The ongoing 2nd semi-final in the ICC U19 World Cup between India and Australia is a thrilling battle between both teams. Batting first, India had a troublesome start as the team suffered two early blows. Angkrish Raghuvanshi was left clueless over an outswinger bowled by Australia's William Salzmann in the 8th over, and Harnoor Singh was caught behind just after four overs.

When both the openers returned to the pavilion, the team's total read 37 for 2 but little anyone knew that was going to witness one of the best partnerships in the tournament. Skipper Yash Dhull and his deputy Shaik Rasheed played an innings of their life and steadied the ship for their team. Both the players looked strong enough in front of Australian bowlers and played smart innings to take the team to a defendable total. Yash Dhull continued the successful legacy of India captains performing exceptionally well in the U 19 World Cup by scoring a century in the semi-final.

When it looked like India had a firm grip over the match and seemed the team would cross the 300 run mark, the team suffered an unexpected blow in the form of a bizarre run-out, which caused Yash Dhull's wicket. It all happened in the last ball of 46th over when Rasheed played a straight drive on Jack Nisbet's bowl, but the bowl went on hitting the stumps at the non-strikers ends. But, what came as a surprise to everyone was that Nisbet's finger touched the tip of the ball before it hit the stumps. Yash had already left the crease anticipating a quick run by the time it hit the wicket. Nevertheless, Yash knock was one of the best-played innings in the tournament, considering the crucial situation.
