Australia has set India a target of 246 runs to win the ICC U19 World Cup 2024 final after posting 245 for 7 on the board in Benoni. Harjas Singh, Hugh Weibgen, and Harry Dixon were the key contributors to Australia's innings, with Harjas top-scoring with 55 runs. Defending champions India now face the challenge of achieving the highest successful chase in U19 World Cup final history to secure their sixth title.
In response to Australia's formidable total, India's bowlers performed well, with Raj Limbani taking three wickets and Naman Tiwari claiming two. Despite facing an uphill task, India remains optimistic about their chances, with captain Harjas Singh expressing confidence in his team's ability to chase down the target. However, Australia's strong finish in the final overs, led by Oliver Peake's unbeaten 46 off 43 balls, has put pressure on India's batting lineup.
