U19 World Cup - India in finals

In the last under-19 world cup, India was on a roll until they ran into Pakistan in the semi-final, the eventual winners. One bad game and they found themselves out of the tournament. This time around there was no letting down of the gaurd. They simply crushed the opposition. When I say crushed, it is not one of those "put it under the foot and stamp it hard - type of crushes", rather it is the "put it and under the road-roller and squeeze it down into the earth - type of crush". First the top-order batsmen put on an imposing total of 292 on the board and then the bowlers never really allowed the English batsmen to get a breather and bundled them out for 58. In Prasad's words, this was really a "ruthless" performance.

Something like this was always on the cards given the weak opposition. But the real test will come against the Aussies in the final.
