Hello! Welcome to India TV Live Blog. Record four-time champions India will face South Africa in their U-19 World Cup opener, so their eyes will be on finding new talent while maintaining their illustrious record. Strong performances are expected from Harnoor Singh, Rajvardhan Hungergekar, Captain Yash Dhul and Ravi Kumar, who have proven themselves in the previous tournaments so far. The Indian team came here after winning the Asian Cup and defeating West Indies and Australia in warm-up matches. The Indian team, the most successful team in the history of the tournament, has reached the final in the last three seasons. No player from the Indian team, which lost in the final against Bangladesh two years ago, made it to the senior team. Now it remains to be seen if any of the 2022 Under 19s can do these wonders.

India under-19: Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Aaradhya Yadav, Kaushal Tambe, Harnoor Singh, SK Rashid, Vicky Ostwal, Ravi Kumar, Yash Dhul (C), Nishant Sindhu, Raj Bawa, Rajvardhan Hangargekar
