Vicky Ostwal resumed his incredible run in the tournament, taking 3/42 and bowling Australia out for 194 in 42 overs with Nishan Sindhu (2/25). Australia went from 75/1 to 125/7 before India completed the formalities and advanced to their fourth Under-19 World Cup final overall. However, India’s start was not encouraging. After winning the toss and electing to bat, Australia bowled in a controlled manner to deny India any opportunities. William Salzmann dismissed Angkrish Raghuvanshi for a duck, and Jack Nisbet dismissed Harnoor Singh Pannu for a duck. But Dhull and Rasheed took over from there, settling in first and then accelerating with panache to increase the run-rate.

Ravi Kumar got off to a great start with the ball, trapping the in-form Teague Willey. Before Raghuvanshi broke the stand and Ostwal joined the party, Campbell Kellaway and Corey Miller attempted to recover with a 68-run combination. As Australia’s downfall began, the spinners made their presence known. Tom Whitney and Jack Sinflied were unable to do much more than narrow the loss gap. As the last Australian wicket fell, Rajvardhan Hangargekar effected Whitney’s run out, setting the way for an India-England final on Saturday and India into U19 WC final.
