The Yash Dhull-led Indian side crushed Sri Lanka by nine wickets in the final of the Under 19 Men’s Asia Cup 2021 to seal their eighth title at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday.

Chasing the revised target of 102 in 38 overs due to the DLS method, India opener Angkrish Raghuvanshi played a match-winning unbeaten knock of 56 off 67 balls to help his side register a dominating win over Sri Lanka in 21.3 overs. Shaik Rasheed also chipped in with a valuable 31 not out off 49 deliveries.

Earlier, Indian bowlers put up a disciplined show to restrict Sri Lanka for just 106/9. Vicky Ostwal was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets, including two in a single over. He conceded only 11 runs in 8 overs with three maidens.

Apart from the Pune-lad, medium-pacer Ravi Kumar (1//17), Rajvardhan Hangargekar (1/26), and Raj Bawa (1/23) claimed one wicket each. All-rounder Kaushal Tambe took two wickets for 23 in six overs.
