Under-19 World Cup: Skipper Uday Saharan, Three Other Indians In Team Of The Tournament

Four Indian players including skipper Uday Saharan and star batter Musheer Khan featured in the U-19 World Cup's Team of the Tournament announced by the ICC on Monday. Batter Sachin Dhas and Saumy Pandey are the other Indian players in the team. India finished runners-up after a 79-run loss to Australia in the title clash here on Sunday, which brought to an end their unbeaten run in the tournament.

Top run-scorer for the event, Saharan played a pivotal role in India's dominance through to the final.

Scoring consistently throughout the event and registering a century against Nepal, Saharan saved his best performance for the thrilling semi-final against South Africa, dragging India back from the brink of elimination with vital 81 runs to seal their spot in the final.
