The under 19 World Cup Semi final at Townsville,Australia&first Test at Hyderabad India.
The game at Townsville assumes more important as it is U19 World Cup.
In their earlier matches India did fairly well to reach the Semis.The batsmen&bowlers proved their might in a few nail biting games against WIndies&Zimbabwe.Apart from this,they ousted Pakistan the favourites for the cup in the Quarterfinal by scoring 18 runs in the final over by the Tailenders.They won the game just by one wicket.This was a glorious achievement for the U19 squad making the Pakistanis look gloomy&disappointed
The squad playes all their games aggressively.Both with Bat&Ball.
If they repeat this performance today there is every likelyhood of the team reaching the Final against Australians.
The match which is in progress have made 160/4 at the moment at the end of 42nd over.This seems to be a good score taking into account the earler performance of all the teams.At this rate India could ,perhaps,finish well over 225 which could be termed as a challenging score.
If bowlers also perform well,it could be a day to remember for the Team.
The final is billed for 26th of August
Let us wish all the Best to both the wc team &test team
