Sai Kishore took three wickets and Tilak Varma smashed a half-century as India thumped Bangladesh by 9 wickets on Friday to succeed in the Asian Games males’s cricket gold medal match.

Games debutants India will play the winner of Pakistan and Afghanistan, who meet within the different semi-final of the Twenty20 event in a while Friday.

Left-arm spinner Kishore took 3-12 and off-spin-bowling all-rounder Washington Sundar had 2-15 to limit Bangladesh to a paltry 96 for 9 on the Zhejiang University of Technology floor in Hangzhou.

Number three Varma scored an unbeaten 55 off 26 balls and captain Ruturaj Gaikwad was 40 not out when India sealed the win with greater than 10 overs to spare.

Dropped from the programme on the 2018 Jakarta Games, cricket has returned in Hangzhou with powerhouse India making their first look in a coup for the event.

India received gold within the girls’s event final week.
