Here we brought to you exclusive picture of India U-19 team posing with Youth Asia Cup title. Indian beat hosts Sri Lanka by 34 runs and lifts the Asian cricket council under 19 Asia cup title in Colombo this Friday at the R Premadasa Stadium.
India won the toss and chose to bat. With a good competitive 274 for eight in 50overs , it set the negotiable score for the opponents. And then with its super fine bowling effort it  bowled out Sri Lanka Under-19 to 239 in 48.4 overs.
The first five batsmen proved to be milestone in the gave.
Himanshu Rana scored 71 off 790, Shubman Gill scored 70 off 92, these two players shpwed up the best to reach for the trophy. Or rather we can say without these players laying the foundation for India’s total it wouldn’t have been possible to win.
Prithvi Shaw’s started the game as an opener with 39 dismissal at the team score of 67, after which Rana and Gill together gave 88 runs for the second wicket. Then later, Abhishek Sharma with 29 runs,
middle-order batsman Salman Khan with 26 runs and tailender Kamlesh Nagarkoti 23 runs contributed to the team’s victory.

In Sri Lankan U-19 team, pacer Nipun Ransika for 3/50 and left-arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama for 3/53 played well with six wickets against India. But unfortunately, Sri Lanka lost its opener earlier. Vishva Chathuranga returned back at mere score of 13 followed by Reven Kelly who scored 62 and then Hasitha Boyagoda took it to pitch for  37 stabilizing their chase with a decent 78-run. Kamindu Mendis completed his half century with 53runs.
And eventually, playing under pressure the Lankans lost all their hope in last 10 overs when it became quite evident  that the score was slipping out of their hands with their last six batsmen not being able to score more than 43 runs.
The turning point for the match showed up when Sri Lanka was in control do the chase at 196 for 4 in 37.4 overs and then with losing wickets.
