At what point will nerves kick in for the BCCI boys?
1/3rd of the way there, but the 144 to get could seem like double that number if another wicket goes soon.
I sense some nerves already.

Uppal bowls Gill with a beauty. He will play senior cricket for Australia I am certain of that.

Harbhajan Singh is a die-hard India supporter, but come Saturday, he will be rooting for Australia, particularly when his grandson Param Uppal takes the field at the Under-19 World Cup final in Mount Maunganui.

In Chandigarh, he used to make three-year old Param sit on his lap and divert his attention to the cricket while his parents were away at work. More than a decade later, Harbhajan remembers this fondly in Queenstown, where he has followed Australia's tournament up until the quarter-final. He flew home to Sydney before the semi-final, with his daughter-in-law Jaspreet, Param's mother, who had to return to work, but will be "watching from start to finish on finals day," says Devinder Singh Uppal, Param's father, who has stayed back in New Zealand with a few other parents.

"I applied for leaves six months ago, even before he was selected," says Devinder, who works at the New South Wales transport department. "I always wanted to be there if he was picked."

Barring an injury, Param's selection was all but certain in April 2017 when he captained Australia Under-19s for a home series against Sri Lanka. On debut, he scored a hundred too. Later in the year, he was awarded Player of the Series in Australia's Under-19 ODI championship for being the highest run-scorer.

The Uppals moved to Australia from India in 2003 when Param was four years old. Devinder, a lawyer in the Haryana High Court, gave up his practice of 10 years to shift base while Jaspreet completed a teaching course in Sydney to take up a job at a school. Param grew up in an environment that is typical of most Indian families - play cricket, but not at the expense of academics.

West Indies finished third in their group and failed to qualify for super league. Most of the runs of Athanaze in this U-19 world cup have come against minnow level bowlings on Kenya, Canada, Sri Lanka. What exciting level batsman if his team finished only tenth in the tournament.

Just like how it happens in BCCI senior cricket, stars Rohit Sharma (jr) and Virat Kohli (jr) failed in the final whereas Dhawan (jr) scored a century in the final. :grin:

Shivam Mavi reminds me a.lot of Varun Aaron, his bowling action.Mani bowls open chested, predominantly inswing.

Both Mavi and Nagarkoti , I would classify as fast.

On the other hand, among Australians, Hadley has a smooth rhythmic action, bowls fast medium. Evans has an action which gets unruly once he approached the stumps.His foot and follow through at the crease is awkward.

Shubman Gill copies some of Virat Kohli's shots, especially the cover drive, he himself admits he has copied Kohli.
