ACC U-19 Asia Cup, 2018
India Youth vs Sri Lanka Youth, Final
After weeks of riveting cricket action, we are finally down to the summit clash of the tournament where India will take on Sri Lanka in a bid to be crowned U-19 Asia Cup champions.
India had an imperious campaign in the group stage as they swatted aside Nepal [172 runs], UAE [227 runs] and defending champions Afghanistan by 51 runs to storm into the semi-finals against Bangladesh.
Venue:- Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka
When:- Sunday, October 07, 2018, 08:30 AM IST
The semi-final against Bangladesh was a closely contested affair with India's batting in the absence of Pawan Shah coming under the scanner for the very first time as they were skittled out for 172 in 49.3 overs but an imperious bowling effort led by Mohit Jangra (3-25) and Siddharth Desai (3-35) edged Bangladesh by two runs.
Sri Lanka, meanwhile, pipped defending champions Afghanistan thanks to a sublime 129-ball-111 by Nuwanidu Fernando and Shashika Dulshan's 4-wicket-haul (4-24) by 31 runs to step one inch closer towards title glory.

Here's how both teams might line-up for the finale:-
Wicketkeeper: PrabhSimran Singh
Batsmen: Devdutt Padikkal, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Anuj Rawat, Pavan Shah (D:-Yash Rathod)
All-rounder: Ayush Badoni, Sameer Choudhary, Ajay Gangapuram
Bowler: Siddharth Desai, Mohit Jangra, Harsh Tyagi
Sri Lanka U-19:-
Wicket-keeper: Nishan Madushka
Batsmen: Pasindu Sooriyabandara, Nipun Dananjaya, Nuwanidu Fernando, Kamil Mishara
All-rounder: Dulith Wellalage, Navod Paranavithana
Bowlers: Shashika Dulshan, Nipun Malinga, Kalana Perera, Kalhara Senarathne
Wicket-keeper:- Both, PrabhSimran Singh (109 runs at 27.25) and Nishan Madushka have had a lacklustre tournament thus far. You can choose either of them in your Fantasy XI.
Batsmen:- Yashasvi Jaiswal (233 runs at 77.67), Nuwanidu Fernando (191 runs at 95.50), Devdatt Padikkal (152 runs at 50.67) have been in sumptuous form throughout the tournament.
All-rounders:- Ayush Badoni (148 runs at 49.33), Dulith Wellage (7 wickets at 14.29) are ideal picks for the all-rounder spot.
Bowlers:- Siddarth Desai (16 wickets at 7.19), Shashika Dulshan (11 wickets at 7.55), Harsh Tyagi (8 wickets at 11.25), Mohit Jhangra (3-25 in the semi-finals) and Kalhara Senarathne (7 wickets at 16.43) have been the spearheads with the bowl for their respective sides.
Yashasvi Jaiswal and Nuwanidu Fernando have been in imperious touch in what has been a bowler-dominated competition. Both can take the game away with their pulsating batting and can help you double your points.
Since it has been a bowler-dominated tournament, the likes of Siddarth Desai and Shashika Dulshan are also prudent candidates for captain/vice-captain.
