VVS Laxman applauds after Yash Dhull scores a century in the U19 World Cup semi-final.
India won the match by a 96-run margin. Advancing to the U19 World Cup final for the fourth time in a row.
However, after winning the toss and electing to bat, India made a sluggish start to the match.
The four-time champions suffered early losses in openers Angkrish Raghuvanshi and Harnoor Singh.
But Dhull and vice-captain Shaik Rasheed took charge, putting on a fantastic 200-run partnership for the third wicket.
Dinesh Bana’s (20) later surge propelled India to a total of 290 for five.
In response, Australia were bowled out for 191 runs, with Lachlan Shaw top-scoring with a fine 51.
In the final, India will face England for a record-extending fifth U19 World Cup title.
