In a span of three months, India twice went undefeated in the group stage of the ICC competition and reached the finals, but fell short in the title match. Incidentally, in both title matches, they faced their familiar rival, Australia, and ended up losing. First there was the senior team in the ODI World Cup final and now the Under-19 boys under the leadership of Uday Saharan.
Earlier, India had also lost to Australia in the World Test Championship final.
