India vs Bangladesh Final Match Prediction, U19 World Cup
India will look to seal their second consecutive Under-19 Cricket World Cup title and their fifth in total when they take on Bangladesh in the final of the 2020 tournament at Potchefstroom, South Africa. The match, at the JB Marks Oval, takes place on February 9 and is scheduled to start at 10:00 local time.
The defending champions have won all five matches so far, beating Sri Lanka, Japan and New Zealand in the group stage and then Australia and Pakistan in the knock-outs to reach another final. They boast the top run-scorer in the tournament, Yashasvi Jaiswal, who has scored three half-centuries and, most recently, an unbeaten century in the ten-wicket semi-final win against Pakistan.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, have beaten Zimbabwe and Scotland before a no result against Pakistan ensured they finished top of their group. Though a little fortunate, the Tigers have taken full advantage – beating South Africa and, last time out thanks to Mahmudul Hasan Joy’s century, New Zealand to reach their first ever final at this level.

Bangladesh were unchanged last time out and it is highly likely that will remain the case for the final. Of the 11 that beat New Zealand, only Hasan Murad has not played every match anyway.
BAN U19 Key Players
Rakibul Hasan: Took his 11th wicket of the tournament in the fourth innings in which he has bowled last time out, following up his 5-19 in the quarter-final victory against South Africa.
Mahmudul Hasan Joy: A centurion against India in England last year, and Bangladesh’s star man as he hit 100 in their semi-final win against New Zealand too.
Shoriful Islam: Took 3-45 last time out and has generally been tidy with the ball on his way to seven wickets from four innings.
BAN U19 Team Form
Bangladesh have only faltered once on this run to the final, and they were saved by the rain on that occasion as their match against Pakistan was declared a no result and the Tigers consequently topped the group.
Since then, they have thrashed hosts South Africa, as Tanzid Hasan, Towhid Hridoy and Shahadat Hossain led the way with the bat in a total of 261/5 and Rakibul Hasan then took 5-19 as the hosts were dismissed for just 157. It set up a semi-final against New Zealand, and Mahmudul Hasan Joy led the way for Bangladesh, scoring exactly 100 as they reached 215/4 in 44.1 overs to seal a six-wicket win.
