IN-U19 vs JPN-U19: The reigning champions have started their title defence on a promising note by thrashing another sub-continent side Sri Lanka U19 by 90 runs. They next face the underdogs of Group A i.e. Japan U19 who will be hoping to play their first complete game of the tournament after their first match against New Zealand U19 ended in a no result.
India U19 have started like champions and would be looking for yet another massive victory against the minnows. It would be a daunting task for Japan U19 to hold back the reigning champions, and it would be interesting to see what game-plan they have in the store for this crucial fixture.
