Four-time champion Team India has once again prepared troops to contest the U-19 World Cup. The Under-19 World Cup will be hosted by the West Indies from January 14th to February 5th next year. The Indian squad for the World Cup was announced on Sunday. The All India Junior Selection Committee has selected the Under-19 team for this purpose.
Hyderabad young sensation Rishith Reddy was selected for the Under-19 team after exceptionally earning a place in the tri-series. But he was disappointed as he had to settle only with a standby player. This has come as a disappointment for the young lad who was sure about a place in the final squad.
Andhra Cricket Association (ACA) youth sensation SK Rashid has been named in the World Cup squad. The selection committee announced him as the Vice-President of the team. Delhi cricketer Yash Dhul has been named captain. India is the most successful team in the Under-19 World Cup. India won in 2000, 2008, 2012, 2018. India finally finished runners-up in the 2016 Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand.
