Highlights, India vs Japan, U19 World Cup 2020: India thrash Japan by 10 wickets, storm into quarter-finals


16:30 (IST)

So a great day of cricket for India as they win by 10 wickets. Not so much for Japan who'll take this defeat and the learnings that it brings for this inexperienced young side. India will play their final match of the group stages against New Zealand which should be their toughest outing thus far. As of now, India sit on top of their table and have qualified for the quarter-finals. 

We'll be back for the live coverage of India vs New Zealand match in the Under-19 World Cup on 24th January. Until then, Goodbye!

16:22 (IST)

India captain Priyam Garg: I'm very happy with the performance. Our bowlers were good. Spinners were bowling really well but our seamers could have bowled better at the start. 

There's no pressure on us as the defending champions. It's a great opportunity for us to perform for our country and we try to do our best. 

16:21 (IST)

Japan captain Marcus Thurgate: I knew it was going to be a very tough game. It's disappointing no doubt. The first thing we can do is go back home and try and face tougher oppositions, learn from our mistakes and hopefully, we'll get better with time. 

16:15 (IST)

Man of the match, Ravi Bishnoi: I was sure of my planning, wanted to bowl wicket to wicket and I think I executed it very well. I think I will continue with my good work in the coming matches. 

16:11 (IST)

All said and done, it was a momentous day for cricket in Japan. 

16:11 (IST)

And it's all over. India chase down the measly target of 42 inside 5 overs. India win by 10 wickets with a LOT of balls to spare.

After 1 overs,India Under-19 4/0 ( Yashasvi Jaiswal 4 , Kumar Kushagra 0)
