The hosts then returned to overhaul the target, scoring 114 for five in 28.1 overs to complete the win.

Besides Suthar, Vidyadhar Patil (2/7), skipper Shubhang Hegde (2/23) and Rishabh Bansal (1/17) also chipped in with wickets.

Chasing the total, opener Kumar Kushagra top-scored with a 50-ball 29, while Divyaansh Saxena (21), Sourav Dagar (24) and Shashwat Rawat (17) also contributed with the bat.

With this win, the Indian U-19 team has taken an unassailable lead in the series. The fifth and final ODI is scheduled to be held on November 30.
