Nice.241 target. Again it is for the bowlers to get victory. Hope no catches are missed.

In the Under 19 cricket World Cup, it is the surprising Afghans vs Aussies and India vs Pakistan in the semi finals.

At the moment it seems that the match is on the verge of being called off. If that happens India would be able to maintain the no been whitewashed in South Africa record intact.

Afghans now deserve test ranking. That makes us 10.

They have been already granted test status. Most probably their first test will be against India.

Right, right. I miss that.
So, today, the great sell-off. :)

Surprises galore. Gayle unsold. Chennai don't pick up Ashwin (goes to KXIP), Mumbai don't pick up Harbhajan (goes to CSK), Kolkata don't pick up Gambhir (goes to DD).

Yeah, nice to end the (harrowing) series with a win.
Indian players going for a discount while foreign players taking away the cream. We have seen many of them flounder. Any reason why Uncapped players have a base price of 20 lacs? Mehengai Bahut Hai. 20 lacs is pittance.

Rishabh Pant for 15 crore, Ajinkya Rahane for 4 crore. :bang head:

I think Kohli would have done better to include Rahane from the 1st test itself, if not the second atleast.

Can't understand the logic or the politics behind it.

What is the average age of CSK plyers? :)

Under 19 made a short work of Pakistan with 272, century by Shubham Gill (Prithvi Shah runout 41 in as many balls), and Ishan Porel getting 4 for 17. The boy was auctions for just 20 lacs in IPL. Good acquisition. Pakistan 69 all out in 30 overs.

Yesterday Australia managed to stop Afghanistan's dream run at the U19 World Cup and today India defeated Pakistan by 203 runs. Australia meet India in the finals. India is playing their second consecutive final after having lost the first one to West Indies.

Australia lost to England 1-4 in the ODI series.

I think it should be around 28 years.

Some players who were available for 20 or 30 lacs but were not sold. One could make a good team out of them:

Aditya Tare Manjot Kalra Mahipal Lormor Siddhesh Lad Sharad Lumba Shreya Gopal Harshal Patel Monu Kumar Ricky Bhui Anureet Singh Prashant Chopra Rajnish Gurbani Sheldon Jackson Ankush Bains Shivam Dubey Himanshu Rana Anmolpreet Singh Swapnil Singh Ishwar Pandey Nathu Singh Kedar Devdhar CM Gautam Ishan Porel Chirag Gandhi Akhil Herwadkar R Samarth B Indrajith

I hope, they will get their chance in the coming years.

Of the above mentioned players a few were bought by the teams which are as follows

MI - Aditya Tare, Siddhesh Lad, Sharad Lumba
DD - Manjot Kalra
CSK - Monu Kumar
SRH - Ricky Bhui
RR - Anureet Singh, Prashant Chopra

Prithvi Shaw and Shubam Gill are a couple of batsmen to watch out for.
Similarly Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi are a couple of pacers to watch out for. Both were clocking around 140 kmph consistently in the U19 World Cup. Nagarkoti is an excellent fielder also.
