Conceptualised by the Asian Cricket Council, the 2019 instalment of the U19 ACC U19 Asia Cup is ready to be heralded in today. Involving its members, the ACC has designed this showpiece tournamnet as a chance for all the Asian countries and their upbringing players to showcase their skill set on the world stage as they battle it out for a shot at wrapping their hands around the glistening trophy.
Beginning proceedings in the premier tournamnet today will be India U19 and Kuwait U19, a match which comes bearing with it the identity of what promises to be a lopsided encounter. Where India are one of the strongest and most solid sides in the U19 fraternity, having amassed a slew of laurels over the course of the last year, Kuwait are still trying to find their footing in the league, yet to thrive as a cricketing country.

Pitch Conditions And Toss
The one thing which could deter us from having a full fledged encounter is the eventuality of rain with incessant rainfall promised right at the duration of the match. With dark clouds looming over the surface, we might have a shortened encounter or even an abandoned one, leaving us yearning for cricket.
However if play does go through, rain will see the side winning the toss choose to field first. Overall, this is a sublime pitch for batting with rain bound to not hamper the batting conducive conditions too much.

IN-Y vs KUW-Y Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
The side’s captain, India U19’s opener, Dhruv Jurel is the first player we have roped into our Dream 11 outfit for this encounter. The batsman has been in terrific touch off late, scoring 163 runs in four clashes against Bangladesh U19 to emerge as one of the most consistent players for India in the U19 circuit.
Elsewhere we have opted for the one option from Kuwait as well, brining in their wicket-keeper Meet Bhavsar. He’s one of the few batsmen to have scored a century for his side and if his unit is to make things jittery for India, he’ll need to deliver the runs with the bat.
IN-Y vs KUW-Y Dream11 Batsmen
Our entire batting order is constituted of picks from India with opener Tilak Varma, Nehal Wadhera and Shashwat Rawat being selected by us. There was a coherent logic behind our picks here. With there bound to be widespread rainfall in this clash, the Indian top-order will function in full effect and in all eventuality be the only batters from the side who’ll be required to step out to the middle and ply their skill set.
IN-Y vs KUW-Y Dream11 All-Rounders
With 480 runs and 31 wickets across the U19 circuit in the country, we are picking out Mohammad Saem from Kuwait along with Abdul Sadiq with this facet having no Indian representation. We are also choosing Hamoud Jandu as we bring in three players from the side, players who can contribute with both the bat and ball, making them ideal names to indulge in for this clash.
Kuwait will struggle in this clash with India tearing them apart and the all-rounders should still offer something worthwhile to our side due to their ability to play a role in both the segments.
IN-Y vs KUW-Y Dream11 Bowling Order
A trivalent from India U10 leads our bowling pack with us beginning with the selection of the formidable Sushant Mishra. He enjoyed an extremely fruitful time in England with his 11 wickets in 5 clashes being an integral part of India’s consummate success in the series, making him the first player to be roped in by us.
Purnank Tyagi and Pankaj Yadav will be partnering him for this clash.
