That's it from the coverage. Thanks for tuning in.

22:16 (IST)

Bangladesh captain Akbar Ali: It's like a dream come true. It's all because of the hard work we have done in the last few months. Some of our bowlers were very pumped up. Some of the things that happened should not have happened. I also congratulate the Indian team. I thank our support staff. It's been a very good experience for us. It's just the beginning for us, I hope it's the stepping stone for us.

22:12 (IST)

Priyam Garg, India captain: Results didn't go our way, but very happy with the way we fought. Our guys tried their best. The toss was a factor, the wicket was a little damp. The way we played, the way we approached was very good. 215-220 would have been a very good target. We couldn't have done much with the bowling. 177 was not a good total. Bangladesh played well too. Very good experience to play in South Africa.

22:08 (IST)

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Man of the Tournament: I really enjoyed the tournament and it was really good. I had a good experience of playing in South Africa, on how to play on these wickets. I really enjoyed that. I'm just thinking about what I play next, I only think about my process. I will stick to my process.

22:06 (IST)

Akbar Ali, Bangladesh captain: When I entered the middle, we needed a partnership. I told my partner that we shouldn't lose a wicket. The planning was simple. We knew India would not let it easy, they're a very challenging side. We knew it would be a difficult chase. I am a person who wants to keep things simple. In the first half of the tournament, I was not getting enough chances to bat and today I wanted to capitalise.

21:51 (IST)

Things have calmed down now, looks like. The teams shake hands. Bangladesh take a lap of honour and dance in front of their fans. Thoroughly deserved win, this. India look rather stunned.

21:47 (IST)

Some ugly scenes too, as a few Indian and Bangladesh players clash after the game. Not great scenes these. This has been a tightly, and emotionally, contested match.

21:45 (IST)

BANGLADESH WIN! Rakibul flicks Ankolekar for a single to deep mid wicket and there is loud celebrations. The team runs in, hugs the players in the middle as Bangladesh celebrate their maiden title. Stunning achievement this.

21:42 (IST)

ONE RUN AWAY FROM A BANGLADESH WIN! Rakbul hits Sushant for a boundary and then gets a single. Scores are level. 1 off 24 now.

21:39 (IST)

We have a revised target. Bangladesh need 7 more in 30 balls. The target is 170.

21:33 (IST)

Update: Covers are coming off. Play should resume soon as the rain has stopped. Still an outside chance for India then.

21:22 (IST)

RAIN STOPS PLAY! It's pouring down now and the covers come on. Players go off the field. Bangladesh are ahead in the DLS equation by 16 runs.

21:18 (IST)

It's raining now. India bring on Yashasvi Jaiswal, trying to hurry through overs. They need a wicket now. Bangladesh need 16 off 60. They're comfortably ahead in the DLS equation.

21:14 (IST)

Akbar is playing a gem here. He's moved on to 37, without doing anything fancy. Just playing the ball on merit. Bangladesh 21 away. 66 balls remain.

21:09 (IST)

Unlucky there for India! The ball from Akash Singh hits the bowlers' footmark at the other end and flies over the keeper. 4 byes. Bangladesh only 24 away now.

21:06 (IST)

The wind is picking up. Hats and caps are flying. Bangladesh 29 away...

21:05 (IST)

Tyagi has finished his spell. 33 runs from his 10, but no wickets. He'll be disappointed.

21:02 (IST)

It could start raining anytime. Bangladesh are slightly ahead on DLS method now. India badly need a wicket, and Tyagi is the man trying to produce it.

20:52 (IST)

Kartik Tyagi doesn't attack the stumps often enough, which means his ninth over doesn't fetch a wicket. Bishnoi has bowled out, Tyagi has only one left. India need three wickets, Bangladesh need 35 runs.

20:47 (IST)

Bishnoi finishes his spell. Ends with 4 for 30 from his 10 overs. Potentially game changing spell. The remaining passage will tell if he wins the man of the match or not.

20:37 (IST)

WICKET! Huge wicket. Jaiswal the man for India. Emon falls after a brilliant knock. Flighted ball, he drives it in the air and straight to extra cover. Emon goes for 47, Bangladesh need 35 more.

20:33 (IST)

Emon is playing a beauty. He's struggling with his fitness but is fighting through. Bangladesh need only 37 more. Bishnoi has only one over left.

20:29 (IST)

Garg goes for the part timer in Yashasvi Jaiswal, but no wicket there. 8 runs from the over, including a boundary through an edge and an overthrow. Bangladesh just 42 away from history.

20:25 (IST)

Terrific over from Bishnoi, but Emon has survived it. India appealing for everything in vain. Bangladesh 128 for 6. Dark clouds in the corner too. Bangladesh are 6 runs ahead on DLS at this stage.

20:14 (IST)

Emon is injured, he's not able to run properly but doesn't matter! He's smashed two boundaries off Akash Singh, taking the momentum towards Bangladesh. They need 52 more.

20:08 (IST)

Kartik Tyagi bowls a good over, but continues to be wicketless. Bangladesh need 65 runs.

19:59 (IST)

Sushant comes on for another over. India are giving away some easy runs here. Another over comes to an end. Bangladesh are 110/6.

19:49 (IST)

OUT: Third time lucky for Sushant. He had two dropped chances in the same over, but the bowler finally gets his man, Das for 5. Bangladesh are 102/6.

19:43 (IST)

There was a run out chance for Bishnoi, but he fails to hit the stumps. And Akbar gets a four in the meantime. In fact make that two in the over. This is not good by Bishnoi, giving away some easy runs. It's 97/5. 

19:32 (IST)

OUT: Sushant has a wicket here. A short one, Shamim goes for an expansive drive, and Jaiswal takes an excellent catch in the deep. Bangladesh are 85/5.

India vs Bangladesh U19 Cricket World Cup 2020 Final Match Latest Update:

BANGLADESH WIN! Rakibul flicks Ankolekar for a single to deep mid wicket and there is loud celebrations. The team runs in, hugs the players in the middle as Bangladesh celebrate their maiden title. Stunning achievement this.

Preview: India will be looking to extend their dominance in Under-19 cricket with a fifth title, while Bangladesh seek maiden silverware in the final of the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2020 at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom on Sunday.

India, the defending champions, have already won the tournament a record four times. This is the first time Bangladesh are in the final of an U-19 World Cup. This will be India's seventh final since 2000 when they lifted the trophy for the first time.

India are the favourites given their track record and form, but Bangladesh will be no pushovers. Both sides are unbeaten so far; India have reached the final after beating Australia and Pakistan in the two knockout games, while Bangladesh overcame South Africa and New Zealand.

India have been clinical in most games, with batsmen and bowlers all in form. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who made a century against Pakistan, is the highest run scorer of the tournament with 312 runs from five innings while legspinner Ravi Bishnoi has 13 wickets from five games to be fourth in the list of wicket takers.

Pacer Kartik Tyagi has become a star too, swinging the ball in and bowling yorkers at will to get 11 wickets to his name.

"The fact that we allow a cricketer to play the U-19 World Cup only once is a big reason behind the team's success. While most teams have cricketers who have played in the previous edition," India U-19 fielding coach Abhay Sharma told PTI from Potchefstroom.

"It just goes to show that the system under the visionary leadership of Rahul Dravid (NCA head) is flourishing. Credit to BCCI as well that other teams want to follow our structure."

India's success is a result of their process. Before the tournament, they played about 30 games in different part of the world. They also played a quadrangular series in South Africa before they played their World Cup opener against Sri Lanka.

Bangladesh suffered a quarterfinal loss at the 2018 edition, but gave India a run for their money in the Asia Cup last year where they lost the final by only five runs.

Mahmudul Hasan Joy, with 176 runs from five games including a semifinal century against New Zealand, is Bangladesh's highest scorer of the tournament. Left-arm spinner Rakibul Hasan has 11 wickets to lead their wickets tally. Bangladesh's array of left-arm spinners will provide a test for India.

If they win, it will be a sweet revenge against the sub-continental giants, who have found a way to tame Bangladesh at the senior level in close finals including the 2018 Nidahas Trophy and 2016 World T20.

"We don't want to take unwanted pressure. India is a very good side. We have to play our 'A' game and do well in all three departments. Our fans are very passionate about their cricket. I would want to tell them, keep supporting us," said Bangladesh skipper Akbar Ali after semifinal win over New Zealand.
