Ind vs Ban, U19 World Cup finals: Bangladesh has won the first title of U19 ICC World Cup winners as they have declared a victory over India by three wickets in the finals of Ind vs Ban match by DLS method.
As the cloud burst in the second innings, it has brought a stroke of very bad luck to India. They did not start well with the bat as well as wickets were fallen apart early. Bangladeshi Tigers depart the Indian batsmen at the terrible total of 177 and set the target of 176 for themselves.
Team India might have turned the game but they could not. Even when the covers were on, Bangladesh was ahead of the opposition if taking DLS into perspective. Also, the rain did not move their way as Bangladesh has won by the DLS method and gain the first title of ICC U19 World Cup winners.
India failed with the bat as only three of the batsmen reached into double figures. Yashasvi Jaiswal tried to play well but could not bring his hundred. He was trapped on 88 from 121 as Shoriful Islam got him and Tanzid Hasan did not miss. The other two men that reached into double figures with the batting knocks were Tilak Verma and Dhruv Jurel.
On the contrary, Bangladesh bowling line-up has been demolishing for U19 India as Avishek Dash stroke with 3 wickets in 9 overs conceding 40 runs. Shoriful Islam and Tanzim Hasan have been other two well contributors with two wickets each. Rakib ul Hasan got his one only.
Bangladesh delivering their best in all the departments did not lose all of their wickets. However, the wicket-keeping batsman and skipper, Akbar remained not out throughout the innings as rain sealed the match in their favor.
The Tigers looked in trouble on numerous occasions but injured Parvez Hossain Emon led the chase with a solid 47 off 79 balls. Skipper Akbar Ali provided excellent support from the other end, building a crucial 41-run partnership for the seventh wicket with Emon. In the end, Ali (43*) steered Bangladesh across the finish line with 23 balls to spare after their target was reduced to 170 (DLS) in 46 overs due to rain interruption. 33 extras also didn’t help India’s cause, defending a small total. Ravi Bishnoi produced a magical spell, claiming 4/30 but that went in vain as the pacers led the team down.

The game ended when Ankolekar returned and starts with a flighted delivery and Rakibul Hasan chipped it over mid-wicket for a single. That was a VICTORY FOR BANGLADESH! Bangladesh has clinched their maiden U-19 title. They have outclassed India in every department of the game.
