As the final date of ICC U19 World cup is getting close, most of the experts expressed doubt about lack of focus by team India due to lucrative IPL auction. They performed well with bat and ball in the semifinals by making 272 runs and dismissing the opponents at 69 runs.
India has to encounter Australia in the final match on Feb 3rd.
India is in best form
Indian players are in a good form and did well in all the matches. They gave a good start by winning over Australia in the first match and then, the team thrashed New Guinea and Zimbabwe to make a top place in the Points table. They registered a victory against Bangladesh to reach Semifinal and did a vibrant performance against Pakistan to confirm the final berth.
The secret behind the success of the team is every member of the team did very well and all the team members are in good form. Along with a good start by opening batsmen, the middle order performed well to save the innings and lower order did a good work to make a decent score even in death overs. The pacers did a tremendous performance to collapse the batting line up of opponents and the spinners succeeded in restricting the score of the opponents. The fielders are giving an extraordinary performance enhancing the all-around strength of the team.
Some of the crucial players have high expectations around them through all the players are doing great. All have eyes on Shubhman Gill who did a century against Pakistan to pave the way to the final match. He has been a competent player all around the tournament.
Captain Prithvi Shaw has been another crucial player who succeeded in giving the team a good start as an opening batsman. This player has the responsibility as a captain to maintain an emotional stability in the team.
Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti did a great job in collapsing the Australian Innings and are expected to give an outstanding performance in the final match. Abhishek Sharma is an all-rounder who is the main weapon of the team by his spin bowling.
The under 19 team reflects the future potential of any team. Under the guidance of head coach Rahul Dravid, the team is expected to work hard and get into the game as Australia is a strong team and that cannot be underestimated.
