Uday Saharan said this
After losing the match against Australia in the Under-19 World Cup 2024, Indian captain Uday Saharan said that I am proud of the boys. He played really well. Showed good fighting spirit throughout the tournament. We played some hurried shots today. Apart from this we did not spend much time at the crease. We were prepared but could not implement the plan properly. This is where we made a mistake. There was a lot to learn from this tournament, from the support staff and even during the game itself. We will try to keep learning and becoming better. I just want to learn all I can from this tournament and move forward in my career.
India got off to a bad start
Batting first, Australia scored 253 runs for 8 wickets in 50 overs with the help of Harjas Singh’s half-century and Oliver Peak’s useful contribution in the death overs. This was the highest score ever recorded in the final of the Under-19 World Cup. The Indian team had a very bad start against Australia. While chasing the target, Team India lost opener Arshin Kulkarni in the third over itself. He returned to the pavilion after making just three.
After this, Adarsh Singh and Musheer Khan tried to stay on the wicket for some time. But Musheer was out after scoring 22 runs. After this, Team India’s batting fell apart like a pack of cards. Uday Saharan was out after scoring 8 runs, Sachin Dhaas was out after scoring 9 runs and Priyansu Molia was out after scoring 9 runs. India had lost four wickets for 68 runs. But after this, opener Adarsh Singh (47) and lower order batsman Murugan Abhishek (42) showed struggle but these players could not lead Team India to victory.
