ICC U19 World Cup, Preview: India vs Australia

Tauranga (New Zealand), Jan 13 - The second day of the ICC Under-19 World Cup will witness the much-anticipated battle between three-time champions India and Australia in their Group B opener at Mount Maunganui here on Sunday.

They are the two most successful teams in U-19 World Cup history, having each won the tournament three times apiece, and both have brought sides stacked full of top-class players, many of whom have already had success against high-class opposition. 

For both teams, it's a case of which one decides to show up. Both have veered between excellent and poor in the last 12 months, with little middle ground. 

The Rahul Dravid-coached Indian colts stormed through two five-match series against England, losing just once and winning eight, with one game being tied.
