Here are 5 Indian Players To Watch In The U19 World Cup Final
Despite missing a few games owing to Covid, India’s skipper is still the tournament’s third greatest run-getter, trailing only Angkrish Raghuvanshi (278) and Raj Bawa (212). After stepping out to bat in the semi-final against Australia with India in trouble, Dhull produced a critical century. Dhull and Shaik Rasheed put India in a great position by adding 204 runs for the third wicket.
So far in the tournament, the Indian captain has 212 runs at an average of 106 in three matches. He has a strike rate of 89.83 and has played for half a century.
Angkrish Raghuvanshi, India’s leading batsman, has been a revelation for the tean thus far in the U19 World Cup. In five games, the right-handed batter has tallied 278 runs, averaging 55.60 runs per game. The tournament’s leading run-getters are ranked fourth and fifth, respectively.
Raghuvanshi has also contributed with the bat, claiming two wickets so far in the campaign.
Raj Bawa is another Indian hitter who has impressed thus far. In the encounter against Uganda, the middle-order batsman was on fire, hitting 162 not out off just 108 balls. He has 217 runs batted in, with an average of 72.33 and a strike rate of 110.71.
Vicky Ostwal, India’s highest wicket-taker in the tournament, has been head and shoulders above the rest of the Indian bowlers. Ostwal is eighth on the list of most wickets taken in this year’s competition with 12 from five matches.
He has not only taken wickets, but he has also bowled at a low economy rate of 3.39.
So far in the tournament, the outstanding medium pacer has hurried a lot of hitters. Despite the fact that he is not among the top wicket-takers in the 2017 U19 World Cup, Hangargekar has been a vital member of the Indian squad throughout the competition.
He has five wickets at a 3.35 economy rate and has made superb use of the long handle towards the end of India’s batting innings.
