IND U19 vs AUS U19 Semifinal Highlights: India defeated Australia by 96 runs to reach the U-19 Cricket World Cup final. Earlier, India finished their innings at 290/5 against  with captain Yash Dhull top scoring with 110 runs, followed closely by deputy Shaik Rasheed who scored 94.

India Under-19 skipper Yash Dhull says it was a conscious decision to steady the ship by batting till the 40th over alongside Shaik Rasheed without taking much risk, which helped them notch a 96-run win against Australia in the semifinals.

Off to a shaky start after opting to bat, India were struggling at 37 for 2 when Dhull walked in. The skipper struck a sublime run a ball 110 and stitched a game-changing 204-run partnership with his deputy Rasheed (94 off 108 balls) to post a formidable 290 for five.

The target ended up being too steep for Australia as they were the bowled out for 194 in 41.5 overs. With the 96-run victory four-time champions India cruised to their fourth consecutive final.

“The plan from me and Rasheed was to bat till the end, and it worked. The idea was to bat steadily, not to try too many shots, and to bat past the 40th over,” Dhull said at the post match presentation.
