Under-19 World Cup | Harnoor, Angkrish shine as India posts 307

Opener Harnoor Singh (88) and Angkrish Raghuvanshi (79) guided a virus-hit India to a mammoth 307 for five against Ireland in an Under-19 World Cup game in which it barely managed a playing XI.

With six of the players, including skipper Yash Dhull and his deputy Sheikh Rasheed, forced into isolation after testing positive for COVID-19, Harnoor and Angriksh stitched together a 164-run stand. Harnoor hit 12 fours in his 101-ball knock while Angkrish stroked 10 boundaries and two sixes in his 79-ball innings.

Nishant Sidhu, who led the side, hit 36 and shared a 64-run stand with Raj Bawa (42). Rajvardhan Hangargekar hit five sixes, including a hat-trick of maximums in the last over, in his fiery 16-ball 39-run unbeaten cameo that took India past 300-run mark.
