SF: INDIA AND BANGLADESH MOVE TO UNDER-19 ASIA CUP FINALS

Rain washed out both semi-finals of the ACC Under-19 Asia Cup as India and Bangladesh moved to the finals of the eight nation tournament on Thursday.

Sri Lanka and India were drawn to play one semi-final at P. Sara Oval while Afghanistan and Bangladesh were scheduled to play the other semi at De Zoysa Stadium in Moratuwa. No play was possible at both venues due to heavy rain and the games were called off  at  2:15pm local time.

India with three wins in the group stage had topped Group ‘A’ while Bangladesh, who had remained unbeaten in their group, had topped Group ‘B’.  Hence both teams qualified for the finals.

While Sri Lanka would have found India to be too strong to their liking, Afghanistan will be ruing their chances as their bowling had looked formidable throughout the tournament. Afghanistan had beaten Pakistan in their opening game and nearly overcame India as well in the group stage.

The final will take place at R. Premadasa Stadium on Saturday.
