Bangladesh U19 have ended their ACC U19 Asia Cup 2018 campaign with a nail-biting contest against India in the semi-final. Bangladesh lost the match by 2 runs at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

Winning the toss, India were all out for 172 in 50th over thanks to Shoriful 3 for 16 alongside all-round performance from the bowlers. In reply, Young Tigers had a nightmare start after losing 5 wickets for just 64 runs. Then half-centurian Shamim Hossain and Akbar Ali put the fightback and and almost guided Bangladesh to victory. But another collapse in the late order proved too costly as India won the match by 2 runs to qualify for the final. Bangladesh U19 were bowled out for 170 in 46.2 overs.
