ICC U19 World Cup 2020: Complete schedule of India matches

Led by Priyam Garg, India will start their U19 World Cup campaign with a clash against Sri Lanka on January 19 with an aim to reach the final which will be played on February 3.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • India will play Sri Lanka, Japan and New Zealand in the group stage of the U19 World Cup
  • The final of the tournament will be played on February 3
  • India have won the U19 World Cup 4 times already

Defending champions India will look to claim the U-19 trophy for the 5th time when they begin their campaign on January 19 in South Africa.

India are already the most successful-ever side in the U-19 World Cup, winning four times. Current India senior skipper Virat Kohli was also a product of this tournament. The other players who came from U-19 World Cup and made it big are Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and Prithvi Shaw among others.

Even before going into the junior World Cup, some of the players have already rose to fame during the recent IPL 2020 auctions. Priyam Garg bagged a whopping Rs 1.9 crore in the auctions, while Ravi Bishnoi was bought for Rs 2 crore by Kings XI Punjab. Yashasvi Jaiswal’s struggle story from selling pani puris for a living to making it into the U-19 World Squad has already inspired millions of Indians.

India will test their title credentials in Group A in U-19 World Cup. Their first opponent will be Sri Lanka. India will definitely be a force to reckon with at the World Cup as they have been enjoying winning run in the recent time.

India U-19 team won the Under-19 Asia Cup in September and a Tri-Nations tournament with England and Bangladesh held on English soil.
