ICC U-19 World Cup: Despite Covid trouble, India register dominant win over Ireland to enter Super League stage | Cricket News – Times of India

TAROUBA (Trinidad and Tobago): Harnoor Singh and Angkrish Raghuvanshi’s show with the bat was backed up by a dominant bowling performance as India defeated Ireland by 174 runs in Group B to enter the Super League stage of the ongoing ICC U19 World Cup here at the Brian Lara Stadium on Wednesday.
With this win, India have now registered victories in their opening two matches, and now the colts will lock horns with Uganda in their final group-stage game on Saturday.
India were forced to name a depleted playing XI as six players tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of the match, but this was no problem for the side as they registered a comprehensive win.

Chasing 308, Ireland got off to the worst start possible as Liam Doherty (7) and Jack Dickson (0) were dismissed cheaply. Ravi Kumar sent back Doherty while Rajvardhan Hangargekar got the better of Dickson. Ireland’s troubles increased when David Vincent (8) was returned to the pavilion via a run-out in the seventh over of the innings, reducing them to 17/3.
Ireland kept on losing wickets at regular intervals, resulting in a comprehensive win for India. Nathan McGuire and Scott MacBeth put on a brave show for Ireland as the duo put on 39 runs for the seventh wicket, but it did not prove enough.

Earlier, opener Harnoor and Raghuvanshi played knocks of 88 and 79 respectively.
Sent in to bat, the colts got off to a brilliant start with the bat as the openers put on 164 runs for the first wicket, which saw both batters going past their respective fifty-run mark. Ireland finally got the breakthrough in the 26th over as Jamie Forbes dismissed Raghuvanshi (79).
Harnoor missed out on a century as he was dismissed by Matthew Humphreys in the 35th over. Stand-in skipper Nishant Sindhu (36), Hangargekar (39*) and Raj Bawa (42) also chipped in with valuable knocks to take India’s total past the 300-run mark.
BRIEF SCORES: India 307/5 (Harnoor 88, Raghuvanshi 79; Sherzad 3 for 79); Ireland 133 all out
