Junior Tigers face Afghans in U19 Asia Cup semis today

BSS, Dhaka

Three days after the senior side tasting a humiliating 224-run defeat against Afghanistan in one-off Test, the Bangladesh Under-19 will take on junior Afghans side in the semifinal of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Under-19 Asia Cup at Moratuwa in Sri Lanka on Thursday.

Bangladesh came to the semifinal, having been unbeaten in group phase as they beat the likes of UAE, Nepal and hosts Sri Lanka. By being the group champions, they avoided tournament favourites India in the semifinal.

But according to ACC website, “There may be a sigh of relief among Bangladesh cricketers and management that they have managed to top group ‘B’ and avoid India in the semi-finals, but hey, Afghanistan won’t be a walk in the park in the semi-finals.

The Afghans sent Pakistan home early bundling them out for 78 runs inside 20 overs in the opening contest of the competition. They gave India a scare as well and in fact they should start the semi-final as favourites.”

Afghans chinaman Noor Ahmad and leg-spinner Shafiqullah Ghafari have been sensational in the tournament so far having bowled so well and scripted some famous wins. The two wrist spinners operate in tandem and if Bangladesh were to come on top of that phase of the game that will be the key in beating Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, India will take on Sri Lanka in the other semifinal at the same day in P Sara stadium.
