Match report – India outclass Australia by 96 runs in semis to set up date with England in the final
A complete performance from Team India!
WHAT. A. PERFORMANCE! 💪 👌 India U19 beat Australia U19 by 9⃣6⃣ runs & march into the #U19CWC 2022 Final. 👏 👏… https://t.co/QNiMLbHDRg
The plan from me and Rasheed was to bat till the end, and it worked. It's a proud moment (to be the third Indian captain to score a U19 WC ton after Virat Kohli and Unmukt Chand). The idea was to bat steadily, not to try too many shots, and to bat past the 40th over. Myself and Rasheed bat well together, we combine well and it showed.
India storm into the final of ICC U19 World Cup!
India win by 96 runs against Australia and storm into the final of the #U19CWC 2022 👏 https://t.co/qfS18e4PTA
India beat Australia by 96 runs, face England in final!
That’s it! India have done it. They beat Australia convincingly by 96 runs in the semis to enter their 8th U19 World Cup final. A run out and it’s a wrap up of the Australia innings. What an emphatic win for India. Yash Dhull and co. have completely outplayed the Aussies in this clash of two heavyweights. Dhull led the team from the front, scoring a scintillating 110. His deputy Shaik Rasheed also played a sublime 94-run knock as India posted 290 for five after opting to bat first. The India spinners then spun the web around the Aussie batters as the Cooper Connolly an co. looked absolutely clueless in the steep chase. Australia eventually bundle out for 194. So, it’s India vs England in the final now! They now clash for the the title at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on February 5.
