Bangladesh’s semifinal game against Afghanistan was washed out without a ball being bowled on Thursday at the De Zoysa Stadium in Moratuwa in Sri Lanka, paving them the way to seal the spot in ACC Under-19 Asia Cup final.

The junior Tiger moved to the final due to the fact of being champions in Group B, according to ACC website.

Rain also washed out the other semifinal game between India and Sri Lanka without a ball being bowled at P. Sara Oval Stadium in Colombo and according to the rules India also moved to the final due to being champion of Group A.

Bangladesh will take on mighty India in the U19 Asia Cup final which will take place at R. Premadasa Stadium on Saturday

In fact no semifinal game was possible at both venues due to heavy rain and the games were called off at 2:15pm local time.

India with three wins in the group stage had topped Group ‘A’ while Bangladesh, who had remained unbeaten in their group, had topped Group ‘B’.  Hence both teams qualified for the finals.

While Sri Lanka would have found India to be too strong to their liking, Afghanistan will be ruing their chances as their bowling had looked formidable throughout the tournament. Afghanistan had beaten Pakistan in their opening game and nearly overcame India as well in the group stage.
