The Under-19 World Cup tournament in the West Indies is nearing its conclusion. The four-time champion Indian team will face the one-time champion England team in Saturday’s final. India’s World Cup journey has been fantastic thus far, with the team winning all five of their matches.
The Indian team put in a fantastic performance.
Team India defeated South Africa by 45 runs, Ireland by 174 runs, and Uganda by 326 runs in the group stage. At the same time, Bangladesh, the current champion (2020), defeated the team in the quarter-finals (by 5 wickets). Following that, India defeated Australia in a one-sided semi-final by 96 runs.
All five matches were won by the England team.
When it comes to the England team, on the other hand, they have also won all five of their matches in the tournament. With the exception of the semi-finals, England has won all of their matches by a large margin. The English team won seven wickets against Bangladesh, 106 runs against Canada, and 189 runs against the UAE in the group stage. England defeated South Africa by six wickets in the quarter-finals.
At the same time, England’s team was in trouble in the semi-final against Afghanistan. However, when they returned later, the match had been won by 15 runs. In such a situation, both teams are likely to engage in a high-octane battle.
India has four World Cup victories.
