The match will be played at the Dubai Sports City ground on Friday. There was no live telecast of the Asian Cricket Council Under-19s till the semifinal matches.

Sri Lanka’s Roshan Abeysinghe is one of the commentators broadcasters have chosen. “It is not that I got this assignment because Sri Lanka has won the semifinal against Pakistan on Thursday. I was on the panel any way”, he said over telephone before boarding a flight to Dubai from Colombo.

Sri Lanka beat Pakistan by 22 runs and will now play against India which won against the Bangla-desh team by 103 runs.

“Definitely we like to play against India”, Suranga Wellalage, the father of Lanka’s U-19 cap-tain Dunith Wellalage said exclusively over the telephone.

“Pakistani team is good but didn’t play that well in the match. I thought the wicket was not that good to bat”, he added.
