All the major stats and numbers that were recorded during the U19 Asia Cup final:

4 – This game is only the second instance of four Indian batsmen scoring fifties in a Youth ODI match. As many as four Indians scored fifties during the 2004 U19 CWC game against Scotland as well.


6/38 – Harsh Tyagi became the first Indian spinner to take a six-wicket haul in Youth ODI cricket. A total of three pacers claimed six-wicket hauls for India in Youth ODI cricket thus far. Irfan Pathan’s 6/19 in the 2003 Asia Cup game against Bangladesh in 2003 are the best bowling figures for any bowler in Youth ODI history.

6/38 – Harsh Tyagi’s 6/38 is only the second six-wicket haul in a Youth ODI tournament final. India’s Abu Nechim Ahmed took 6/9 in a Tri-Series final in 2007 against Bangladesh.

24 – Ayush Badoni’s 24-ball fifty is the 5th fastest by an Indian in Youth ODI cricket. Rishabh Pant’s 18-ball fifty in the 2016 U19 CWC is the fastest in the history of Youth ODI cricket.


24 – Badoni’s 24-ball fifty is also the 2nd fastest by any player in a Youth ODI tournament final. Sarfaraz Khan’s 23-ball half-century against Bangladesh came in the Tri-nation series final. No Indian player at ODI level (Men’s ODI and Women’s ODI) have scored a fifty faster than Sarfaraz and Badoni in a tournament final.

304/3 – India’s total of 304/3 in this game is only the 2nd 300+ total in the games with Youth ODI status in the U19 Asia Cup. India made 314/8 in the 2014 U19 Asia Cup final against Pakistan at Sharjah.

Overall, India’s 304/3 is the 3rd 300+ total in a Youth ODI tournament final. The highest is 343/6 by Pakistan in a Tri-series Final against England in 2013 in Nottingham.
