India Wins Record 4th Trophy

U-19 WC: India resumes innings after rain stops play

U-19 WC: India resumes innings after rain stops play

Prithvi Shaw (Ind), Manjot Kalra (Ind), Shubman Gill (Ind), Finn Allen (NZ), Raynard van Tonder (SA, captain), Wandile Makwetu (wicket-keeper, SA), Anukul Roy (Ind), Kamlesh Nagarkoti (Ind), Gerald Coetzee (SA), Qais Ahmad (Afg), Shaheen Afridi (Pak).

With 8 wickets remaining, India won the 2018 U19 World Cup.

He reached the nervous nineties as India reached 2/176 after 31 overs - needing just 41 runs to win from the final 19 overs.

Earlier, opting to bat first, Australia got off to a steady start but lost three quick wickets in Max Bryant (14), Jack Edwards (28) and Jason Sangha (13). The late flourish Australia desperately wanted did not come as India controlled the second half of the innings exceedingly well to bowl them out for 216 runs in 47.2 overs.

Harvik Desai and Kalra shared another 89 run partnership for the third wicket in which Desai contributed 47 runs including five fours in 61 delivery. The Rahul Dravid-coached side dished out some fantastic performances right from the start to bring home the trophy they last won in 2012 under the leadership of Unmukt Chand.

The BCCI have announced cash prizes for coach Rahul Dravid (Rs 50 Lakh), players (Rs 30 Lakh each) and members of support staff (Rs 20 Lakh each).

At the rate the Indian batsmen were going, Australia would have needed to set a target closer to 300 to be competitive.

The top three spots have been awarded to the dominating Indian trio of Shaw, Manjot Kalra and Shubman Gill. For Dravid, it was his first taste of World Cup success. Desai hit the winning runs with a boundary off the bowling off Will Sutherland to finish the match off in style. Uppal and Merlo's applaudable 4th-wicket run was shredded in 29th over as the legspinner Anukul Roy dismissed Param for 34.

Congratulatory messages for the young cricketers are pouring in from every corner for the record 4th World Cup trophy.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Working President of the main opposition National Conference (NC) Omar Abdullah congratulated the Under-19 Indian cricket team for winning the World Cup by defeating Australia in the final on Saturday.

Manjot Kalra knocked a scintillating century as he took his side to victory in the finals after coming out to open with the skipper.
