Angkrish Raghuvanshi Facts
- He had endured a torrid start to the 2021 ACC Under-19 Asia Cup, where he was dismissed for 2 and 0 runs respectively in India’s first 2 matches, against the UAE and Pakistan. Things did not improve much in the next 2 games either as he could only manage 35 runs against Afghanistan in India’s last group stage match and 16 runs against Bangladesh in the semi-final.
- In the final match of the tournament, a rain-marred game against Sri Lanka, chasing a paltry target of 102 runs, he had top-scored with 56 runs not out off 67 balls as India had romped home within 22 overs with 9 wickets to spare.
- In the 2nd group stage match of the 2022 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, against Ireland, he had put together an opening stand of 164 runs in 25.4 overs with Harnoor Singh and was India’s 2nd-highest run-scorer with 79 runs off 79 balls. This had helped India post a formidable score of 307/5 and eventually win by a massive margin of 174 runs.
- In India’s last group stage match, against Uganda, he had smoked 144 runs off just 120 balls (including 22 fours and 4 sixes). His partnership of 206 runs with Raj Bawa, who had scored 162 runs not out, was the highest 3rd-wicket stand in the history of the tournament. India had scored 405/5 in 50 overs in that match and had defeated Uganda by 326 runs. This was the second-biggest victory margin in the history of Youth ODIs.
- In the quarter-final match against Bangladesh, he was India’s top-scorer (44 runs off 65 balls including 7 fours) in a nervy chase of 112 runs. India had lost 5 wickets while chasing that low total down and Angkrish’s knock had proved vital in ensuring that the lower order batters did not have to be involved in this tricky chase.
- His form had deserted him in the last 2 matches of the tournament as he was dismissed for 6 runs against Australia in the semi-final and a 2-ball duck in the final against England.
