Bangladesh’s chances to retain the ICC Under-19 World Cup was shattered after their five-wicket defeat to India in the Super League Quarterfinal at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua on Saturday, reports BSS.

The Under-19 team beat India last time by three wickets to clinch the trophy for the first time in their history. But in a repeat of the 2020 Final, India bowled first and dismissed the defending champions for 111 in 37.1 overs before their batters chased down the modest target in 30.5 overs for the loss of five wickets, according to an ICC press release.

India have a remarkably strong record in ICC Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup quarter-finals, with this their seventh win in nine matches – and they had their bowlers to thank.

India batted first in each of their Group B matches but this time their bowlers had the chance to set the tone after they won the toss.
