In anticipation of the upcoming ACC Men’s U19 Asia Cup 2023 in the UAE, the Junior Cricket Committee has diligently finalized India’s U19 squad, aiming to defend their championship title in the prestigious tournament. India, with an illustrious track record, stands as the most successful side in the competition, having clinched the trophy a remarkable eight times.

The selected U19 squad comprises 15 talented members, each poised to showcase their cricketing prowess on the international stage. Additionally, three standby players will be accompanying the squad, ready to step in if the need arises during the tournament.

These standby players will be crucial in maintaining the team’s flexibility and readiness for any unforeseen circumstances.

In a strategic move, the selection committee has also unveiled a list of four reserve players. However, it’s important to note that these reserve players will not form part of the touring contingent. Instead, they will be on standby, diligently honing their skills and staying prepared to step into action should the situation demand.

With a combination of experience and emerging talent, the defending champions aim to etch another glorious chapter in their cricketing history, adding to their already impressive collection of eight championship titles.
