cup final. Both the teams are playing good cricket at the moment and there is no doubt that they have dominated and clean swept the league matches in their respective groups. The team winning this match will take crown as Junior Asia Champions. India are definitely favorites for this match but this won’t be an easy contest.

Pitch and weather report: 

Chasing has been very difficult on this pitch as the pitch goes on the slower side in the 2nd inning. The weather will be cloudy at the start of the 1st innings that will help the fast bowlers naturally but there is no chances of heavy rain to interrupt the game in the between.

Probable playing XI:

India U19:

Arjun Azad, Nehal Wadhera, Shashwat Rawat, Dhruv Jurel (wk & c), Tilak Varma, Akash Singh, Atharva Ankolekar, Purnank Tyagi, Vidyadhar Patil, Karan Lal, Sushant Mishra.

Bangladesh U19:

Tanzid Hasan, Towhid Hridoy, Parvez Hossain Emon, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Shamim Hossain, Shahadat Hossain, Akbar Ali (c), Rakibul Hasan, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, Shoriful Islam, Tanzim Hasan Sakib.

Top picks:

Dhruv Jurel and Akbar Ali: Both are the safest bet in this keeper section as Dhruv Jurel has scored tons of runs in the last tour and has impressed everyone. Although, he has failed to convert on this tour and he is due for his big knock. On the other hand, Akbar Ali has cashed all the limited chances that he has got. He has played well lower down the order and looked solid and more reliable than Dhruv jurel.

Arjun Azad: He is the top run-getter in this tournament and most interesting, he will be high on confidence as he scored a sensational century against the arch-rival Pakistan.

Atharva Ankolekar: He is getting wickets in bunches and winning the match with the ball single handily. 

Towhid Hridoy:  He is the Shakib Al Hasan of the junior team. He bats at number 3 and bowls his full quota of overs.

Mahmudul Hasan Joy: He scored magnificent 126 against Sri Lanka and proved one of the most reliable batsmen for Bangladesh. He also scored a century in the final against India in the tri-series final.

Shahadat Hossain: He is a player to watch out for. He has done quite well in this tournament.

Tanzim Hasan Sakib: He is the star with the ball in this tournament for Bangladesh. He bagged 3 and 2 wickets respectively in the last two matches.

Captaincy options: Towhid Hridoy, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, and Atharva Ankolekar
