India is facing a nerve-wracking and exciting opportunity to win their fifth Under-19 World Cup title. India is already the most successful and well-accomplished team in the annals of Under-19 World Cup history. They have four victories in a total of 18 editions of this tournament, with eight appearances in the final match.

Many big wigs of cricket, like VVS Laxman, have congratulated the Indian team on their success in this journey. “The U-19 squad displayed outstanding character and maturity. With only 11 players available for today’s game, they were able to express themselves in such a powerful way. I can’t express how pleased I am with them”, Laxman tweeted.

Even for England, it is a big milestone as they will be playing in the final of the Under-19 World Cup after a long wait of 24 years. According to a report by cricbuzz, Captain Tom Prest and Yash Dhull have given important insights into their emotions and anticipation before the final match.

Tom says, “I’m not sure we can believe it right now, but we’ll be playing in the World Cup final. It’s something you dream about when you grow up, so we’re all incredibly enthusiastic and can’t wait to play. I don’t know whether we can believe it at the moment, but we’re going to be playing in a World Cup final. We’re all very delighted and can’t wait to play, since it’s something you dream about as a kid”.

Virat Kohli spoke to the Indian team and gave his words of wisdom. Dhull says, “The problem with England is that they play in an offensive manner. They have good control and don’t abandon their offensive strategy even if they lose 2-3 wickets. As a result, we’ll try to keep to our schedule and bowl as many dot balls as we can. He (Kolhi) expressed his best wishes to us, stating that the squad is doing well. As a result, his remarks will inspire us. When a senior player addresses the team, the team’s morale improves. He went through the fundamentals with us, such as how to play conventional cricket, how to stick to our game plan, and so on. It was a pleasure to converse with him”.
