India clinched Under-19 Asia Cup 2018 after defeating Sri Lanka by 144 runs title in Dhaka yesterday.
India outplayed Sri Lanka in all departments by first scoring an imposing 304 for six after skipper Prabh Simran Singh won the toss and elected to bat.
Openers Yashasvi Jaiswal (85) and Anuj Rawat (57) made solid foundation with 121-run stand. Ayush Badoni’s unbeaten knock of 52 off 28 balls helped India to reach a mammoth total.
The island nation were never in the chase as they were all out for 160 in 38.4 overs losing wickets at regular intervals with left-arm spinner Harsh Tyagi’s registering brilliant figures of 6 for 38 in 10 overs.
For his consistency (318 runs in the tournament), Jaiswal was adjudged man-of-the-tournament.
