India have registered a final’s berth for the fourth time on the trot in the U19 World Cup final. The Indian team defeated Australia by 96 runs after bundling them out for 194 while chasing 291 in Antigua.

Indian skipper Yash Dhull notched up a century while Rasheed fell short of it by 6 runs as India posted 290/5 in 50 overs.

Australia had a decent start to the chase but lost their way in the middle overs as spinners did the job for India. Ostwal scalped three wickets while Nishant Sindhu bagged a couple.

India will now meet England in the title clash on Saturday in Antigua.

Yash Dhull | Player of the Match: 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.
