Tauranga: The final of the ICC Under-19 cricket World Cup was halted for a short while by rain as India began their chase of a 217-run target at the Bay Oval ground in Mount Maunganui here on Saturday.

Prithvi has scored 232 runs in 5-matches so far with his highest score 94 coming against Australia in the group stages of the tournament.

Australia is looking confident with his last win, which came against Afganistan in the Semifinal of ICC U19 World Cup 2018. I (have) unfortunately not been able to reply to all of them, but thanks to all of them. Head Coach Rahul Dravid played his cricket with sincerity and it was pleasing to see the boys uphold the value.

Australian captain Jason Sangha won the toss and elected to bat first, whenever India had the opportunity to chase in the tournament they won by massive margins with the smallest among them being - 100 runs. If Prithvi Shaw manages to win the current edition, he will join the illustrious list of Indian captains who won under-19 World Cups.

Australia's Lloyd Pope is also in contention to finish as the tournament's leading wicket-taker, sitting just one wicket behind Roy following his 8-35 against England in the quarter-finals.

India's opponents, Australia have had a rough start.

It was India's sixth appearance in the under-19 final. Ishan Porel, Shiva Singh and Anukul Roy picked up two wickets each for India.

Globally, future Test stars Virat Kohli (India 2008), Sarfraz Ahmed (Pakistan 2006), Mohammad Kaif (India 2000) and Owais Shah (England 1998) have also lifted the trophy.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says the report released by his office will lead to new sanctions against Russian Federation . The remaining 96 names are those of businesspeople, all with a net worth of more than $1 billion, according to BBC.

While both sides have been impressive throughout the tournament, India will believe it has the edge, being the only unbeaten side in the competition. "If you look at our match against Australia too, we put up a good total, even though we lost a couple of wickets after an early partnership".

Shaw's dismissal brought in the centurion of the semi-final against Pakistan, Man-of-the-Tournament Shubman Gill (31 off 30; 4X4), who raised 60 runs for the second wicket with Manjot before perishing to off-spinner Param Uppal.

Get past the Indian top three, break into the untested middle order. Skipper Sangha will hope his boys would put their foot on peddle when facing India and cross the final hurdle. Six years ago India wins this title under the Captaincy of Unmukt Chand and India wins the title third time in under19 History.
