Ganguly said that hosting an U19 World Cup is a loss-making affair. “You can say it’s a loss-making tournament. Most World Cups not featuring the senior men’s teams are non-profit. But that’s not the reason the U-19 World Cup hasn’t been played in India. And I think it’s going to be held in India.”

The Uday Saharan-led team reached the final of the tournamenr after beating hosts South Africa in the semis while Australia got better of Pakistanis to reach the summit clash. India will look to defend the title for the first time. Australia aim to win 4th ICC title in last one year with senior women’s team winning T20 World Cup 2023 and senior men’s team clinching the WTC mace as well as ODI World Cup trophy last year.
