Four-time champions India will take on Australia in the Semifinal of the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2022 at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua tomorrow at 6.30 PM Indian Time.
India’s campaign was hit with COVID-19 after Indian captain Yash Dhull and five others tested positive following the first match. Dhull and four others returned to action for the quarter-final against Bangladesh, but Nishant Sindhu, who was the stand-in skipper in Dhull’s absence, tested positive and missed the quarter-final.
Now Sindhu has recovered from COVID-19 and will be available for selection for the semifinal. Record four-time champions India had beaten Australia in the warm-up game ahead of their tournament opener against South Africa.
Meanwhile, the first semifinal match between England and Afghanistan is underway at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
