Despite Ali Raza's 4 wickets for Pakistan, Australia held their nerve, chasing down 179 with just 5 balls and 1 wicket to spare. They'll face India in the final, mirroring the men's ODI World Cup final a year ago. Earlier, Tom Straker shone with 6 wickets, restricting Pakistan to 179.

Azan Awais and Arafat Minhas top-scored with 52 runs each, but 7 other batters failed to reach double digits.

This will be the third consecutive ICC event that will see India and Australia play each other in the final. Australia beat India at the ICC World Test Championship 2023 final at the Oval and the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 summit clash at Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium Ahmedabad.

This will be the eighth time that India and Australia will play each other in the final of an ICC event. Australia holds the edge over India with a 5:2 head-to-head advantage over the Men in Blue in the summit clashes of global events. However, the good news for the Indian camp is that both their wins have come in the ICC Men's U-19 World Cup finals (2012, 2018).
