Four teams were in action on the sixth day of the ongoing ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup 2022 including India, Australia, Ireland and Scotland. Indian squad had a major scare with several members of their squad testing positive for covid-19 including their captain Yash Dhull and five others and therefore were forced to field a vastly depleted eleven.
But the team stepped up and put up a dominating show to crush Ireland in their Group B clash to qualify for the Super League quarterfinals. On the other hand, Australia sailed to a seven-wicket win to bounce back from a four-wicket defeat to Sri Lanka in a Group D clash.
Here’s how the four groups are stacked after Day 6
No matches from group A were scheduled for Wednesday. Therefore, no changes in it.
Group B standings
Four-time winners India played their second match of the competition on Wednesday and put up an all-round show against Ireland. Batting first, India posted 307/5 before bundling out their opponents for 133 for a massive 174-run win. With the win, they continue to be at the top of the standings in their group having collected four points and also qualified for the last-16. Ireland have dropped down to the third spot.
