India Under-19s and Bangladesh Under-19s will face off in the final of the Tri-National Under-19s tournament this Sunday. Prior to the big match, the two sides will clash off in the league phase for one last time. This will be the last game for Bangladesh before the final while India still has a game to play against the home team England Under-19s. Bangladesh was the first side to seal their berth in the final.
They remained unbeaten against England winning in three while the recent most game ending in a Tie. India and Bangladesh won one game apiece when they faced in this competition. A lot of changes and experimentations could be seen from both sides. However, both sides will look to win the game for maintaining their winning momentum going into the knockout match.

The match starts at 11:00 AM local time (10:00 AM GMT) (3:30 PM IST).
The weather forecast suggests that there are chances of showers in the afternoon in Beckenham. This means the team winning the toss could be electing to chase. Since this is a secondary county ground, the drainage system and all might not be the best.
