Hyderabad: Playing like a cohesive unit, Indian colts set a challenging total of 277 against England and bowled them out to earn a thrilling 28-run victory in the third and final One-day International under-19 match on Tuesday, thus clinching the series 2-1. Tuesday's victory, earned at the 46th over of the match, enabled the home side to script a grand double as they had already won the three-Test series 1-0. At the Lal Bahadur Stadium here, Ajay Ratra (45) played a skipper's innings and paired with Siddarth Trivedi (37 not out) to build up a quick-fire eighth-wicket total of 49 runs in 36 balls and tilt the scales in India's favour.On the bowling side, Tamil Nadu spinner Vidyuth Sivaramakrishnan did most of the damage by picking up four wickets for 50 runs, while Amit Mishra picked two for 48.UNI
