A Dominant Display: Australia Triumphs Over India

Australia secured their fourth U19 World Cup title with a commanding 79-run victory over defending champions India in Benoni. This historic win marked the first time Australia emerged victorious against India in the final, having faced defeat on two previous occasions.

Australia’s Record-Breaking Batting Performance

Opting to bat, Australia set the highest total in an U19 World Cup final, amassing 253/7. The foundation for this imposing score was laid by crucial partnerships, notably the 78-run stand between Harry Dixon (42) and captain Hugh Weibgen (48). Despite facing a challenging spell by Naman Tiwari that saw the dismissal of Dixon and Weibgen in quick succession, Harjas Singh and Ryan Hicks added 66 runs for the fourth wicket.

Harjas Singh’s spectacular innings of 55 off 64, featuring 3 fours and 3 sixes, proved crucial. Ryan Hicks played a supporting role with a score of 20 off 25. The late surge was led by Oliver Peake, who contributed an unbeaten 46* off 43 balls, including 2 fours and a six, propelling Australia to a formidable total.

India’s Uphill Battle

In response, India faced an uphill battle as the Australian bowlers, led by Mahli Beardman and Raf Macmillan, created significant breakthroughs. Despite a valiant effort by Adarsh Singh, who top-scored with 47 from 77 balls, the Indian batting lineup struggled.

The turning point came when Beardman dismissed Singh with a well-executed short ball, ending his resilient innings. Subsequent wickets fell in quick succession, with Macmillan accounting for crucial dismissals. India, having slipped from 55/3 to 91/6, eventually succumbed to the pressure, getting bowled out for 174 in 44 overs.

Beardman and Macmillan Shine in Bowling

Mahli Beardman and Raf Macmillan emerged as the heroes for Australia, sharing six wickets between them. Their impactful bowling performance played a pivotal role in dismantling the Indian batting order and securing the World Cup title.

Brief Scores: Australia 253/7 (Harjas 55, Weibgen 48, Peake 46*; Limbani 3-38) beat India 174 in 43.5 overs (Adarsh 47; Beardman 3-15, Macmillan 3-43) by 79 runs
