India 'A' continued their dominant run in the ongoing ACC Men's Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2023. They secured an emphatic 51-run victory over Bangladesh 'A' in the second semi-final of the tournament at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Friday, July 21.

Bangladesh 'A' won the toss and chose to field first in the knockout fixture. The Indian side failed to register an impressive total upfront, getting bundled out for just 211 runs. Skipper Yash Dhull delivered a clutch knock, scoring 66 off 85 balls.

India 'A' came up with a sensational bowling performance, folding Bangladesh 'A' for 160 to advance to the final. It is worth mentioning that the game seemed to be slipping out of India's hands as the opposition were cruising at 70/0 at one stage. However, the young Indian side bounced back by picking wickets at regular intervals.

Following the side's comprehensive win, several fans took to social media to laud their effort. Certain fans also trolled Bangladesh 'A' for losing the game despite an impressive start to the run chase.

Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter:

Nishant Sandhu emerged as the pick of the India 'A' bowlers, finishing with a spectacular five-wicket haul. Manav Suthar also chipped in by scalping three scalps.

Notably, Bangaldesh 'A' fielded an experienced side with several players having international experience, including the likes of Soumya Sarkar, Mahedi Hasan, and Mohammad Naim. However, they failed to upstage an India 'A' side, consisting of youngsters with no international appearances to their name.
