India beat Australia

It is not often that an Indian side beats an Australian side in a one-day game. The India under-19 team won the the first game of the 5 match series against the Australian under-19 team by two wickets. The youngsters are being closely watched by the chairman of the Board's Talent Resources Development Team, Dilip Vengsarkar and the chairman of the junior selection committee, Praveen Amre.

This under-19 side has some really promising players. 18 year old left-hander, Ravikant Shukla, who top-scored for the Indians in the opening game is the skipper. For another UP lad, 16 year old allrounder Piyush Chawla (a left-handed batsman whose leg-spin bowling skills have been highly rated by none other Erapalli Prasanna) this is a very good chance to impress the selectors. The team also includes the hard-hitting 18 year old chennai opener, Anirudha Srikkanth. Does the surname sound familiar? Yeah, Anirudha is the son of the former Indian skipper, Kris Srikkanth and like his father he can hit the ball a long way into the stands. The team is being coached by the former Indian opening bowler, Venkatesh Prasad.
