U19 Aisa Cup: In a high-stakes match between the two arch rivals that went down to the wire in Dubai on Saturday, Ahmad Khan emerged as the Men in Green’s shining knight in shining armour, smashing a boundary on the final ball of Pakistan’s innings to take them home in a pressure game. Khan’s last-ball boundary in Ravi Kumar’s 50th over guided Pakistan U-19 to a memorable victory over Team India in Dubai. This defeat came against Pakistan, which allowed Daniel Alexander to troll the Indian team once more. He always tries to troll Indian cricket with his baseless tweets, as seen on his Twitter handle, and today was no exception.
The Indian team, which batted first, struggled in the early stages of their batting innings, losing four wickets for only 41 runs, including a first-ball duck from skipper Yash Dhull. However, thanks to some useful partnerships lower down the order, the Indian U19 team managed to post a respectable score of 237/10 in 49 overs. Pakistan’s best bowler was Zeeshan Zameer, who took 5/60 in 10 overs. While chasing the target, Pakistan lost their first wicket for zero in the second ball of the innings, but Muhammad Shehzad took over and played a critical role in getting his team over the line. Mohammad Shehzad was named “Man of the Match” after scoring 81 off 105 balls. Daniel Alexander, who is always seen posting many things against Indian cricket, again tried for the same, but it seems Indian fans were ready for him this time and responded in his way. So here are some responses from the fans.
Indian team has won 7 U19 Asia cup titles out of 8, so how will you rate Indian team performance so far in this tournament? Can India overcome this loss? You can share your thoughts with us in the comment section and please like for more cricket related updates.
