Facing Bangladesh in the final quarterfinal of the ICC U19 World Cup, the Indian colts were on their best game as they demolished their Asian neighbours. Taking a cue from their seniors, the youth team destroyed Bangladesh to book a place in the semi-finals. Batting first India posted 265 before bundling out Bangladesh for a mere 134 to win by 131 runs.
India lost Manjot Kalra early but Prithvi Shaw (40) and Gill scored 86 for the second wicket to help the team get off to a good start. Subham Gill and Abhishek took the mantle from there on that made the difference for the Indian innings. A breathtaking 86 by Gill saw him score all around park as runs freely flowed from his bat in a magnificent innings. Abhishek perfectly complimented Shubham as he went onto get a half-century of his own to take the Indian total to 265 from 49.2 overs.
For Bangladesh it was a shambolic effort at trying to chase the target as they faltered badly in their efforts. Despite owner Ghosh, none of the batters even managed to get to 20 runs as the Indian bowling unit ran amuck. Nagarkoti was the pick of the Indian bowlers as he picked up 3-18 from his 8 overs and right fully wrapped up the match for India by getting the last Bangladeshi wicket. Abhishek capped off a fine batting performance with two wickets and put in one of the finest all-round performance of the tournament. He was unlucky to not win the man of the match award though which went to Shubham for his fine batting.
India now face rivals Pakistan in the semi-finals which is expected to be a fierce battle given the history between the two nations.
