The young guns representing the India u19 team take on the Australian u19 team tomorrow on 2nd February 2022 at the Providence Stadium. India will be keen to make another successive final and correct the wrongs of the last world cup campaign.

While India has had a solid campaign they have had a covid affected journey so far. With each passing game, the batting lineup is undergoing significant alterations. The bowling attack has been mostly untouched and pace has proven to be India's strength. Remarkably, they bowled Uganda and Ireland out for 97 and 133 respectively. They've also dismissed South Africa for 187 and Bangladesh, the defending champions, for 111.

But their opponents Australia, are no strangers to fearsome pace. With in-form batsmen in their rank and scoring runs in the tournament. The Aussies pose a tremendous threat to the Indians.  ​​Teague Wyllie with an average of 132 and Campbell Kellaway with an average of 52.66 in this tournament, the Aussies will remain bullish about their chances.

Will the Aussies prove too much to overcome? Or can India live up to their tag of tournament favorites and march forward to the final?

Must-Picks

Australian batsman Teague Wyllie has been amongst the runs and surely will be looked upon to hit the ground running early. Captain Cooper Connolly also scored a century during the warmups to the tournament against the Indians.
