Over the years, the U19 World Cups have given India some fine talents like Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh and Prithvi Shaw. MyKhel takes a look at India's previous final appearances in the tournament.

India led by Unmukt Chand beat the Aussies by 6 wickets at Townsville, Australia, and the skipper made an unbeaten 100 in the final.

There were some other talented players like Sandeep Sharma, Smit Patel and Baba Aparajith who are familiar names via their exploits in Ranji Trophy and IPL.
