IND vs AUS U19 World Cup Final LIVE Score: It’s yet another 50 Overs World Cup final between India and Australia. While the two teams squared off in the ODI World Cup final in November last year, almost three months later their junior sides are in the finals of the Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup final. If there is anything that this shows, it is the dominance of these two sides in world cricket across and a proper domestic and youth development structure in place in both these countries.
Almost inevitably then, some of these players will go on to become the superstars of tomorrow and compete in the Men’s ODI World Cup among other major cricket competitions. India have had an unbeaten run up until the summit clash, much like the ODI World Cup last year and had a major scare in the semifinals, like they had in that tournament. They are up against an Australian side who are also unbeaten in the tournament, however, one of their fixture had been washed out. Much like the India U-19 side, they too faced a scare in the semis but ultimately came out on top.
Players To Watch Out For:
Uday Saharan and Musheer Khan the two of the leading run-scorers of the tournament are both in the Indian camp and the team would need at least one or both of them to come good in a high-pressure summit clash. For Australia, Harry Dixon has done the bulk of the team’s scoring while Hugh Weibgen has been in great form too.
With the bowl, left-arm spinner Saumy Pandey has been the highest wicket-taker for India with 17 scalps to his credit while Tom Straker of Australia has been their most successful bowler with 12 wickets.
