Special mention to Indian team for reaching the 2024 finals. Some of the players may not be in the team who won last time or who played in the last U19 world cup.
Round of applause to the new players who stepped up so far.
All the best to the team in other endeavours.

Another disappointing result. Not only for the fans, but think about the players
They did all the hard work till the end, and it so happened that we lost the match.
It's fine... Let us wait for another occasion to prove our mettle.
Spare a thought for these Indian youngsters. They carried the weight of expectations of a billion people right from the moment they boarded that flight towards South Africa, and they exceeded those expectations for the majority of the tournament. India was dominant throughout the league phase, and Uday Saharan, Musheer Khan, Sachin Dhas, and Co. surely have some quality batters for the future. However, the burden of a big final proved to be too much for these young shoulders, as they crumbled against a quality side with clear plans in place to outbeat and outtactic the Indians.
Congratulations to the Australian young players for their great victory against a strong team.
India will need to be ruthless and tactful in equal measure while dealing with an unpredictable England when the third Test of a riveting Test series begins in Rajkot tomorrow.
After England shocked India in the series opener at Hyderabad, the hosts came back strong in Vizag to get on level footing, leaving the five-match series perfectly poised.
The brilliance of Yashasvi Jaiswal (321 runs) and Jasprit Bumrah (15) allowed India to make a comeback in the series but concerns remain over a misfiring middle-order, which will now be relying on the young talent to deliver the goods.
India vs England, 3rd Test.
Series: England tour of India, 2024
Date & Time: Feb 15-Feb 19, 09:30 AM LOCAL
Rahul's unavailability for the third Test has put forth the possibility of Mumbai batter Sarfaraz Khan getting his long awaited debut in the longest format. The domestic run machine could be teaming up with one-Test old Rajat Patidar to occupy two of the most coveted batting spots in the middle order.
Wicketkeeper KS Bharat's persistent failures with the bat has raised the possibility of India turning to Uttar Pradesh's 23-year-old Dhruv Jurel, who is known for his aggressive batting.
