Year 2021 ended on the right note for the U-19 Indian cricket team as it lifted the U-19 Asia Cup after beating Sri Lanka by nine wickets (DLS Method) in a match that was interrupted by rain on Friday in Dubai. Batting first, the Sri Lanka U-19 side was reduced to 106/9 in 38 overs as rain played spoilsport in the final. Vicky Ostwal bowled brilliantly to claim three wickets for 11 runs in eight overs. In reply, the India U-19 side was set a revised target of 102 runs which it eventually chased down in 21.3 overs with nine wickets remaining.

Opening batter Angkrish Raghuvanshi (56*) played a fine knock as India chased without much fuss.

Reactions poured in after India U-19’s stupendous title win. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and president Sourav Ganguly also congratulated the team on the win.
