ICC U19 Cricket World Cup Final most runs, most wickets: Australia clinched victory in the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2024 Final, triumphing over India by a margin of 79 runs. This victory marks Australia’s fourth title in the tournament, their first in 14 years and their first-ever victory against India in ICC U19 World Cup Finals. Previously, India have defeated Australia in the finals of the ICC U19 World Cup on two occasions: in 2012 and 2018.

Australia, having won the toss, set a target of 254 runs after concluding their innings at 253/7. In reply, India aimed to surpass the ICC U19 World Cup record chase in the final but fell short, getting bundled out for 174 runs. The Indian team has encountered a persistent challenge of losing crucial matches in ICC finals and semi-finals, leading some fans on social media to dub them as “chokers.” 

Team India faced defeat against Australia in multiple high-stakes cricket finals: the WTC (World Test Championship) final, the World Cup final, and the U-19 World Cup final.
