U-19 World Cup: Indian colts take on Sri Lanka in opener

Jan 18, 2020 18:26 IST

It will be a double delight for the Indian cricket fans on Sunday as apart from a series-deciding 3rd ODI vs Australia, India's youth side will open their Under-19 World Cup campaign against Sri Lanka in South Africa. Defending champions India have been on a good run for quite a while now and haven't lost a single bilateral series since their Under-19 World Cup triumph in 2018. Moreover, they have won 22 of their 31 matches during this period. The boys in blue also have a strong record in the tournament having won the youth World Cup 4 times in the past, more than any other side in the competition. India is also the side with most wins in Under-19 World Cups, having won 58 of their 77 matches so far. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, may not have won the title even once but India can't afford to take their neighbors lightly. The top 2 teams from each group of 4 will qualify for the super league phase, so every game is crucial.
