After the 12 teams were divided into two Super Six groups, India kicked off their campaign against New Zealand U19 with a resounding victory. The Indian bowlers wreaked havoc on the Kiwis, dismissing them for a mere 81 runs while the Blackcaps chased a target of 296. This win marked their fourth consecutive victory, following their performances in the three group-stage fixtures against Bangladesh, Ireland, and USA.
