The ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup has reached its knockout phase and the Super League Quarter-Final 1 of the tournament will take place between defending champions India and their arch-rivals and three-time champions Australia.
India Under-19 have shown their dominance in the ongoing World Cup. They won all their group matches and now they will lock horns with Australia colts in the quarterfinal. In batting, they have Yashaswi Jaiswal, who is in red-hot form with the bat. He has muscled 145 runs in three games for his side with two half-centuries but other batters haven’t lived up to expectations yet.
They will have to come up with improved performance in the crucial clash. On the other hand, Ravi Bishnoi and Kartik Tyagi have impressed everyone with their bowling and the same would be expected from them in the match against Australia.
Australia colts got off to a poor start with a defeat in the mega event but they marked their comeback with back to back wins in the group stage. Their side looks quite settled with all their players contributing well in their respective departments. Tanveer Sangha has been influential with the ball as he has grabbed 10 wickets in his three outings with a four-wicket and five-wicket haul. His performance will play a vital role for Australia in the quarterfinal.
