So, that's all from our side as well. India A advanced into the final after a miraculous performance in the semi-final and now we are in for a treat as India A will go head-to-head against their arch-rivals Pakistan A in the grand finale of ACC Mens Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2023. Well, what's the date for this grand finale?๐Ÿค” It's going to be played on upcoming Sunday, it will be a great weekend for cricket aficionados. 

For now, this is Deepak Prakash signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Ayan Chatterjee, and scorer/analyst Ghanendra Singh Thakur. CHEERS!
Yash Dhull (Player of the match & India A Captain): "It was a difficult wicket to bat on due to turn and bounce from the pitch. 211 was a good score to defend. Yeah, we didn't start well but we were confident that we have good quality spinners. We planned to take it deep but in the heat of the moment, it didn't happen. Nishant Sindhu is the ace of spades of our team he does something for us anytime when it comes to batting or bowling. Looking forward to playing against Pakistan. (Answering about  his own form) I will only be satisfied after we win the final."
Saif Hassan (Bangladesh A Captain): "We played well, but we collapsed in the middle order. Yes, I think everything went to plan. It was a good total and the start was good, but then we collapsed. We remained positive, but we played rash shots and that cost us today. I think as I said played rash shots and would have taken some more time we would have won this game. Yes, Tanzin has been brilliant, Mahedi bowled well. There were good individual performances, and hope they learn from this and come back stronger."

8:32 PM IST & Local Time | Deepak: A brilliant comeback from India A bowlers as they pulled a rabbit out of a hat, yes it was nothing less than a miraculous performance from India A. Bangladesh A were scoring at a brisk pace and were heading towards victory but Nishant Sindhu wreaked havoc with the ball and turned the tide of the game. India A storm into the Final and they will face their arch-rivals Pakistan A in the grand Finale. 

Earlier, Bangladesh A won the toss and invited India A to bat first. Sai Sudharsan and Abhishek Sharma spearheaded the innings for India A and added 29 runs for the first wicket before Sai departed for 21 runs. Abhishek departed after contributing 34 runs. India A faced a massive collapse in the middle and were reeling at 137/7 in the 37th over. Skipper Yash Dhull paired up with Manav Suthar, steadied the sinking ship and went on to complete his half-century in a crucial match. Suthar supported well but failed to bat till the end and sacrificed his wicket for skipper Yash. Suthar contributed 21 runs before getting run out. Hangargekar smashed a couple of boundaries but eventually departed for 15 runs. India A's innings came to an end at 211 runs in 49.1 overs, with skipper Yash being the last batsman to depart after scoring a well-made 66 runs.

On the bowling front, Mahedi Hasan, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, and Rakibul Hasan bagged a couple of wickets for Bangladesh A, while Ripon Mondol, Saif Hassan, and Soumya Sarkar contributed one wicket to Indiaโ€™s downfall. 

In pursuit of India Aโ€™s paltry 211 runs, Bangladesh A started their innings on a rollicking note as Mohammad Naim smashed four boundaries in the very first over of the innings and set the tone for the chase. Naim and Tanzid Hasan scored at a brisk pace in the first powerplay and oozed Indian bowlers. The opening pair formed a solid foundation with a partnership of 70 runs before Naim was dismissed for 38 runs by Manav Suthar, providing India A with a crucial breakthrough. Tanzid continued his sublime form and completed his half-century but the southpaw failed to convert it into a big score and departed for 51 runs. Following the wicket of Tanzid, Bangladesh A triggered a mini-collapse and lost four wickets in quick succession, which also included the key wicket of Soumya Sarkar. 

Mahmudul Hasan Joy and Mahedi Hasan tried to steady the ship but their progress was halted very soon as Mahedi departed for 12 runs and left his team in deep waters.  Bangladesh A kept losing wickets like a pack of cards and were bundled out for 160 runs. India A win by 51 runs and advance into the grand Finale. 

On the bowling front, India A leaked too many runs in the first powerplay, and nowhere in the game but Nishant Sindhu wreaked havoc with the ball and turned the tide of the game by bagging 5 wickets. Manav Suthar, who drew the first blood for India A, extracted three wickets, while Yuvrajsinh Dodiya and Abhishek Sharma contributed one wicket to Bangladesh A's downfall. 

Stay tuned for the post-match presentation.
