Indian Colts Defeat Bangladesh in Thrilling Final to Win Record-Breaking 7th U-19 Asia Cup Title

Riding on left-arm spinner Atharva Ankolekar’s fifer, Indian under-19 team defeated their Bangladeshi counterparts in a low-scoring final by a thrilling margin of five runs to win their record seventh Asia Cup title in Colombo on Saturday. Defending a paltry total of 106 runs, the Indian colts bundled Bangladesh for 101 runs, courtesy of 18-year-old Ankolekar’s 5/28 in eight overs. If Ankolekar’s spin of web was too much to tackle for the Bangladesh batsmen, Akash Singh rattled them with his pace from the other end to return with a magnificent figure of 3/12. V Patil and SS Mishra contributed with a wicket each. Chasing a small target, Bangladesh got off to a shaky start after they were reduced to four with 16 on the board. However, skipper Akbar Ali and Mrittunjoy Chowdhury tried to steady the ship for their team with scores of 23 and 21 respectively. But both fell short to the viciousness of the Indian bowlers and once they were back to the pavilion it was all regulation for the young Indian attack.........Read more

The cars are designed and built to provide safe and comfortable travel with a high level of personal protection for the occupants. There is a growing global market for armoured vehicles at present, and a large number are manufactured with various protection ratings.
