On social media, a touching exchange between India's Murugan Abhishek and Naman Tiwari during their team's 2024 Under-19 World Cup final match vs Australia is going viral. Despite India seeming like a losing team, the couple could be seen chatting to one another in the leaked video in a very positive way. Before the fourth ball of the 38th over, when India required 103 runs off 75 balls and had just two wickets remaining, a quick chit-chat occurred. "Haarenge par seekh ke jayenge". We may not win, but we will still learn from it)," was the conversation between Murugan and Naman that the stump mic captured.

Australia's dominance over India in the ICC World Cup finals saw a new chapter added to their story on Sunday as they won the Under-19 title in Benoni, South Africa, by a score of 79 runs.

Australia batted by choice and smashed a massive 253 runs for 7, forcing India to do the biggest chase in a junior World Cup final match.
However, in the decisive stage leading up to victory, Uday Saharan's team collapsed to 174 all out as the Australian bowlers, led by the ferocious Mahli Beardman (3/15) and the tactful off-spinner Raf MacMillan (3/43), would not allow them any breathing room.
This was Australia's fourth U19 title and first since 2010, and it helped to prevent the disappointment of losing to India in two title matches in 2012 and 2018.

Many people see this result as a continuation of Australia's victory over India in the senior World Cup last year in Ahmedabad.
