India secured a commanding 132-run victory over Nepal, successfully defending a target of 170 runs. Opting to bat first, the Uday Sharan-led team had a decent start, with openers Arshin Kulkarni (18 runs in 30 balls) and Adarsh Singh (21 runs in 18 balls) forming an initial partnership of 26 runs. However, the latter was dismissed by Nepali right-arm pacer Gulsan Jha in the fifth over of the Indian innings.

Following Adarsh Singh’s dismissal, Priyanshu Moliya (19 runs in 36 balls) joined Arshin Kulkarni at the crease, and they built a partnership of 32 runs for the second wicket. Unfortunately, their collaboration ended when Priyanshu got run out off the bowling of Aakash Chand in the 14th over. Aakash Chand also claimed the wicket of Arshin Kulkarni on the final ball of the 14th over, as Arshin nicked the ball behind into the gloves of Nepali wicketkeeper Uttam Magar as Nepal restricted India to 62-3 in 14 overs.

However, it took Nepal 33 more overs to secure another breakthrough as the partnership between Sachin Dhas and Captain Uday Sharan dominated the game. Sachin Dhas played the role of the aggressor in their 215-run partnership, smashing 116 runs in 101 balls at a strike rate of 114.85. After Sachin’s dismissal, Captain Uday Sharan continued to lead from the front, contributing 100 runs in 107 balls as the Boys in Blue concluded their innings with a total score of 297 runs in 50 overs.

In response, Nepal’s Under-19 team had a promising start with a 48-run opening partnership between Deepak Bohara (22 runs in 42 balls) and Arjun Kamal (26 runs in 64 balls). However, the dismissal of both batters by Raj Limbani (1-25) and left-arm spinner Saumy Pandey (4-29) triggered a collapse in Nepal’s batting unit. They concluded the game with a score of 165 runs for the loss of nine wickets in their allotted 50 overs, leading to the Boys in Blue winning the match by 132 runs.

Nepal’s pace bowler Gulsan Jha (3-56), Indian spinner Saumy Pandey (4-29), and medium-pacer Arshin Kulkarni (2-18) emerged as the standout bowlers in the match.

The match between Australia U19 and West Indies U19 ended up getting washed out due to the interruption of rain, while South Africa defeated Sri Lanka by a margin of 119 runs.
