India U-19 are in a strong position against Pakistan U-19 in the Asia Cup Final at Sharjah on Saturday. India are on 152 for two in 25 overs. Pakistan had won the toss and elected field in he final. Sanju Samson (39) and skipper Vijay Zol (40) are the unbeaten batsman for India.

India U-19 got off to a brisk start with Ankush Bains taking his chances against the wayward Pakistan pacers, Zia-ul-Haq and Salman Saeed. Saeed in particular gave away the initial momentum by conceding five wides and 13 runs overall in his first over of the match. Bains was in no mood to let go off the start and smashed the bowlers all around.

Zia-ul-Haq got the first breakthrough with the wicket of Akhil Herwadkar for 12. Bains though continued and was finally dismissed by leg-spinner Karamat Ali for 47 from 34 balls which included seven boundaries and a six.

India looked subdued after two quick wickets, but  skipper Zol and Samson rebuilt the innings. Samson soon got into his groove playing his shots at ease.
