Great start for the Indian colts to their World Cup campaign beating three-time winners in their opening game. Onwards and upwards for Shaw and company. Lots to like about this side coached by Rahul Dravid. Hope you enjoyed our coverage of the game, do join us for  the next game on 16 January against Papua New Guinea at 06:30 am IST. Our coverage will begin from 5:30 am, and until then it's back to watching the big boys grind it out in Centurion.

Australian captain Jason Sangha: The boys tried quite hard. Dropping catches was not ideal. We will keep this aside and focus on next games. Most of these guys have played state cricket so we are used to pressure and crowds. I think the pitch was amazing. We though 300 was a nice total. We thought we lost some patches, some key moments. We still have two more games, so lots to look forward to.

India captain Prithvi Shaw. He is also Player of the Match: It was good fun and challenge. I enjoyed the game. We dominated in all departments, not just batting, but bowling. Playing first-class cricket was a great experience. We have 5-6 guys who have that experience, and it helps. Manjot played very well. He carried out our plans well. Absolutely impressed by fast bowlers. All bowlers looked good, even Ishan, but unfortunately he had to go off. Mavi and Kamlesh did a great job. (On fielding) Like I said, we are getting used to this wicket and outfield, which was a bit wet in the latter stages. I think to be in the process is the right thing. Our coach Rahul sir says the same. Great experience  playing under Rahul sir. He never talks negative. He is very positive even in the nets and there are always positive vibes.

13:40 (IST)

India win by 100 runs. Australia were outplayed in all departments. Indian openers –Shaw and Kalra – setting up the platform with Shubnam Gill coming and striking a timely half-century to take India to 328. Australia started off well, but losing Bryant and Merlo at crucial junctures pegged them back. With Edwards not been able to find the fence regularly and nobody really sticking around with him. Indian fast bowlers were breathtaking to watch. Porel missed out due to an unfortunate slip and twisting his ankle but Mavi and Nagarkoti clocking high on the speed gun produced a sight to be remembered for a long time.

ALL OUT! Slower full toss that dips on Holt. Missed the pull and the ball hit him high on the pads, almost on his thighs. Umpire thinks it would have gone onto hit the leg stump. India finish the game with more than seven overs to go.

OUT! Jason Ralston was never going to complete the second run. He can continue his run towards the pavilion. Holt pulled it to deep square leg and set off for two but a good throw from the deep meant the fall of his ninth wicket.

After 42 overs, Australia 221/8 (Baxter Holt 33, Jason Ralston 2)

Five runs come off Shiva's over.

13:37 (IST)


After 41 overs, Australia 215/8 (Baxter Holt 29, Jason Ralston 0)

A fortuitous four that went over the keeper's head off the top edge and a six helped Australia take 16 runs off the over, but it displayed Mavi's ability to bowl the short ball to good effect. With game in the bag he can experiment.

SIX! Right from the screws! Short by Malvi and Holt thumps it over mid wicket fence. Gone quite the distance.

13:28 (IST)

OUT! Malvi replaced Nagarkoti and now he has awicket to his name. What a superbly executed short ball, bowled at 143 clicks that climbed on to Bartlett, he managed a top edge with Aryan taking a simple catch. India two wickets away.

ICC U-19 World Cup, India vs Australia, latest update: Australia were outplayed in all departments. Indian openers –Shaw and Kalra – setting up the platform with Shubnam Gill coming and striking a timely half-century to take India to 328. Australia started off well, but losing Bryant and Merlo at crucial junctures pegged them back. With Edwards not been able to find the fence regularly and nobody really stuck around with him.

Preview: An unanticipated consequence of Australia’s decision not to send a team to the 2016 ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh is that, without placing at that tournament, they were at the mercy of fate when it came to who they would share a group with.

From a neutral’s point of view, it could hardly have turned out better, with India v Australia set to be one of the clashes of the entire group stages. They are the two most successful teams in U19 CWC history, having each won the tournament three times apiece, and both have brought sides stacked full of top-class players, many of whom have already had success against high-class opposition. We may well look back on this fixture, and the names of those who took part, and be amazed at how many have gone on to have significant careers. Don’t miss it.

Form guide

For both teams, it’s a case of which one decides to show up. Both have veered between excellent and poor in the last 12 months, with little middle ground. India stormed through two five-match series against England, losing just once and winning eight, with one tie. But the Under 19 Asia Cup was a huge disappointment, as the lost to Nepal and Bangladesh and crashed out at the group stages. Australia similarly had a 4-1 series victory set against a 2-0 reverse against Pakistan.

Both teams had notable absentees when they struggled – the likes of Jason Sangha for Australia, and Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill for India – but they will still both be desperate to put those memories behind them with a strong opening performance.

Players to watch

Lloyd Pope (Aus)You don’t often associate legspinners with consistency, with purveyors of the mysterious art normally capable of taking bags of wickets one day and going the distance the next. But in Australia U19s’ series against Sri Lanka U19s, Lloyd Pope bucked the trend, picking up three wickets in each of his four appearances during the series. India traditionally play spin well, but if they underestimate the wild-haired wristspinner, it could be their undoing.

Prihtvi Shaw (Ind)The player some are hailing as Sachin Tendulkar’s heir loves a debut; he marked both his first Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy – India’s zonal first class competition – appearances with hundreds, although with five hundreds from nine first-class games, it’s almost more notable from him to fail than for him to ton up. With this game marking his Under 19 World Cup debut, the odds must be short on him making yet another three-figure score.

World Cup history

Australia won the first-ever ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in 1988, and have since added the 2002 and 2010 titles to their collection. Featuring among the teams were future international cricketers Stuart Law, George Bailey, Shaun Marsh, and Josh Hazlewood. Australia chose not to compete at the 2016 edition of the tournament due to the threat of terrorism.

India won their first title in 2000, with Yuvraj Singh claiming the player of the tournament award, a feat he would emulate for the senior side in 2011 as India won the World Cup proper. The 2004 player of the tournament also came from India, though the Shikhar Dhawan-inspired side lost to Pakistan in the final. The 2008 side, captained by one Virat Kohli, also claimed the title, and India added a third triumph in 2012. In 2016 they came desperately close to securing a record-breaking fourth trophy, but were beaten by West Indies in a last-over thriller.

Head to head

Australia and India have clashed 33 times at this level, with the ledger currently reading 19-14 in favour of the latter. In World Cups however, the teams are tied at two wins apiece. Their most recent World Cup clash came in 2012, when, thanks to an Unmukt Chand century, India triumphed in the final.

Forecast

There is a chance of showers throughout the day, although rain is by no means a certainty. Frustratingly, since play is set to start at 2pm, the rain is most likely to stay away during the morning.

Squads

Australia: Jason Sangha (C), Will Sutherland, Xavier Bartlett, Max Bryant, Jack Edwards, Zak Evans, Jarrod Freeman, Ryan Hadley, Baxter Holt, Nathan McSweeney, Jonathan Merlo, Lloyd Pope, Jason Ralston, Param Uppal, Austin Waugh

India: Prithvi Shaw (C), Shubman Gill, Aryan Juyal, Abhishek Sharma, Arshdeep Singh, Harvik Desai, Manjot Kalra, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Pankaj Yadav, Riyan Parag, Ishan Porel, Himanshu Rana, Anukul Roy, Shivam Mavi, Shiva Singh

IPL 2021, LIVE Cricket Score, CSK vs SRH (Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hydrebad): MS Dhoni tosses the coin, but SRH win the toss and David Warner decides to bat first. "It looks like a different surface than we expected. The pitch has a nice grass covering, we are looking to put runs on the board and win. Two changes - Abhishek Sharma and Virat Singh make way for Manish Pandey and Sandeep Sharma," said Warner. MS Dhoni said he would have bowled anyway. "We were looking to bowl first. There is grass but the pitch looks tacky. There was a lot of dew last evening, and whenever there's dew, we prefer to bowl first. Lungi Ngidi and Moin Ali come back in playing 11 for Bravo and Tahir," said MSD at the toss.
