U-19 World Cup: India Thrash Japan By 10 Wickets


Bloemfontein: Four-time champions India thrashed Japan by 10 wickets in a Group A match of the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Bloemfontein on Tuesday.

The game on Tuesday was a complete mismatch with Japan playing a major ICC event for the first time.

Opting to field first, four-time champions India bowled out a hapless Japan for 41 runs in 22.5 overs with leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi taking four wickets. It was the joint second-lowest total by a team in the Under-19 World Cup and joint third lowest in the under-19 cricket history.

India needed just 4.5 overs to complete the formalities with Yashasvi Jaiswal and Kumar Kushagra remaining unbeaten on 29 and 13 respectively.

In their tournament opener on Sunday, India had beaten Sri Lanka by 90 runs.

India will play their final league game against New Zealand on Friday.
