INDIA Under-19 vs Pakistan LIVE: Yash Dhull led India takes on Pakistan in Under 19 Asia Cup: Follow LIVE Updates
Match: INDU19 vs PAKU19, Group A, ACC U19 Asia Cup 2021
Date: Saturday, December 25, 2021
Time: 11:00 AM
Venue: ICC Academy Ground No 2, Dubai
India’s Harnoor Singh, Yash Dhull and allrounder Rajvardhan Hangargekar will look to continue their excellent form. The trio had scored 120, 63 and unbeaten 48 against UAE. Rajvardhan Hangargekar, in particular, had also taken 3 wickets during his first outing.
On the other hand, the likes of Pakistan bowlers Ahmad Khan, Awais Ali & Zeeshan Zameer had made light work of Afghanistan to bundle them out for just 52 runs. But Afghanistan gave them a major scare by taking 6 wickets to make it a hard-fought chase. As a result, India are now favourite against Pakistan in the upcoming battle.
The ICC Academy Ground 2 is excellent for both batters and bowlers. The new ball comes nicely onto the bat which makes it easy for batters to score runs. Later the ball tends to hold on to the surface to become a spin paradise. Luckily, the day game will be barred from the presence of dew.
