Bangladesh stun India; UAE shock Pakistan



Ariful Islam's counter-punching fifty and a fiery spell by left-arm pacer Maruf Mridha helped Bangladesh secure a comfortable four-wicket win over , propelling them to the final of the ACC Under-19 Asia Cup on Friday in Dubai.

On a slightly double-paced pitch, Indian batters struggled, getting bundled out for 188 in 42.4 overs. Musheer Khan (50) and Murugan Abhishek (62) were the main contributors. Maruf's exceptional spell (4/41) gave Bangladesh early control in the second semifinal.

Despite some jitters, Bangladesh chased down the target in 42.5 overs, with Ariful Islam's impressive innings of 94 off 90 balls. Maruf set the tone for Bangladesh's success with a superb opening spell, reducing India to 13 for three inside seven overs.

In the first semifinal, UAE surprised Pakistan by 11 runs, setting up a final clash with Bangladesh. UAE posted 193 all out, thanks to captain Aayan Khan's 55 and opener Aryansh Sharma's 46. They defended the target, bowling out Pakistan for 182 in 49.3 overs.
