Hi! Welcome to India TV’s Live Blog. Record four-time champions India will face South Africa in their first match of the Under-19 World Cup, so their eyes will be on finding new talent while maintaining their illustrious record. Good performances will be expected from Harnoor Singh, Rajvardhan Hungergekar, skipper Yash Dhul and Ravi Kumar who have so far proved their mettle in the previous tournaments. The Indian team arrived here after winning the Asia Cup and defeating West Indies and Australia in the warm-up matches. The Indian team, the most successful team in the history of the tournament, has reached the finals in the last three seasons. No player from the Indian team, which lost in the final against Bangladesh two years ago, made it to the senior team. Now it remains to be seen whether any of the Under 19 team of 2022 can do this feat.
