Earlier, in the first semifinal, Pakistan A defeated Sri Lanka A by 60 runs to get to the final.
After defeating Bangladesh A by 51 runs in the quarterfinals here on Friday, India A set up a potentially explosive Emerging Asia Cup final against Pakistan A.
Bangladesh had India on the ropes, bowling them out for 211, a total made possible by captain Yash Dhull’s 66 off 85 balls.
However, the Indian spinners took advantage of the slightly tacky pitch to dismiss Bangladesh for 160 runs and celebrate a magnificent triumph.
Nishant Sindhu, a left-arm spinner, exacerbated Bangladesh’s collapse with a five-wicket haul (5 for 20).
Dhull, however, was the true hero of India’s win. He’s been referred to as a “cotton wool player” on the Indian domestic circuit, and his performance today demonstrated why.
Dhull, at the age of 20, has a much more level head on his shoulders. When India were 75 for 2 in the 19th over, the Delhi kid stepped to the middle.
Dhull was immediately confronted by a group of pinpoint Bangladesh bowlers, who used a hint of turn to maintain the shackles on Indian batsmen.
The majority of them fell in their attempt to step on the throttle, and Dhull was tasked with pushing the Indian innings.
He also handled the pressure well. Dhull batted for 30 overs in total during the match, and he was the last man out in the 50th over.
