India has become the first team in the history of the U19 World Cup to qualify for four consecutive U-19 World Cup finals. India made it through the final of the ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup 2022 after a 96-run win over Australia at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.

India has qualified for the U19 World Cup finals backed by a phenomenal 204-run third-wicket partnership between skipper Yash Dhull and deputy skipper Shaik Rasheed, which took India to 290/5 in their 50 overs. India scored 27 runs in the final over and Yash Dhull was named player of the match for his spectacular century knock. 

Australia fell 96 runs short with seven wickets down while chasing down the total. Indian spinner Vicky Ostwal picked up 3 wickets, adding to Australia's unease at the crease. Australia will now face Afghanistan on February 4th in the third-place playoff.
