It won’t be wrong if we say the old days of the “Multi-format Domination of Australia” are back. Australian Women are the defending Champions of the ODI as well as the T20 World Cup in the Women’s division. The Australian Men’s team won the coveted WTC Title in 2023 defeating India, defeated India in the ODI World Cup 2023 Final, and now also won the U19 World Cup title defeating India. They will be eyeing the T20 World Cup scheduled to be played this year in the West Indies and the USA.

Once again, a left-handed top-order batsman with a natural attacking instinct proved to be a nightmare for Indian bowlers. Australia’s leading scorer, Harjas Singh, finished with 55 runs. Dixon, Oliver Peake, and Captain Weibgen all made significant contributions to their team’s 253/7 total.

On a pitch with plenty of pace, bounce, and lateral movement, it proved to be too much for the Indian hitters. In the powerplay, they were lackluster as Musheer Khan and Arshin Kulkarni failed early. After getting off to a strong start, Uday Saharan’s square drive fully backfired. Any possibility of an Indian victory ended when Sachin Dhas, the star of the semi-final, was caught behind and out.

Adarsh Singh took his time on the powerplay, chewing up too many balls despite scoring a crucial 47. Sadly, the Indian batting, which has been their main strength for the whole of the competition, was unable to demonstrate its abilities in this crucial finale and was defeated handily in the title match.

Down below is the updated list of players with the most runs and the most wickets in the ICC U19 World Cup 2024:

Most Runs: ICC U19 World Cup 2024 – Player Rankings 1-10

Khan was equally impressive throughout the tournament as he amassed 360 runs in 7 innings at an average of 60.

Australian opener Harry Dixon ended as the third-highest run-scorer of the tournament with 309 runs in 7 innings. Australian skipper Hugh Weibgen is ranked fourth with 304 runs in seven innings. Sachin Dhas, the backbone of India’s middle order in the tournament ended fifth with 303 runs in total 7 innings with an average of over 60. The top five spots are occupied by Indian and Australian players which directly says why these two teams were in the final of the tournament.
