The second semi-final of the ACC Men’s Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2023 will be played at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. India A will lock horns with Bangladesh A in this high-octane clash that will take place on Friday, July 21.

India A are the only unbeaten side in the competition. They have played three games so far and won them all. They finished the group stages at the top of the table after defeating Pakistan A in their last fixture.

Rajvardhan Hangargekar wreaked havoc with a fifer to help India A knock over Pakistan A on 205. In reply, Sai Sudharsan smashed a brilliant unbeaten ton to take his side across the line in the 37th over. India A will be looking to repeat their performance against Bangladesh A in the first semi-final.

Bangladesh A, meanwhile, lost their opening game against Sri Lanka A but rebounded to win the next two to book a place in the semi-finals of the ACC Men’s Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2023. They beat Afghanistan A in their last league game and will be eager to carry forward the winning momentum.

Batting first, Bangladesh A posted a mammoth 308 on the board, thanks to a wonderful century from Mahmudul Hasan Joy. The bowlers then stepped up and backed up their batters to restrict Afghanistan A to 287/8 to win the game by 21 runs.
