Team News

India U-19

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.

Possible XIs

India U-19

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.
