Press Release


The All-India Junior Selection Committee have selected Himanshu Rana to lead the India U-19 team for the Under-19 Asia Cup to be played in Malaysia from November 9-20, where India will take the field as the defending Champions. Surprisingly, Prithvi Shaw has not been selected in the team.

Team India are defending champions of the tournament and have won the event thrice. While Rana will lead the team, Abhishek Verma will serve as his deputy during the tournament. The biggest surprise, however, was the exclusion of Prithvi Shaw from the squad.

The selectors were of the opinion that 17-year-old Prithvi Shaw, who recently scored a century (154) in the Duleep Trophy final, should play in the ongoing Ranji Trophy.

Full team for the U-19 Asia Cup :

Himanshu Rana (Captain), Abhishek Sharma (vice-captain), Atharva Taide, Manjot Kalra, Salman Khan, Anuj Rawat, Harvik Desai, Riyan Parag, Anukul Roy, Shiva Singh, Tanush Kotian, Darshan Nalkande, Vivekanand Tiwary, Aditya Thakare, Mandeep Singh.
