India defeated Uganda by a whopping 326 runs in their third group game courtesy of twin centuries from Raj Bawa and Angkrish Raghuvanshi. The former notched the highest score for India in the U-19 World Cup, going past Shikhar Dhawan’s previous highest of 155 against Scotland back in 2004.
The Indians managed to post a total of 405/5 before skittling out their opponents for 79. The match was played in great spirits as evidenced by Laxman’s visit to the dressing room after the match.
Up next for India is the quarterfinal where they will face Bangladesh, who defeated them in the final last time to win the 2020 U-19 World Cup.
