India Dominates Top 5 Batsmen in Under-19 World Cup 2024
The first finalist team of the Under-19 World Cup 2024 has been decided. India has secured a place in the final by defeating the host South Africa. India’s bowlers have performed well, but the batsmen are in a different rhythm. Even after the top-3 failed against South Africa, India won the match.
Not only this, Indian players also dominate the list of batsmen who have scored the most runs in the tournament. Let us tell you about the top-5 batsmen of the World Cup 2024.
Uday Saharan – 389 runs
Indian captain Uday Saharan is the highest run-scorer in the World Cup 2024. In 6 innings of 6 matches, Uday has scored 389 runs at an average of around 64. He scored a century against Nepal in the last match of the Super Six before scoring a half-century in the semi-final. But Uday’s strike rate is only 79.
Musheer Khan – 338 runs
All-rounder Musheer Khan is doing wonders for India with both ball and bat. He has played two centuries in the tournament. Musheer has scored 338 runs in 6 innings at an average of 67. His strike rate is 101. Musheer is also the Indian batsman who has hit the most 29 fours and 8 sixes in the tournament.
Sachin Dhas – 294 runs
Sachin’s role in the team is that of a finisher. He scored runs quickly in the lower order in the first four matches. But when he got an early chance against Nepal and South Africa, he showed that he can also handle the innings. In 6 innings, Sachin has scored 294 runs at a strike rate of 117.
Lhuan-dre Pretorius – 287 runs
South African opener Luan-dre Pretorius has also been in great form in the World Cup. He has scored 287 runs in 6 innings. Three half-centuries have come from his bat in the tournament. He also scored a fifty against India in the semi-final. But now his team is out of the tournament.
Jimmy Dunk – 263 runs
Jimmy Dunk’s name is surprising in this list. He has scored 263 runs in just 4 matches. Dunk has scored half-centuries in three consecutive matches. He played the biggest innings of 90 runs against South Africa. However, even after this, his team could not win a single match in the group round.
