India will be playing in their fourth successive U19 finals when they take on England in the summit clash at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Saturday. India has lost 3 out of 4 finals they have played in the recent years and Yash Dhull and his team will like to better the statistics but standing in the way is a determined England team which will impose tough challenge for the Indian side. The English boys will look to win their second trophy and end a drought of 24 years.
When talking about head to head record, India holds an upper hand with 5 wins in 7 matches while England have managed to win on just 2 occasions. This will be the first meeting between the two sides in a final of U19 world cup and both the sides will be raring to go 1 up.
India is the most successful team in U19 world cup history with four trophies and to win their fifth one, they will be dependent on opener Angkrish Raghuvanshi who is the highest run-scorer for India in this tournament with 278 runs to his name at an excellent average of 55.60. In the bowling department, left-arm orthodox spinner Vicky Ostwal is the highest wicket-taker for the team with 12 wickets to his name at an average of 10.75. The swing of Ravi Kumar and pace of Rajvardhan Hangargekar has troubled the top order of the opposition and they will need to strike hard for one more time for India to lift its fifth U19 title.
England skipper Tom Prest will look to end the 24 year-old long title drought and for that he has to step up for his team. Tom is the leading run scorer for his team with 292 runs in five matches at an average of 73 and a good strike of close to 104. Lot will be expected of Joshua Boyden who took 13 wickets in five matches at an average of 9.53, and an impressive economy of just 3.17.
