Emerging Asia Cup Final

Pakistan A team has won the title of Emerging Asia Cup 2023 played in Sri Lanka. Pakistan cricket team has won this title for the second time in a row. Earlier in the year 2019 also, Pakistan’s junior team won this title by defeating Bangladesh. On the other hand, Team India won this title for the only last time in 2013 under the captaincy of Suryakumar Yadav. The India A team, captained by Yash Dhull, was definitely a victim of poor umpiring in this match, but poor bowling and poor middle-order batting were also the reasons for the team’s defeat.

Talking about this match, Indian captain Yash Dhull won the toss and decided to bowl first. Pakistan got off to a great start. Openers added 121 runs. After this the Indian spinners got the team back. But Tayyab Tahir’s century and Mubasir’s brilliant innings helped Pakistan to post a mammoth score of 352 runs. Harshit Rana, Rajvardhan Hangargekar and Yuvraj Singh Dodia scored runs with an economy above 8. In response, Abhishek Sharma played the only half-century innings of 61 runs for India. Apart from this, none of the batsmen could impress. In the end, India A were all out for 224 runs and lost the match by 128 runs.

Bad memories of 2017 Champions Trophy resurfaced

India’s defeat brought back memories of the defeat suffered by the senior team in the 2017 Champions Trophy. Something happened in this match from the very beginning that what happened in London 6 years ago started to be remembered. In that match where Kohli won the toss and bowled first, Team India had to face defeat by 180 runs. Something similar happened here too and in this high pressure match, Yash Dhull won the toss and chose to bowl first. After this, Saim Ayyub’s wicket on Hangargekar’s no ball also reminded of Bumrah’s no ball on which centurion Fakhar Zaman was out. The special thing is that this happened in the fourth over of the innings in both the matches. After this, Pakistan had scored a huge score above 300 there too and it happened here too. Team India’s momentum was spoiled here by Tayyab Tahir’s century.

The wounds of India’s 2017 defeat were fresh with this defeat.

Talking about the history of this tournament, its first edition was played in 2013 when Team India won the first title by defeating Pakistan under the captaincy of Suryakumar Yadav.

After this, in 2018, India’s junior team lost to Sri Lanka in the final and lost the chance to win the second title. In 2019, Pakistan won the title by defeating Bangladesh. Now Pakistan won this title for the second consecutive time and Team India lost in the final of the tournament for the second time.
