India vs Australia U19

The U-19 World Cup in New Zealand is underway and cricket aficionados all over the world are already glued to their TV sets just to spot a player who could make it big in the future. Abhishek Sharma hit 25 runs off 8 balls to achieve that.

The seriousness of their pace wasn't lost on anyone but former India opener Virender Sehwag in particular looked impressed as he took to Twitter to congratulate the team following the win.

India, who will open their 2018 U-19 WC campaign against Australia, are three-time champions, with their the last triumph coming in 2014.

They hurried the Aussie batsmen into playing false strokes and nipped out three wickets each. One thing was not traditionally Indian but a trend in the recent years was two pacers from the country cross the 140kph-mark easily. The splendid top-order batting vindicated Shaw's decision to bat in their tournament-opener. The Prithvi Shaw-led unit defeated Australia by 100 runs.

Shaw was dismissed on 94 when he edged the ball to the keeper, while Kalra was caught at mid-wicket and was dismissed at 86.

Shubman Gill scored 63 runs with six fours and a six to his name.

Australia U19 squad: Jason Sangha (NSW, captain), Will Sutherland (VIC, vice captain), Xavier Bartlett (QLD), Max Bryant (QLD), Jack Edwards (NSW), Zak Evans (VIC), Jarrod Freeman (TAS), Ryan Hadley (NSW), Baxter Holt (NSW), Nathan McSweeney (QLD), Jonathan Merlo (VIC), Lloyd Pope (SA), Jason Ralston (NSW), Param Uppal (NSW), Austin Waugh (NSW). Edwards, though, tad expensive, picked up four wickets for 65 runs.
