India beat Australia to win under 19 cricket World Cup

India beat Australia to win under 19 cricket World Cup

Going by current form, odds are heavily in favour of India. Kalra and Shaw provided India a brisk start, putting on 71 inside 12 overs despite a slight intervention due to rain.

It was an innings checkpointed by big hits, kickstarted by a mammoth over long on from a free hit, and the result effectively confirmed when legspinner Lloyd Pope was deposited onto the banks. Kalra happily played second fiddle when Shaw was batting aggressively. Yet, Australia could not make use of all the lapses. Shubhan Gill was named the player of the tournament for his consistency in batting and helping India throughout the competition.

India colts put forth a stellar show in their opening game by posting a massive 328 on the board, riding on fifties from the top three - Shaw, Manjot Kalra and Shubman Gill. The southpaw, who came out to open for India, remained till the end and took the Rahul Dravid-coached team to the title. "They've played good cricket but if we get a couple of early wickets and put pressure on their players, anything can happen", he said.

"Hopefully it's a memory they cherish for a long, long time, but hopefully not the lasting memory and they have many more great moments and bigger things in future". I think the effort we have put in over the last 14 months have been sensational. "It helps us all to have a good attitude in the field, we're all really pumped up when our fast bowlers do well", he added. Against Australia, he accounted for openers Jack Edwards and Max Bryant, with both getting out trying to force Porel through cover.




But Sangha swatted the questions away with the disdain he hits short balls to the boundary. With Australia 59/3, India were well ahead.

Australia, who were at 183/4 at one point, were decimated by the Indian bowlers with I.C. Porel, Shiva Singh, K.L. Nagarkoti and Anukul Roy taking two wickets each. Shubman Gill average of 170 plus which is monstrous among the batsmen. The 50-run partnership was brought up off 68 deliveries and was beginning to look threatening.

Despite the loss of their captain Jason Sangha for 13, Australia began to construct a solid score as Jonathan Merlo and Param Uppal impressed at the New Zealand ground. Gill has crossed fifty every time he has walked out to bat, Shaw has got runs every time as well and Harvik Desai and Kalra have made their presence felt too.

Australia and India had previously won the title three times each with a fairly even record in ICC U19 Cricket World Cups when it came to head-to-head encounters but India have had the edge in recent years as well as in this tournament, and the men in blue have ended up lifting the trophy for fourth time.
