on Saturday. The India U-19 won the match and will next play against Australia in
the semi-finals on Wednesday.

and share a snippet of the scoreboard and wrote, “Thank You internet for spamming
me with this today. Best wishes Team India U19.” Kaushal added a heart and flag
emoji on the Instagram story.

the knot on December 9 last year.
