With this win, India became the first team to reach the final of the U19 World Cup four consecutive times. India will face the England boys on Sunday for the U19 title.
After winning the toss, skipper Yash Dhull chose to bat first. It didn’t start well for the team as India lost their openers before 13 overs. But then came the massive partnership between the captain and the vice-captain. Skipper Yash Dhull scored a brilliant century, and the vice-captain was unlucky as he was dismissed 6 runs short of a well deserved century. Both players added 204 runs for the third wicket. Shaik Rasheed scored 94 and the skipper made 110 runs off 110 balls. And with the late flourish from the wicket-keeper batter, Dinesh Bana (20 runs off 4 balls), India reached a competitive total of 290/6 in their 50 overs.
Chasing the target, Australia never looked comfortable and lost their wickets at regular intervals. Lachlan Shaw was their top scorer. He scored 51 runs. Vicky Ostwal took three wickets for India, while Ravi Kumar and Nishant Sindhu each took two.And with this win, India made it to the final and announced themselves as the toughest team in the tournament. After this outstanding performance, skipper Yash Dhull and the Indian team got praise from ex-cricketers and analysts. However, the former England skipper was one of them. Michael Vaughan took to Twitter and shared a tweet to congratulate the Indian team and skipper Yash Dhull.
However, this tweet caught the eyes of Indian fans, and they started to troll Michael Vuaghan due to his jinx nature.

You can call it bad-luck or anything, but it happens a lot. So twitterati were up to this.

So, can India make it five or will England have the upper hand? Stay tuned for the latest cricket news and updates.
