Raj Bawa and opener Angkrish Raghuvanshi smashed blistering centuries to power a COVID-hit India to a mammoth 405 for five against Uganda in their inconsequential final Group B match of the ICC U-19 World cup here on Saturday.

This is the highest total in this edition of the tournament.

Having already sealed a quarterfinal spot despite missing five players owing to COVID-19, including skipper Yash Dhull, record four-time champions India meant business as Bawa and Raghuvanshi took the Uganda attack to the cleaners.

Invited to bat, opener Raghuvanshi scored 144 off 120 balls while Bawa remained unbeaten on 162 off just 108 deliveries.

The duo shared 206 runs for the third wicket to take the game away from Uganda.

It was a one-way traffic as the Uganda bowlers had no answers to the Indian onslaught.
