Match Details:

The 3rd match of the 5-match One-Day series between India Under-23s and Bangladesh Under-23s at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.

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


Bangladesh Under-23s levelled the 5-match One-Day series against India Under-23s with a close 5-run win during the rain-affected 2nd match. Skipper Saif Hassan’s 64 and Fardeen Hasan’s 47* put the visiting side at 149/2 after 36 overs. With the rain interruption lasting longer, the match was reduced to 36 overs apiece and the home side needed to chase 218 in the restricted overs.

Top four added two partnerships in excess of 75 runs as India U23s matches the required rate and moved on with wickets in hand. Skipper Priyam Garg got out in the bowling of Sumon Khan when they were 10 runs away from a win and still got 8 balls to get it. However, India added four further runs and lost the match.  The hosts won the first match by 34 runs for which reserve day was used.

Weather Condition/Report:

A far better weather could be seen in Lucknow when compared to the forecast of the first two ODIs where rain lasted longer. We might see clouds throughout the Monday but the rain is expected only between 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM local time.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The pitch here at the Ekana Stadium usually benefits the spinners. The first game of the series witnessed even the part-timers picking up wicket. There will be new ball swing in the morning part of the first innings.

Average first innings score: 192 (Full 50-over Youth ODIs)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 1
