Bhubaneswar: India stormed into the ICC Under-19 ODI World Cup 2024 final with a thrilling two-wicket victory against South Africa in the semi-final on Tuesday.

India victory against the Proteas was powered by 171-run partnership between Sachin Dhas and Uday Saharans for the fifth wicket.

Electing to bat first, South Africa’s Lhuan-dre Pretorius registered his third consecutive 50 in the tournament by smashing 76 off 102. He was supported by Richard Seletswane with 64 runs. The batters helped Proteas score a challenging total of 244 for 7 for India to win.
