The recently concluded U19 World Cup witnessed an intense battle between India and Australia, with the Aussies emerging victorious. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has now announced the Team of the Tournament, which features four Indian players and three Australians.

India’s captain and highest run-getter, Uday Saharan, rightfully earned his place in the team. Saharan’s consistent performances throughout the tournament, including a century against Nepal, played a vital role in India’s journey to the final. His best performance came in the semifinal against South Africa, where he combined with Sachin Dhas in a record-breaking 171-run stand for the fifth wicket.

Sachin Dhas, a composed right-hander, also finds his name in the team. He scored a century against Nepal in the Super Six game, further solidifying his place in the lineup.

Musheer Khan, the second-highest run-scorer of the tournament, is another Indian player to make the cut. Khan amassed an impressive 360 runs in seven matches at an average of 60, including two centuries and one fifty.

Completing the Indian lineup is Saumy Pandey, who emerged as the tournament’s second-highest wicket-taker. Pandey’s left-arm spin variety fetched him 18 wickets, the most by any spinner in the competition. With the ability to bowl economically, Pandey played a crucial role in India’s early-stage victories with two four-fers against Bangladesh and New Zealand.

From Australia, opener Harry Dixon and skipper Hugh Weibgen have been included in the Team of the Tournament. Both players performed well in the final against India, contributing to the team’s record total of 253 for seven. Fast bowler Callum Vidler, with 14 wickets in the tournament, also finds a place in the team.

The lineup is completed by West Indies’ Nathan Edward, Pakistan’s Ubaid Shah, South Africa’s Lhuan-dre Pretorius (wk), and Scotland’s Jamie Dunk as the 12th man. Additionally, the team features Kwena Maphaka, the leading wicket-taker and Player of the Tournament, who finished with 21 wickets at an impressive average of 9.71.

This Team of the Tournament showcases the exceptional talent and performances witnessed in the U19 World Cup 2024.
