BCCI announces cash awards for India U-19 World Cup winning squad

"Australia will need to bat out of their skins to cause an upset".

Both teams have so far lifted World Cup trophy three times.

Prithvi Shaw captained India had faced Australia at the start of the tournament and had emerged triumphant by 100 runs.

Australia came into the tournament fresh, and a little wet behind the ears. They have broken the deadlock with Australia and how fitting it is that they have done so against the Aussies! The second-wicket pair added 60 runs, dragging the game away from Australia's grasp.

Coach Ryan Harris has seen his side reach the final despite a lack of top-order runs - Nathan McSweeney's 156 against Papua New Guinea a notable, rare exception. I m very proud, and I m really looking forward to this game.

The Asian giants were untroubled in the chase as their batsmen stamped their authority over the Australians, who struggled to stop the run flow. But that also means they are untested.

Get past the Indian top three, break into the untested middle order.

Things might have been different had Berdych converted his fine start into the opening set, as he probably should have. The crunch seemed to come in the third game, when a forehand error from Berdych gave Federer the break for 2-1.

Ahead of the semifinal, Rahul Dravid spoke of how "under-19 cricket is all about experiences, about giving them different learning environments". "Whenever the team's needed them, they (fast bowlers) have provided the breakthroughs".

Sangha, however, admitted that they were completely outplayed by India in the final.

The captain of the Under-19 squad, Prithvi Shaw is considered the next big thing in Indian cricket. I think the effort we have put in over the last 14 months have been sensational. "But it's great to be talking about India and not talk about spin!"

The grand finale between two of the most successful teams in the tournament shall commence at 6:30 AM (IST). "Not a hard wicket, it was flat and good to bat on", he said.

Soon after the juniors were crowned the champions the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced rewards for the team and the coach. The one player who has hit the headlines for them is the legspinner Lloyd Pope and his mind-boggling figures of 8 for 35 against traditional rivals England put him on everyone's radar.

Thereafter, Merlo and Param Uppal (34) steadied the team with a 75-run fourth wicket stand which saw them going past the 100-run mark, before left-arm spinner Anukul Roy ended Uppal's 58-ball stay with a brilliant catch in his own follow through.
