Sunday’s U19 World Cup final saw the Australian army defeat their Indian counterparts in a one-sided match, following the senior men’s cricket team’s defeats at the World Test Championship and the 50-overs World Cup final.
Australia won easily by 79 runs as India’s batting collapsed in their attempt to chase a record 254, the highest-ever total in a U19 World Cup final. This ended India’s hopes of capturing the trophy for a sixth time.
Pacer Naman Tiwari and his partner Murugan Abhishek had a moment of resolve as the scorecard read 151/8 and a target of 254 runs loomed huge. Meanwhile, even though they were losing, fast bowler Naman, took a positive stance when he advised his buddy Abhishek to learn from the game. He was heard saying:
Guru yaad rakhna, haarenge par seekh ke jayenge.”
The video went viral after the incident which happened duornh the final between India and Australia.
Who is Murugan Abhishek?
Murugan Perumal Abhishek is a U-19 cricket player from India who was born on October 12, 2004. The 19-year-old bowler born in Hyderabad plays for India national under-19 cricket team. Not much is known about his personal life.
Full Name, Murugan Perumal Abhishek ; Born, October 12, 2004 ; Age, 19 Years, 4 Months, 1 Days ; National Side, India ; Batting Style, Left Handed
He has never played in the IPL and had listed himself in the 2024 auction for a base price of Rs.20 lakhs but went unsold.
India passed the 150-run threshold at 91/6 thanks to Abhishek’s counterattacking 42 off 46 balls, which appeared to be nothing short of a miracle. Abhishek attacked the Australian bowlers with Tiwari at one end and smacked three fours off an over by Charlie Anderson.
The kind of innings Abhishek produced was reminiscent of Hardik Pandya’s 2017 Champions Trophy final performance for India. India was chasing a difficult total of 338 there as well, and their innings was completely destroyed.
Hardik gave the Indian team some hope when they were down at 6/72 and he went after the Pakistani bowlers, hitting a blistering 76 off 37 balls. Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja shared an innings of 80 runs for the seventh wicket before Hardik’s innings was abruptly ended by a run-out.
