India themselves had very good preparations ahead of the U19 World Cup. Yash Dhull and Co won both of their warm-up fixtures, beating West Indies comprehensively in their first game before a win over arch-rivals Australia.

With no players playing from the previous editions the onus will be on Yash Dhull and head coach HrishikeshKanitkar to guide the team throw and continue to build India’s unmatched legacy. India’s maiden U-19 World Cup win came in 2000 and since then, they have won three more, in 2008, 2012 and 2018. Priyam Garg and Co. came close to winning it again last year, but fell at the final hurdle to Bangladesh.
