AF-Y vs BN-Y Dream11 : Afghanistan look to continue their marauding ways in the Asia Cup when they step out in the second semi-final today
The 2019 edition of the ACC Under19 Asia Cup will have Afghanistan’s travails standout and etched for time to come. Making it all the way to the semi-finals of the tournamnet, the side have been on perhaps the most unprecedented and sensational spree, putting down their opponents with consummate ease.
The massive slew of skilled players in the Afghanistani cricket circuit couldn’t perhaps have been better manifested than the performances the Afghanistan U19 cricket team have doles out in the ongoing edition of the Asia Cup. The side began their life in the campaign in the most fortuitous of manners, pummelling Pakistan in their tournamnet opener, a performance they have only gone onto thrive on from ever since.
Despite losing their final group stage encounter to India, Afghanistan put in a performance filled with heart and resilience, one which showed that they are no pushovers. Despite putting on just 124 on the scoreboard, the side’s wrist spinners managed to give India a real scare as they pushed them to a nervy win, as their wrist spinners encapsulated their skill set in unison to deliver a thumping performance.
From 80-1, the two spinners snared wickets with ease to see India limping towards a win as 6 wickets fell in the matter of a few overs, seeing India languishing towards what looked to be a comfortable target to achieve. It’s a performance they’ll be looking to emanate today as well as they look to put in yet another riveting display against Bangladesh who dismissed Sri Lanka for 231 to see their 41 run win take them to the top of Group B.
