Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage of the Under-19 World Cup finals between India and South Africa. I am Binoy George and I will be bringing you the live ball-by-ball commentary.

Toss and teams: The news out from the middle is that South Africa have won the toss and elected to field on an extremely hot day in Kuala Lumpur. Virat Kohli, the India captain, wasn't too fussed, saying he would have batted and was looking to put South Africa under pressure by setting a large target under floodlights. Both teams go into the finals unchanged.

Pitch report: The pitch would help the seam bowlers as there is dry grass and it is expected to swing in the evening.

It is going to be an exciting final, India are the only unbeaten team in the tournament, South Africa have lost only once - to India. For more details on the finals check out the preview by George Binoy
