India and England kick-started the Tri-Nation Under-19s Tournament in Worcester but at the end of first-round games, the two teams stand poles apart. India won both matches by a comfortable margin while the hosts England lost their both games thus far. In the first match, India chased down the target of 205 comfortably as the opener Yashasvi Jaiswal anchored the chase with a 78-run knock. Jaiswal continued his form by scoring yet another fifty, this time in the match against Bangladesh.
However, it was skipper Priyam Garg who made a major impact during this game. He scored an unbeaten 97-ball 100 to help India finish on 264/5. Bangladesh were bundled out for 226 in 47.1 overs in the response. England, on the other hand, lost to Bangladesh as well. The visitors limited England to 200/7 which was chased with ease. Ben Charlesworth’s absence is felt by England as Lewis Goldsworthy has scored two fifties in two games but the rest of the top-order failed to score big.
The 4th game of the Tri-Nation Under-19s Tournament between England Under-19s and India Under-19s will be played at the College Ground in Cheltenham.
The match starts at 11:00 AM local time (10:00 AM GMT) (3:30 PM IST).
A dry track could be seen at the College Ground in Cheltenham similar to that of the previous game between India and Bangladesh. India U-19s finished with 264/5 in their 50 overs while Bangladesh bowled out for 229 as they failed to score quickly towards the end of the game.
