India won the match by a convincing margin of 96 runs, cruising to the final of the U19 World Cup for the fourth straight time.

However, India had a sluggish start to the match after winning the toss and opting to bat.

The four-time champions lost openers Angkrish Raghuvanshi and Harnoor Singh cheaply.

But, Dhull and vice-captain Shaik Rasheed took the matter in their own hands, stitching a fantastic 200-run partnership for the third wicket.

While Dhull was run-out on 110 while backing up, Rasheed was also caught on the next ball, failing to reach double figures by 6 runs.

A later surge from Dinesh Bana (20) took India to a total of 290 for five.

In reply, Australia were rolled over for 191 as Lachlan Shaw top-scored with a fine 51.

India will face England in the final for a record-extending fifth U19 World Cup title.
