India U-19 cricketer Himanshu Raha in Asia Cup Himanshu Rana is the captain of India U-19 Asia Cup.

India were knocked out of the U-19 Asia Cup after suffering their second straight defeat in three days. The defending champions lost to Nepal on Sunday and suffered a similar fate against Bangladesh on Tuesday to crash out of the tournament. Rain in Kuala Lumpur had forced the match to be reduced to 32 overs per side and Bangladesh, after electing to field, restricted India for 187 for 8 in 32 overs. The Bangladesh batsmen performed just the opposite of Indians and chased down the target with four overs remaining.

After the defeat, India are out of the tournament and now Nepal and Bangladesh, from Group A, qualified for the semi-finals. Pakistan and Afghanistan are the other two teams to reach semi-final from Group B.

India were reduced to 87 for 4 at halfway mark and were struggling to find batsmen who could play out the overs. Salman Khan, coming in at number seven, scored an unbeaten 39 to help India cross the 150-run mark.

Bangladesh batsmen showed great application on a slow batting strip. Pinak Ghosh and Mohammad Naim Sheikh provided a solid stand of 82 runs for the opening wicket. While Bangladesh lost two wickets in quick succession, Ghosh held on to one end. He paired with Mohammad Tawhid Hridoy and guided Bangladesh to a victory with an unbroken 83-run stand for the fourth wicket.

    It's high time Rahul Dravid should resign as coach of U19 Indian team. Few days back he was commenting on Virat Kohli's aggressive nature and about his tattoos. At least he should offer to resign.

        These two losses reflect reflect directly on the selection process and it must be investigated. Was there favoritism over performance ? Were the most talented players selected for this team ?? Who are the talent scouts and how are they performing their selection process ??? Is there a sports minister who will demand all these answers?
