India U19 (Playing XI): Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Harnoor Singh, Shaik Rasheed, Yash Dhull(c), Nishant Sindhu, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Dinesh Bana(w), Kaushal Tambe, Raj Bawa, Vicky Ostwal, Ravi Kumar

England U19 (Playing XI): George Thomas, Jacob Bethell, Tom Prest(c), James Rew, William Luxton, George Bell, Rehan Ahmed, Alex Horton(w), James Sales, Thomas Aspinwall, Joshua Boyden

Yash Dhull, Indian skipper: We also wanted to bat first. We take it game by game and we play with a positive mindset. Change of venue doesn’t bother us. No changes in the playing eleven for us.

Tom Prest, England skipper: We will have a bat first, pitch looks a good one and obviously scorecard pressure, chasing in a finals is always hard. To put 230 against them (Afghanistan) and then defend how we did gives us great confidence going into this game. We are playing the same team.

Pitch report by Samuel Badree: A batting paradise, that’s all I can describe about this surface. It is hard as a rock, there isn’t any live grass. The batsmen can trust the bounce and the bowlers need to find way to restrict runs and take wickets. Both teams have quality batsmen and they also have depth in their batting line-up and I think we are gonna see a batting masterclass.
