(7 FEB) ICC U19 World Cup 2024: An incredible knock by skipper Uday Saharan and Sachin Dhas led India U19 to book another U19 World Cup final as they snatched a win out of South Africa’s grip in a cut-throat semifinal match. The Indian captain also leads the most runs in the tournament list followed by Musheer Khan and Sachin Dhas. We brought to you the latest updated list of Players with the most runs and most wickets after India U19 vs South Africa U19 semifinal.

The U19 World Cup 2024 semifinal 1 was a pure entertainer where the game was wavering throughout the course of 50 overs of the chase. India U19 who have always batted first in the tournament took a bold decision of bowling first in the semifinal after winning the toss.

South Africa’s offensive play in the early and late stages of their innings allowed them to attain a respectable score despite a significant slowdown in the middle overs. The home team posted the target of 245 in 50 overs courtesy of 64 from Richard and 76 from wicketkeeper-batter Pritorious.

Even after losing four wickets for thirty-two runs in 12 overs, Sachin Dhas and captain Uday Saharan managed to hold onto the crease. After they forged a strong partnership of more than 170 runs, Saharan and Sachin Dhas’s outstanding stand helped India pull off a thrilling chase.

A bit of a fumble towards the end where India lost two wickets for just a run and the skipper also got runout, but Raj Limbani ensured no further damage and took the team home with a boundary. India U19 won the game by two wickets.

Indian youths are exhibiting some of the finest performances on the pitch, which has given them a lot of confidence. In addition to captain Uday Saharan and top-order batsman Musheer Khan, who are in peak form, Sachin Dhas also owns a century and a 96. While left-arm orthodox Saumy Pandey is India’s leading wicket-taker in the event, he is receiving strong support from the team’s pace attack.

Kwena Maphaka was a tournament mvp for South Africa. He collected three fifers and a total of 21 scalps. With 21 wickets in the competition, the 17-year-old came very close to matching Bangladesh’s Enamul Haque Jr.’s (2014) record of 22 wickets for the most wickets in a single Under-19 World Cup edition.
