One would be very surprised if the Indian team makes any changes from the XI that defeated Sri Lanka U-19 in the semi-final. Rahul Batham and Mahipal Lomror went off the field with injuries in the semi-final but are expected to play on Sunday.
West Indies U-19
Just like India, the West Indians are not expected to make any changes and will most likely continue with their winning combination.
Kishan (c), Pant, Anmolpreet, Sarfaraz, Jaffer, Sundar, Lomror, Dagar, Batham, Avesh, Khaleel.
West Indies U-19
Hetmyer (c), Pope, Imlach, Carty, Springer, Goolie, Paul, Frew, John, Joseph, Holder.
Pitch & Conditions
Going by recent matches at Mirpur, the bowlers are expected to get some assistance from the pitch. The team batting first should be happy with a total exceeding 250. The key battle will be to see the approach of India’s top-order batsmen, who are known to be aggressive, against the West Indian fast bowlers.
