Antigua, February 4: India led by Yash Dhull and England under the stewardship of Tom Prest will vie for the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2022 when they meet in the final at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Saturday (February 5).
It may be recalled that India U19 side has a proud record in the junior World Cup having won it four times, the most by any team in the tournament. They will be eager to add a fifth trophy to the cabinet.
On the other hand, England had won the U-19 World Cup only once, back in 1998. They will be keen to win a second title after a gap of 24 years. So, that will make for a brilliantly contested match.
