ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup Final: India Hold Edge over Australia, History Suggests


India, Feb. 2 -- The Indian U-19 cricket team has been a force to reckon with when it comes to big tournaments. The Men in Blue have won the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup thrice and are a step away from becoming the only side to win four titles. To do so, they will have to ward off the final challenge in their path - Australia.
