Put in to bat, India Under 19 scored 297/4 on the back of fifties from Yashasvi Jaiswal, skipper Priyam Garg and Dhruv Jurel. India posted 297 runs on the board in their first inning, in reply to which Sri Lanka were bowled out for just 207. Under the "Title Bachao Abhiyan", Priyam Garg-led India Under-19 team overcome Sri Lanka by 90 works within their very first match. In response, the UAE gained the match simply with the assistance of Figi John's unbeaten century and captain Aryan Lakra's half-century. Tilak Varma and Siddhesh Veer also chipped in with scores in the 40s.

"Six wickets in the first match of the World Cup gives me a lot of confidence and I believed in my strengths as a bowler", said the man of the match.

Clark, who counted four fours and a six in his 53-ball knock, then paired with Jack Haynes to stabilise the innings in a 51-run third wicket stand before Young scythed through the middle order.
