Match Details:

The 2nd game of the 5-match Youth ODI series will be played between India Under-19s and Afghanistan Under-19s at the Ekana Cricket Stadium B ground, Lucknow.

The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (IST) (3:30 AM GMT)


A lot of hopes were on Afghanistan Under-19s coming into the series against India Under-19s considering how they performed in the U19 Asia Cup a couple of months ago. However, the first game of the 5-match ODI series turned out to be a different story. The visiting team rattled for just 171 runs as no player converted the start they got. Four bowlers took two or more wickets between them for India. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who took two wickets, smashed an unbeaten 83-ball 108. He struck 16 fours and four maximums as India U19s completed a 9-wicket win with 134 balls to spare.

Weather Condition/Report:

The venue could be under clouds for a brief period of time on Sunday but no rain is forecasted during the match timings.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The B ground of the Ekana Cricket Stadium produced another low first-innings total. In eight U19 matches hosted by the venue, the teams batting first crossed 230 only once. The chasing teams have won the majority of the matches as the low targets aren’t threatening enough. Sunday’s match won’t be any different from the ground’s history.

Average first innings score: 193 (Under-19s matches)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 5, Lost – 3

Tilak Varma and Yashasvi Jaiswal are quite important considering their recent form with the bat. Both can bowl decent number of overs which was evident with Jaiswal taking two wickets.

Noor Ahmad, the 14-year-old chinaman, picked the lone wicket in the 1st ODI. He took a 4-wicket haul against India in U19 Asia Cup.
