Cricket News: After the group-deciding match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka was called off in Sharjah on Tuesday owing to the COVID-19 infection of two officials, India will face Bangladesh in the semifinals of the U-19 Asia Cup.

On Thursday, the semifinal will be held.

Before the tournament’s last Group B match was cancelled due to COVID-19 positive results from two officials, 32.4 overs had been bowled.

“The final Group B match of the ACC Under 19 Asia Cup slated to be played today has been called off,” Asian Cricket Council stated in a statement.

“Two officials have tested positive for COVID-19, which has been confirmed.” Officials are currently safe and being handled according to tournament protocol.

“All match personnel are undergoing testing methods and are being isolated until the findings are received.”

When the match was called off, Ariful Islam (19) and Md Fahim (27) were at the crease with Bangladesh at 130 for 4 after 32.4 overs.

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have already qualified for the semifinals, and the match would determine the group winner and runner-up.

Bangladesh won the tournament due to its higher run rate and will face India in the semifinals on December 30.

Sri Lanka will face Pakistan in the second semifinal.

India is the most successful team in the world, having won the World Cup four times (in 2000, 2008, 2012, and 2018).

India finished second in the last edition of the tournament, which was hosted in New Zealand in 2020.
