All the statistical highlights from the big wins by India and Bangladesh on Tuesday:
0.62 – Ravi Bishnoi’s economy rate of 0.62 during his 8-3-5-4 against Japan is now the joint 2nd most economical bowling in a U19 CWC game (Min: 48 balls). Virender Sehwag had an economy of 0.5 during his spell of 8-5-4-3 against Scotland in the 1998 edition. Nepal’s Raj Shrestha is tied along with Bishnoi as he had an economy of 0.62 during his 8-5-5-1 against Uganda in 2006.
3 – Bangladesh’s Rakibul Hasan took a hat-trick in the game against Scotland. He is now only the 3rd player from Bangladesh to take a hat-trick in Youth ODI cricket. Kamrul Islam (vs Ireland in 2010 U19 CWC) and Jubair Hossain (vs West Indies in 2013) are the other players from Bangladesh with a hat-trick in Youth ODIs.
5/4 – Ravi Bishnoi conceded five runs during his 4-wicket haul against Japan. This is now the 2nd cheapest 4-wicket haul in Youth ODI cricket behind Avesh Khan’s 4/4 against Bangladesh during the 2015 U19 Tri-series.
Bishnoi’s 5/4 is also the cheapest 4-fer in U19 CWC history as he bettered Jermaine Lawson’s 4-2-6-4 for West Indies against Zimbabwe in the 2000 edition.
15y 90d – India’s Kumar Kushagra played his first U19 CWC match on Tuesday against Japan at the age of 15 years and 90 days. He is now the youngest Indian to feature in a U19 CWC match. Zeeshan Ansari was the previous youngest Indian who was 16 years and 43 days old when he made his U19 CWC debut against Ireland in 2016.
Earlier in November last year, Kushagra made his Youth ODI debut against Afghanistan in the home series. He was only 15 years and 30 days at the time of his debut which made him the 2nd youngest Indian to feature in a Youth ODI. Piyush Chawla was 14 years and 311 days old when he made his debut at this level in 2003.
41 – Japan’s total of 41 is now the joint 3rd lowest total in Youth ODIs and the joint 2nd lowest total in the history of U19 CWC. The lowest is recorded by Scotland who were bowled out for 22 against Australia in the 2004 U19 CWC.
50 – The 7-wicket win against Scotland was the 50th win for Bangladesh in the history of U19 CWCs. India stands on the top with 60 wins in the history of the tournament while Australia and Pakistan have 55 and 54 wins respectively as on Tuesday (January 21, 2020).
166 – The game between India and Japan was completed in 166 balls; the 2nd shortest match in Youth ODI history with a result. The shortest-ever match in this format is Australia-Scotland game in 2004 U19 CWC which got over in only 158 balls. Scotland were bowled out for only 22 runs in 22.3 overs while Australia chased down the target in 3.5 overs.
271 – India’s win with 271 balls to spare is now the 2nd biggest win in terms of balls to spare in Youth ODI history. The biggest is recorded by Australia who chased down the target of 23 against Scotland in the 2004 U19 CWC edition with 277 balls to spare.
