Another India win
Elsewhere, U-19 coach Venkatesh Prasad on his wards winning the Afro-Asian tournament at the expense of Sri Lanka:
The captain (Ravikant Shukla) said that it was a good preparation for the World Cup to be held in Sri Lanka next February, after the win over Australia in the one-day home series. Every aspect was analysed by the team and the coach showed a lot of involvement.
When asked what was his planning when Sri Lankan openers were scoring at a brisk pace, Shukla said he asked his bowlers to stick to the basics. This fetched rich dividends.
