Sri Lanka Under-19 pacers pulled off a fine performance as they bowled out India Under-19 for 209 in a warm-up tie of the ICC Under-19 World Cup at Abu Dhabi on February 10, 2014.

The Indian batsmen never really looked like converting their starts to big scores as they succumbed to the Sri Lankan bowlers led by Binura Fernando, who finished with figures of four for 42.

The highest scorer in the Indian batting was Deepak Hooda, who scored a valuable 39 late down the order and ensured that the Indians did not suffer the ignominy of being shot out for less than 200.

The top-three Indian batsmen, which included Ankush Bains (24), Akhil Herwadkar (29) and skipper Vijay Zol (25) did get the initial starts but were nipped in the bud by Fernando, who accounted for the first two.

India’s second highest scorer was Shreyas Iyer (31) who lent some respectability to the Indian innings thanks to his sensible batting and ensured that India had something to put on board for the Sri Lankans to chase.

Apart from Hooda and Iyer, none of the other batsmen looked good enough to essay a long run at the crease and were found wanting by Fernando and company.

Brief scores:

India Under-19 209 in 45.5 overs (Shreyas Iyer 31, Deepak Hooda 39; Binura Fernando 4 for 42, Harsha Rajapaksha 2 for 22, Anuk Fernando 2 for 44) vs Sri Lanka Under-19.
