The euphoria of India’s magnificent win in the U-19 World Cup final against Australia on Sunday at Townsville is slowly begin to die down. This makes it a perfect time to reflect on India’s performance in the tournament...
If ever a team needs its captain to lead from the front, it is during the final of a World Cup. And this is exactly what India’s U-19 skipper Unmukt Chand did on the big Sunday at Tony Ireland Stadium, Townsville, where his team was taking on Australia in the summit clash.
This was the dream final everyone following the Under-19 World Cup was hoping for. Although some Indians might argue that nothing can beat the excitement of an Indo-Pak clash, the fact still remains that the two best teams in the competition have progressed through to the final, which will be played on Sunday, at the Tony Ireland Stadium, Townsville.
