In MOUNT MAUNGANUI India face Australia in U-19 World Cup opener. India’s potential future stars geared up to lock horns with Australia in their big-ticket campaign opener of the ICC U-19 World Cup on Sunday.
Coached by the distinguished Rahul Dravid, there is no dearth of talent in the squad.
India are three-time champions, the last triumph coming in 2014.
While Dravid, who has been at the helm of U-19 and India A squad for some time, may not like to focus on individuals. It is very difficult to not see the likes of skipper Prithvi Shaw as the vital cog in the team’s batting wheel.
Shaw, who has created ripples with his exploits in the domestic circuit for Mumbai. There is Himanshu Rana, who has also amassed plenty of runs in Youth ODIs.
