India U-19 cricket team was handed a big blow by their Bangladeshi counterparts, as India faced their second successive defeat, to bow out of the U-19 Asia Cup. After being thrashed by Nepal on Sunday, India were once again seen at the receiving end in a do-or-die clash and surrendered meekly against Bangladesh to crash out of the quadrennial event.

India, who needed to beat Bangladesh to keep their title hopes alive, reached 187 for eight in 32 overs with Salman Khan scoring 39 at the Royal Selangor Club in Bukit Kiara.

Bangladesh will take on Pakistan in the first semi-final at the Kinrara Academy Oval ground tomorrow while Nepal will face Afghanistan in the other semi-final on Friday. India were struggling at 85 for 4 at the halfway mark.

Put in to bat, India U-19's No. 7 batsman Salman Khan top-scored with 39, while wicketkeeper-batsman Anuj Rawat scored 34. The last four wickets added 71 to in the must- win game.
