Indian Team Remained Undefeated Throughout Under 19 World Cup 2018

The Indian U-19 team started off with a strong victory against their final opponents Australia, following which they went on to defeat Papua New Guinea, Zimbabwe and finally Bangladesh in the quarterfinals. The team’s performance throughout the series had been a topic of discussion for all as each team player showed extraordinary tricks and moves to make the World Cup journey one to remember. No matter what the playing order or position, the players, whether the openers or the middle-order players, each player maintained a steady pace all throughout the series to reach the top spot.

Australian U-19 Team Last Won The WC In 2010

The Australian team, on the other hand, ended the series on a high although it began with a loss to its eventual final opponent – India. The 2010 U-19 World Cup winners entered the semifinals on Monday after defeating the vigorous Afghan Team.

Team opener Jack Edwards said their victory against Afghanistan was possible following the lessons the team took from their loss against India in the opening match. He added that the Indian spinners were the lot that taught the Aussie boys some valuable lessons that the team discussed with the coach and later on went ahead to use against the Afghan spinners.

India and Australia U-19 teams have so far held three titles each, the last being India’s six-wicket victory against the Aussies in Townsville in 2012.
