Bangladesh U-19 reach Asia Cup semis after defeating India

Bangladesh U-19 reach Asia Cup semis after defeating Indiaā€¯

This was India's second defeat in three days.

After being upset by Nepal on Sunday, the Indian colts were once again at the receiving end as Bangladesh chased down a modest 188 with eight wickets and four overs to spare in a rain-curtailed match at the Royal Selangor Club here.

Unfancied Nepal produced the shock of the tournament when they beat India last weekend and will face Afghanistan in the semi-finals on Friday after making short work of Malaysia at the Bayuemas Oval in Klang.

Earlier Bangladeshi bowlers managed to pick wickets at regular interval and India's Salman Khan top-scored with an unbeaten 39.

India's batting firepower was weakened after prodigious Mumbai batsman Prithvi Shaw was pulled out from the squad ahead of the tournament.

Apart from Salman, Harvik Desai (21) and Anuj Rawat (34) chipped in with valuable runs. The duo stitched 82 runs partnership to put their team in driver's seat.

Ghosh then combined with Mohammad Tawhid Hridoy to take his side to victory with an unbroken 83-run stand for the fourth wicket. The side rode on the heroics of Pinak Ghosh, who slammed an unbeaten knock of 81 in 77 balls. Pakistan and Afghanistan are the other two teams to reach semi-final from Group B.

Nepal thrashed Malaysia by eight wickets set up a semi-final against Bangladesh.

The match between Nepal and Malaysia saw a startling collapse.

The remaining seven wickets tumbled for the addition of 12 runs as Malaysia were shot out for 45 in 15.3 overs with Sandeep Lamicchane claiming five for eight in 4.3 overs.
