4 Under-19 World Cup titles for Australia. They lifted the trophy in 1988, 2002, 2010 and 2024. Only India have won more titles - five of them - including the previous edition in 2022.
4 The 2024 edition is the fourth instance of India finishing as runners-up in an Under-19 World Cup tournament, which is also the most by a team.
253 for 7 Australia's total against India is the highest by any team in an Under-19 World Cup final. England's 242 for 3 in a chase against New Zealand to win the 1998 edition was the previous highest.
1998 Australia's win on Sunday was their first against India in an Under-19 World Cup game since 1998. Since then India had won all six outings against Australia between 2000 and 2022, including twice in the finals - 2012 and 2018.
2012 The last instance of Australia defeating India in a youth ODI. In ten meetings since then, India got the better of Australia each time before the 2024 Under-19 World Cup final.
22 Consecutive youth ODI matches won by India while chasing before their 79-run defeat on Sunday. Their previous defeat in a youth ODI game while chasing came in August 2018 against Sri Lanka.
1 Only once has a team defended their Under-19 World Cup crown: Pakistan in 2006, after winning the trophy in 2004. Australia (in 2012) and India (in 2020 and 2024) finished runners-up in pursuit of defending their title.
3 Previous instances of India conceding 250-plus totals at the Under-19 World Cup. Two of those came in wins when they were defending 300-plus totals. Their only loss was against South Africa in 2002 when they conceded 268 for 5 and went down by 112 runs.
397 Runs scored by India's Uday Saharan, the second-most for a captain in a single edition. Cameron White tops the list with 423 in eight matches which he recorded in Australia's victorious 2002 campaign.
46 India's opening stand against USA in the group stage game turned out to be their highest of the tournament. The 2024 edition is now the first where India failed to stitch an opening partnership of at least 50.
